Anyone have troubles with the tremelo?
« on: September 10, 2015, 06:40:00 AM »
So bummed! Last night at rehearsal, I noticed that the tremolo arm on my pdf105 felt a little loose. Upon examination, I found that half of the plastic ring that surrounds the hole where the tremolo arm is inserted had broken off and the other piece fell off in my hand. Because of this, the arm no longer wants to stay in place. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, what was your fix ?

Thanks!
Jimmy

Happens sometimes.
Fix: Get a new insert from Parker.

Very.  They will send you a new insert - you might have to pay for that.  You just pop the old one out and push a new one in.  Takes about 1 minute or 2.
Pushing the old insert out is easiest done from the bottom of the bridge.  Remove the backplate and the insert is easy to see.
