Trusting Tom

American Vintage and custom milled trem blocks

Mad scientist, guitarist and guitar-tech extraordinaire Sam Hubbell had heard from his friend Tom, a gent who likes to upgrade Mexican-made Strats with higher-end American parts, that alignment is an issue between the American Vintage trem block and the original bridge. No worries, though, he knows a guy who custom mills trem blocks for just this purpose. Sam, trusting his friend Tom, duly acquired the custom part. This picture shows the American Vintage trem block and the custom milled trem block side-by-side. Problem solved and off we go.

Or so we thought...
