    Control Knobs are offered in polished or matte finishes for both Aluminum and Brass, while supply last. We have discontinued our Brass line of RS parts. As soon as stock runs out we will no longer off brass parts.


    The new 2020 RS Parts line has several new improvements in design and function. (see "Product Info" for more details)



      (1) 400 Series "Enhanced" RS Roller Bridge Assembly

         Our most popular, "Enhanced" Roller Bridge design, in combination with our unique 2pc. Roller & Anvil design, all but eliminates the loss of a Roller in case of a string break.

         The Bridge Block's intonation grooves are precision machined so that the Anvil "presses" into the groove, locking the Roller in place to spin freely. The Roller slips over the 1mm dia. x 9mm Anvil with only 0.05mm clearance per side insuring the Roller spins stable and with as little friction as possible.

         This one-of-a-kind design provides the smoothest movement possible on the market.

      String Spacing:

      ~~~~10.16mm [.400"] string spacing~~~

      ~~~50.80mm [2.00"] E-e string spacing~~~

      Installation Shims: (1) 1.5mm Tufnol Base Shim, (1) 1.5mm Brass Shim

      Extra Shims: (1) 1.0mm Brass Shim, (1) 0.5mm Brass Shim

      Roller Options

         Option #1: (4) Low-E and (5) High-E, 2pc. Rollers & Anvils

         Option #2: (4) Low-E and (5) High-E 1pc. Rollers

      (1) 400 Series "Traditional" 6-String Tremolo

         Choose whether you want your Rocker machined from Stainless or Mild-Steel, both available Polished or with a Matte-Finish.

         Perhaps the biggest improvement to our Tremolo Assemby, is our very own, 7-Coil, Flat-Ground Springs. We found our own manufacturer locally who is now making our Springs to the exact specifications of the Vanel Springs that were, until now, available only in France. These Springs have been proclaimed by several who have held Brian's RS, that they feel just like the real deal. You won't believe how good these feel!!!

         Our Stainless-Steel Tremolo Arm comes bent to exact dimensions and silver-soldered into a solid Brass Swivel that has been precision reamed to fit the Arm Post perfectly.

         We offer two types of Arm Post. Both our own "one-piece" design and the traditional "two-piece" design.

      (2) "Traditional" RS Control Knobs

         Our Control Knobs are 2nd only to Brian's actual Knobs...I know because we machined Brian's replacement Knobs. The only difference is Knurl, which is slightly wider, and the grub screw. Brian's is a M3 grub screw and ours is a 4-40. All other dimensions are accurate to the original.

         Each Set includes a 0.50 Allen wrench and our exclusive "Peel-n-Stick" Locator Label...the same Label Brian currently is using.

      (2) "Traditional" RS Strap Buttons

         Just like the original, our Strap Buttons are machined from solid  Brass and then Nickel-Plated with mtg. screws.

         We now include "Red" Fiber-Washers for between the Strap Buttons and body to protect the finish, and now, genuine "Grolsch" Rubber Gaskets, just like Brian uses, as Strap Locks at no extra charge.

      (1) "Cyber Shop" Pickbox

         When you buy one of our "Complete" Builds we include our very own PickBox and "Sixpence"...while supplies last.

         They go fast so if we are out of stock at the time of your order, there may be a slight delay while we wait to re-stock.


      The mission of "RS Custom Machine" is to be a customer-oriented company providing world-class quality, delivery and service of value-added design & machined products across the entertainment, industrial, automotive, telecommunication, aerospace, medical and private sector markets.
