Looking for a Moseley tremolo system

Postby halfblank » Tue Mar 17, 2015 10:24 am

Anyone have one laying around? Haha. Or know where I can get one? I'm still working on my '66 Mark V project. It's coming along slowly but surely. I'll post pics when I'm done with it. Thanks guys.

Check with Bob Shade, or eBay sells a knockoff, if you are on a budget.
Or if you feel so inclined, do like Danny and myself, we make ours from scratch. I took a lesson on Danny's. His is superb. Mine O.K. Here is photo of mine it's not completely done, but mostly done with simple hand tools and a drill press.

That's great Dan! I would love to learn to make my own. I do not have a drill press, though. I saw the knock offs on ebay but according to the seller, the screw holes don't match up with vintage bodies. I'm working with a '66 body with existing screw holes. I saw Ed Roman has new ones but they are $490. I'm not opposed to paying that much but I'd prefer it to be an original if I'm gonna spend that much.

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for one myself for my guitar build. In fact i could just copy what the OP wrote. Any tips? New info? Etc?

Thanks!

You basically have three options. Bob Shade, build your own, or eBay.
If you want a good reproduction see Bob.

The ones available on eBay work perfectly well. Be happy to do a screen share to prove it. :D
