I read that the old Jaguar/Jazzmaster vibrato bars "click" into place. I just have a generic new tailpiece without the string lock, the bar fits in and can stay tight without moving at all, but if you budge it a bit, it can fall out.

Is there some kind of adjustment?

the american units clicked into place, the newer jap stuff doesn't click in. just take a file to the bar of the vibrato unit and put a groove into it, then it will click into place.

I don't care if it clicks or not, I want to know if you can get a tighter fit by adjusting the collet or something, and I am too lazy to remove the tailpiece to find out.

edit: or do you mean it is possible to put a groove so it stays in place and doesn't fall out? I'm not sure that's how it worked with the older bars, they were thinner towards the whole end, not thicker at the very end (which might possibly keep the bar in better).

the original bars had a groove that the collet "bit" into and even tho the bar could move freely it was "locked" into place and it needed a good tug to get it out. the newer jap stuff is just a straight bar, no groove, so it may be tight, but it doesn't click in. i think the cp series was a screw in collet

its not much additional effort to write anese at the end and make it not offensive, not that i think that's rob's intention or anything.

or even saying mij or cij is win win for everyone, cos its the same amount of letters

I do like the abbreviations, I just wish people wouldn't get so pissed off(Not that I've seen anything like that happen... Here, at least.)

for the sake of political correctness i would say cij mij, or something like that, you know if i was selling something on ebay. but, this is shortscale, and my typing style is pretty lazy, so the anese got dropped on that one. def have nothing against the japanese. but the chinese...... ooooo fuck the chinese.

UK population, 63 million; Japan 126 million. GDP of Japan is also more than twice as much.

I would hope nobody would admit such nonsense, but this is the internet. Or are you just counting the number of letters?
