I would say the stock bridge on the american deluxe should do the trick as well. That's probably what I am going for.Can someone comment on the Callaham pop-in arm?
The play on my stock American Standard drives me nuts. I put a bit of masking tape in there just to keep it from moving without me cranking it. It's obviously not a good solution.
Does the Callaham bridge remove play?
I disagree. I only paid $599 for it and the deluxe bridge and shaller tuners will only run about $200. Plus the body is nice and light, the way I like them, and its olympic white, which I want and is not easy to find-not sure they make deluxes in white.for what you're going to spend in time and money, you might as well sell it and buy a deluxe
Ouch. Looks like the Callaham block is the better buy.
However, I like my "dark" strat sound and I'm afraid a solid chunk of steel is going to add undue brightness. Am I being paranoid?
The HSS version of the American Deluxe does still come with the LSR nut; however, I don't think you can get the locking trem like on your Ultra any more.And I prefer LSR nuts - not sure if the Deluxe comes with that these days, but it used to. You DO have to cut up your nut slot a little to fit that though...
Block is 60 bucks and you can use your existing plate and arm. It will still pop-in.Why is the callaham block a better buy than the deluxe bridge? Also, if I replaced the standard block with the callaham block but kept the standard bridge, would I still be able to use a pop in arm?
