    I expect you mean a "vibrato."

    Not your mistake. It was Leo's.

    (Tremolo means a wavering of volume, vibrato a wavering of pitch.)

    That looks like a pretty standard Fender Strat type unit. But whether it is interchangeable is the question.

    Maybe if you provide close up pix -- front and back (with the unit exposed) and some measurements folks here can make specific recommendations.

    If it is "standard" than, maybe, this. It is what I used to upgrade the unit on my Affinity Strat.

    Addenda -- No. Your's in a two point, this is a six.

    Don, Fender (or sweetwater or GC) will not sell you a replacement “vibrato” arm. Everyone has called it a tremolo arm for 70 years. It will be ok.

    That’s why I refer to them as “TremLeo’s”... no one’s ever picked up on it. :confused:

    Is it a 2 point like that pic? Measure the 2 studs, center to center.....should be like 56mm or 63mm.....let us know....THEN we can suggest a trem. Otherwise, it's a waste of time without the right information from you.

    I do not have anything to measure mm but if you can figure this out, it was close to 6 centimeters, close to 2 1/2 inches.

    63mm spacing then - that really limits what you can buy......it's the same spacing as the Squier Standard Strat 2 point trem.....

    63mm stud spacing would be perfect for Wilkinson WVS 50k.
    Best of luck

    Those are great trem bridges! I had one on mine. Paired with locking tuners and graphite impregnated nut, it took all my abuse and go back to tune always.

    Also check out Sung IL Bs108 which has roller saddles. I have a standard just like my avatar and it dropped in with no hassle at all. Didn't even have to change the studs.
    Can be found in chrome, black or gold if that's your thing.
