Is it possible to retro fit a tremelo to a JTV-59 ?
by Stueyd on 2013-01-15 04:09:48

I'm loving my JTV-59 but I do miss having a tremelo.

"Why didn't you buy a 69 then?" I hear you cry. Well I tried some 69's and I just thought they were horrible to play whereas the 59 I got is a real beaut.

So... Has anyone out there in Line 6 forum land fitted a trem to their 59?

If so, any recommendations? Any "gotchas" to watch out for?

Or will I be the first person here to try it......?

Don't fancy a Bigsby, but further down the thread there's a link to a thing called a Stetsbar which looks like the business.

Unfortunately they don't have a direct replacement for the wraparound JTV bridge but it sounds like they're up for doing custom conversions.

I'll find out more info and post here if it is possible and I end up going for it.
