Upgrade Your tone!
popular "Squier Affinity" Strat style guitars use very thin bodies with
ridiculously lightweight, "flimsy" tremolos. For years we've been
upgrading these by swapping out the tiny, lightweight "Pot Metal" trem
block with a "Made in Mexico" style block, which sorta fits, but they
always hangs out the back of the guitar.
gone ahead and made up very solid cast and machined SOLID Cold Rolled Steel MIM style blocks
that DO FIT these guitars! These add mass, tone and sustain. Steel gives you a very pronounced midrange and treble, with a very percussive tone and long,
effortless sustain. These use the 10/32 style vintage trem arm, which is
what you will find on most Affinity trems. If you have one of the
models with the larger 6mm arm we do sell replacements.
These are a VERY short 35mm, the exact height of the Affinity block, but feature 5x the metal and mass!
These come as pictured with 3 new chrome mounting screws.
*This block will not fit the MIM Players series 2 Point Trems.
