    Hi all,

    I've just received my Wilkinson 5+1 strat vintage style tremolo and it's so-called steel block is much lighter than the real Fender 57/62 one. So I'm asking myself : is it made with steel please ? Or it's just a cheap piece of metal that you can find in numerous made in Korea guitars ?

    Many thanks.

    Oh,,,that's horrible if they advertised the bridge as a steel block. You should get your money back.
