Hi! New to the board and huge Vigier fan.

I own a 2001 Indus and the trem arm has some wobble to it, tried tightening it inside etc but the wobble always comes back pretty fast.
I've heard changing the arm and housing fixes this on old ones but can you still get the 5mm Floyd style collar arms from anywhere?

Failing that are there any recommendations for a drop in replacement bridge?

5 mm are not available at Schaller anymore. You can replace it with a 6mm but you will have to have a luthier or somebody that works on metal to enlarge the hole in the base of the bridge because the insert (black piece) is bigger. It is quite easy by a pro.

Patrice, I own a Shawn Lane 2004 model with the 2010  standard Trem system.   It is fine at the moment, but if it developed saddle problems or a loose Trem arm, what would be my options?      Merci, in advance!    1PatriceVigier

If you have problems parts are still available excepted the 5mm tremolo arm, but is can be replaced by a 6mm
