Hello, just joined the forum. I've been doing several searches for a question I have about the Tremolo Arm on my PRS SE Custom, but haven't had much luck. It feels like there is a lot of slop in the arm at the tail piece. When I bought the PRS it didn't have a stock PRS arm, & was thinking that was the reason for the slop. I ordered PRS arm, when it arrived I noticed that the bends in the arms were a little different & the end that goes into the tail piece was different. Well the PRS has as much slop as the first arm had even with the set screw really tightened down. Now do PRS guitars with Tremolo Arms have a lot of slop normally? Since this is the only PRS that I've played I don't know if this is normal or not. Also it seems like the PRS Tremolo Arm only can lower the pitch of the strings, or can the arm be pulled up to raise the pitch (I've tried pulled up on the arm but not too had & nothing happens)? First let me say that I used to play a lot in many bands when I was younger, but none of the guitars I played had a vibrato arm. Then while I was going to school at Purdue, & still working full time in the evenings I really didn't have very much free time. So my equipment sat in a closet for many years. In the past I've thought about pulling something out to play, but after so many years have gone by those thoughts were forgotten because other projects. Earlier this year my brother was over for a visit, & asked to play my Les Paul. As he was sitting there strumming the strings I was thinking about if I really wanted to go back down that road again. But he left & the Les Paul went back in its case, that was until an old friend stopped in for a weekend's visit. He was someone who I used to get together with for many jam sessions, & still played as good or maybe even better than he did back then. A little after that another friend stopped by because he wanted to see the Les Paul. Then he asked to play something, but I told him that it had been many years since I've played & pretty much forgotten how to play. But after some fumbelling around some things kind of came back. So I thought about stopping into my neighbor's music store, & look around. After picking up, & "playing" many of his guitars I was kind of drawn to 2 guitars one was a Parker PM 2 the other was the PRS. I left that day, but the Parker PM20 kept coming back into my thoughts. I went back into the store a few days later to play the Parker again, & I played the PRS while I was there. Both are very nice guitars; but I think it was because the PRS had Tremolo bar was the reason I left the Parker I the store, & the PRS came home with me as an early Christmas present for myself. The PRS is a nice looking guitar, & feels nice to play. Now I can start to build some calisus back, & see what I can remember.
