      Hi CeltRocka, what is the best way to order trem blocks from you? I want to replace two, for a Mex and a MIJ. It would be great to get handmade in Wales ones!

      Hi. Do you sell full Strat bridges or just blocks? Looking to replace the bridge on my Tokai which seems to be 2 1/16th spacing, which doesn’t leave me with many traditional looking alternatives; seems to be only Fender MIM or Callaham.

        Thanks. Do you do a block/arm pair for 2 1/16th “ blocks? If so, how much? Is there a particular bridge you would recommend?

        There are many variations of blocks with 2-1/16" spacing depending on what bridge plate is used. The MIM is good enough [ its chrome plated steel] the Callaham has maybe a better finish but more expensive

        MIM plate and saddles [£25/$30]
        Callaham plate only[£40/$50]

      Hi CeltRocka, trem block needed for a (1994-1995) MIJ Squier.
      -It has MDF body,
      -import type bridge as opposed to USA or MIM.
      - body size is 40mm,
      - block is approx. 3mm shorter will be needed. The
      - tremolo arm threads will be more in line with strings than the block
      mounting screws.
      Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
      Thanks
      Roy

      Hi CeltRocka,

      If you're still making trem blocks, I'd like to get a steel one for an Indo Squier Standard - with the 2-point trem. Please let me know if you have any available or will be making another run in the near future. Thx!

      Greetings CeltRocka, can you please help me with some information?
      I am having a custom arm made for my tremolo, and its creator has confirmed he can make me the special arm if he has the diameter/thread specs. However, I am confused by the various denotations used (e.g. XX-XXUNF format or Xmm-X format, etc). Can you explain to me what the numbers mean in the different formats?

      Hi, I've just bought an affinity series 1996 s
      Squire strat. I'm looking to replace the block and bridge with a much better upgrade. Ive measured the bridge and guitar as guitar width 1 3/4" thick and bridge as string spacing 2 1/16" and mounting spacing 2 1/16" following the Callahan site measurements. Are you able and still producing the rolled steel blocks cheers lee

      Hey - I have been refinishing a Squier Affinity Strat 2005, want to upgrade block but the body is too thin for standard upgrades and found you can make steel blocks the correct shorter depth. It'd be great to get one made that would fit the bridge plate, and the smaller cavity of the body, so no body work needs to be done, I've read this is a common problem. Does this sound possible?
      Cheers, Dan
      1. Dansullyg
        Dansullyg
        To clarify - the issues are i) thin body ii) thin cavity iii) fits bridge plate, can send measurements if needed. I'm going to basically deck the trem any way, but want to add some mass for sustain. Look forward to hearing back - pm me or w/e if you prefer, I'm new to this ha!
