Trem plate is thin..big block is pot metal but all in all its not half bad... i replaced the saddles with roller saddles and im satisfied with the sustain. But i keep my trem slammed to the deck for more contact. But im happy with how it plays
This unit was supposed to replace a chrome tremolo on an existing guitar. The guitar has "vintage" mounting holes with 2 1/16" spacing (10.5mm between each.) This unit has 2 1/8" screw spacing (10.8mm between each). Although the posting said that, I thought it was a typo; it wasn't. The mounting trem holes did not line up with the guitar body holes. I was not going to do a "plug and redrill" on the guitar body, so this tremolo unit ended up in the parts drawer. I did, however, use its nice big and heavy block on an "import" replacement unit with the correct spacing, so it was not a complete waste. Fender-based guitars can drive you crazy with their assortment of tremolo mounting hole spacings.
This is a nice upgrade for an inexpensive or build guitar. The main improvement is the heavy full sized block. I chose to further upgrade mine with roller saddles. The stock saddles should be adequate though. The fit of the tremelo bar is a bit snug and the bar itself is a little short but workable. The increase in sustain because of the larger block is noticeable. Can't advise to the durability of the finish (I chose black) but I'm pretty sure it's powder coated and should hold up decently. The fit is good but it may depend on the actual make of your guitar. Good product for the price.
I bought this to replace the stock Squier strat trem system. The block is much bigger and has helped with sustain on the guitar. It is a little longer so the back cover doesn’t fit as well. That is still a good trade off to me
I wanted a black bridge with a big block. This bridge has that.. The saddle riser screws are short, the trem arm is a push in model which never fully engages. It just kinda gets stuck in the socket It doesn't spin. It's pretty much crap.
Like the sleek black tone. It was slightly angled too much when mounting. Nothing a vise and some pressure couldn't fix. I to like the pop in trem bar. And the trem block is heavy duty and has some weight- though not brass.
