Does anyone make a replacement steel block for the Gotoh 510?

I've seen the KGP brass block online but I'm looking for a replacement steel block for my Gotoh 510. No one will sell one separately and no one seems to make one from what I've seen. Any ideas?

Gotoh does. I order mine with the steel block. Try Allparts.

I went through the same search about a year ago and came up with nothing sorry to say. Seems the only option is to buy an entire replacement 510 unit with the steel block. I don't know why Gotoh doesn't offer the blocks as a separate item?

Well that's frustrating. I would consider the Killer Guitar Components brass block but they dont actually make them themselves and dont keep them in stock so placing an order means a 2 month wait. Not gonna happen.

And dont get me started with the guy selling a stock steel block on eBay for nearly the whole cost of the trem...

What axe is this for?

I just got a Grosh Electrajet Custom, love the fact it has a six screw trem, was shocked and a little bummed to see a small zinc block attached to it though. Apparantly Don Grosh prefer's that combo, but i was gonna try to see if I could throw a steel block in it just for kicks...

I ordered a couple blocks from KGC and it never took more than a couple weeks.

If you want to replace the trem with the Gotoh 510 steel block look at buying direct from Gotoh Japan. They have stores which do international orders.

This is where I have got my Gotoh parts

If you're able to find a steel block for it let us know if you like the tone better.

At a quick glance I saw no blocks, just the option of buying a bridge with it. Gonna email them though. Thanks for the link!

Just heard back from them, they dont sell blocks separately.
