Can I convert my pop-in arm trem to a screw-in arm trem by changing the block?

    I have this trem from GFS: http://http://www.guitarfetish.com/Wilkinson-Vintage-Tremolo-Pop-In-Arm-with-Block_p_897.html#

    Can't stand the pop-in arm and I want to replace it with a screw in one. Can this be accomplished by changing the block to a block that accommodates a screw in arm? Or would I have to replace the baseplate as well (in which case I'd just buy a new unit)?

    Also, does anyone know the string spacing on the model that I linked to? I remember it being something other than 2 7/32 but I'm not sure...

    Thanks.

    I believe so, if you get the right one. Call them up and ask them. Jay or Dave will tell you for sure.

    Yes...start here to find the measurements for your guitar. Their replacements are some of the most expensive but they are top of the line.
