Gotoh 1088 with stripped threads in the block. repair?


Hey All. I have a Gotoh 1088 in a '96 Tom Anderson Drop Top Classic.

Anyway... I stripped the threads in the block where the tremolo arm screws in. Should I re-tap or should I get a new block? Perhaps even a whole new bridge? Is there a bridge that sounds better that won't require drastic modification?
Can you even get a replacement block for the 1088 anymore?

(BTW, My favorite bridge is a Gotoh 510 with Raw Vintage saddles which is on a different guitar, but I don't have a problem with the 1088 on this guitar... except the stripped threads)
