Thanks, guys. When I ordered my Gotoh Strat tremolo from Warmoth, I assumed that it would have a steel block. Apparently, it is zinc. I guess the price should have told me that.
My hope was to tame the brightness on my ash body/one-piece maple neck Strat.
Do you think that staying with my Callaham block and switching to the Gotoh plate and saddles might create a nice balance? If the Callaham steel block is supposed to be among the most authentic out there, then I'd like to keep it in the game.
