Routing for a Strat-style tremolo

tremolo rout

"Universal" routing for most Strat-style tremolos (view from top). Fit your tremolo so that the saddles are centered on the neck center line and mark the centers of the pivot-stud holes or pivot-screw holes on this line.

Your tremolo may be different. Always double-check the measurements given!
