Squeaky Trem Bar

Trem bar noise is typically one of three things,

1. There is no grease left on the tip of the bar [or the shaft if you like a bar with loose bushings] and the lock spring is squeaking in it's detent. Put a little grease in the detent on the bar, insert, and spin it around a few times.

2. It's not the bar but the arm holder which is loose. It has a tendency to squeak quite loud when it turns. Easy to check by watching the arm holder while you spin the bar.

3. The spring that holds the bar in the holder is cocked sideways or otherwise jammed at the wrong angle. Sometimes just loosening the spring screw and re-positioning it will clear the noise. Other times if it's bent you'll need to remove it and bend it so that the tip enters the holder straight on.
