Works For Me! Needed this to replacement for my Road Worn Jazzmaster. The one that came with the guitar didn't have a trem lock (bad news if you break a string). Was easy to set up and works fine. It doesn't come with the trem arm and my trem arm doesn't work with it, i guess they have a modern version of the arm. I chose this one over the japan one because allegedly the spring is better and because i knew it would fit my guitar. My only beef with this part is that the trem arm slot thing sometimes buzzes. next time i chance the strings I'm going to see if i can rectify the situation internally.

An Easy and Effective Upgrade for Classic Lacquer Jazzmaster and Jaguar Fit perfectly in my Classic 60s Lacquer Jazzmaster. Negative reviews state the obvious fact that it doesn't come with the trem arm, and if you're replacing the Mexican ones (Blacktop, Roadworn, Classic Lacquer), you will need to source an AV trem arm. It also doesn't come with monuting screws, but you already have those in the one you're replacing. Not a big deal. The trem lock is important if you're using an alternate tuning or break a string. I purchased an AV trem arm, and it fits perfectly. There are slight variations in the thickness of the chrome plating on the newer Av trem arms. The one I purchased was a little loose in the collet (it wasn't going to fall out, but it didn't stay in place perfectly), however after slightly bending the teeth under the trem plate (not too hard, or you'll risk breaking them), the trem arm stays in place.
I feel like the action of this tremelo is smoother than the one that was on my guitar initially. It's an easy upgrade and one i recommend if you're into dropped-d or -c tunings, or if you risk breaking strings.
