    Mike McCready's custom shop

    15k???!lol Looks like any other harder relic CS out there. They are now making everyone's old guitar put a "signature" add "iconic" to it and sell it for a bit higher price than regular cs or masterbuilt.

    What is the best wood for Stratocaster guitars?

    Spruce, ebony and only matters on classical/flamenco guitars. On electric...only what I heard that they were made of..alder, ash, mahogany....even though I wouldn't tell any difference in tone, maybe only in how the grain looks...on sunbursts.

    Trem Blocks

    If it's tiny block like MIM's before 2006 upgrade, then it brings more weight to the guitar.And it might improve sustain a bit. On the other hand, it might not. Changing full size zinc with brass, won't make any bigger difference on electric guitar.
