Hi all,

I have a 1985 325V59 which I love. Lately the tremelo arm keeps coming loose.

I have tightened both nuts and the screw. Stays tight for about 10 minutes of use the hangs freely and really wobbly like it is about to fall off. I also see the nuts turning when rotating the arm.

Hopefully after 30 years it just needs new nuts or some locktite.

Not sure I want to use locktite but se it in a lot of forums for this issue with the Bigsby B5. Any suggestions would be awesome. Thanks!
