Fixing loose tremolo on Peavey LT guitar

Post by tillai » Tue May 05, 2020 12:09 pm

Hello all,

I have this old Peavey LTD St series (2002) that has a loose tremolo bar and the tremolo does not snap and lock into place and is very loose. I learned from online that is uses a Hipshot "Ultra Glide" tremolo system. I must be missing some lock mechanism that holds the tremolo bar into place and makes it fit and tight. I looked through help online but seems like no one has this issue or probably the guitar is old enough to care. Does anyone have any suggestion?

I have attached the picture of ltd st series model that uses the same tremolo system.

If you push down with the term arm theirs a small Allan screw on the back of the bridge you can adjust the tightness or looseness of the trem arm I hope this helps if I can help in any other way let me know

I hope this will post push down on the trem arm and while holding it down look at the back of the bridge you'll see a small Allan screw you can't see it unless the trem is pushed down that can be used to tighten up the trem arm
