    I need some help here. I've got a Warmoth strat body that has the standard 6 hole trem mounting scheme, and I need a trem with 2 1/8th string spacing. Steel trem block is preferred.

    What will do the job, and where can I buy one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't those 2 have the 2-7/32" spacing though?

    Is there an advantage of the six screw bridge over the two post?

    From a technical standpoint, some folks think that it contributes to better sustain since there are 6 contact points to the body rather than 2.

    Guys, about the Wilkinson trem, I bought one and was not terribly impressed with it. The actual bridge is killer, but the steel block was not machined perfectly flat on the side that screws into the bridgeplate. I ended up taking care of this issue myself. I guess for the price it is pretty decent.

    If only Calaham would make one with a slightly narrower string spacing. I tried talking to them about it but they were more or less total assholes to me. Too bad, nice products.
