    Not the most extreme mod I've ever done but a didn't like the trem bar on the Les Trem... so I cut an old Strat handle to fit:

    Think it looks far more in keeping with the guitar

    Pretty well if you pull e the bar up and back it folds reasonably flush with the bridge.

    Love the Les Trems. Did it fit perfectly on, no issues?

    Was a bit tight, at first I thought it wasn't going to line up - had to thread both bolts then tighten it down.
