Wilkinson® WVCCR guitar tremolo system
Wilkinson® WVCCR guitar tremolo system staggers the string holes in the sustain block allowing the strings to follow the natural intonation line of the bent steel saddles giving unrivaled tuning stability. Also available now with steel block and in a distressed / aged version.

Wilkinson WVC Tremolo System - The design is so simple and eminently usable it is a challenge to improve on it, but improve it we did! Faithfully reproducing the size and weight of the original, this is a direct retro-fit for the "real thing" but with the added benefit of a push-in vibrato arm (rather than the troublesome original screw-in type). We also staggered the string holes in the sustain block allowing the strings to follow the natural intonation line of the saddles, keeping the strings' "angle of attack" over the saddle's intonation point more consistent, eliminating annoying string "hang-up" giving unrivalled tuning stability. Completing the assembly are the bent steel saddles built from the same gauge steel as the originals to retain the "vintage sparkle" that this bridge has become famous for.
