    I'm thinking this is a pot metal block, but the rest of it seems decent. It is silvery metal, has a dull thud when struck with metal, and isn't magnetic. I'm thinking the only replacement block that fits is the Killer Guitar Components one - mine isn't labeled TRS 101, but seems to look like one. Can you confirm that its pot metal, and if you've upgraded yours give me some feedback on that please.

    Well, I ordered the KGC block a couple of months ago, still waiting. I've called a couple of times, but they never answer. Guess I'll email some, but starting to wonder...

    I have one. It's probably zinc. I just use five springs and float it. I don't use the tremolo arm. I just treat it like a hard tail.
