  • Country of Manufacture: USA
  • String Spacing: 2-1/16" (2.062" / 52.4mm)
  • Enhanced Vintage, w/ 10-32 Thread
  • Fits Fender Standard Stratocaster (arm required); Classic Player Strat (arm required); Highway 1 (2006 and later)

You cannot use a Standard or Classic Player tremolo arm with this block, you'll need to select a Callaham Virtual Pop-In Arm. You can use the stock arm for a 2006-and-later Highway 1 Strat, though a Callaham virtual pop-in arm is strongly recommended for best results.

All Callaham blocks are made of 1018 cold-rolled steel like the vintage originals, which contributes to the sustain and harmonic content that has made these guitars legendary. Replacing a block made of inferior materials (zinc, leaded steel, sintered steel) with one of Callaham's blocks will get you one step closer to those $30,000 originals. All have a precision-machined top surface that is free of paint to ensure solid metal-to-metal contact with the top plate, for optimal tone.

And all Callaham blocks come with a precision-reamed Delrin insert in the arm hole, allowing the tremolo arm to fit snugly and be free of play, without requiring a spring in the hole, as Fender's threaded blocks do. This gives you the best tremolo feel available, and no worries about losing springs (in case you're unaware of it, new Stratocasters ship with a round label over the arm hole in the tremolo - the label's purpose is to prevent the tiny spring from falling out and being lost). With Callaham's blocks, the need for a spring is eliminated.

I put one in a USA Peavey Predator along with the steel bridge saddles. I retained the four hole original bridge plate.

Callaham Enhanced MX Block

I replaced the zinc block on my 2016 mx strat and the difference was incredible! The sounds changed to holy grail status!!!! I didnt expect that much of a change with the upgrades made already, but definitely this is the final one. I hardtail with 5 vintage springs, highwood hardened steel saddles, and tusq xl nut, and now I have the greatest sounding strat I've ever owned or played! If you are considering a upgrade block go with Callaham, it's worth the extra cash to get the very best. Thankyou Tone Shapers for the outstanding service, the best place for guitar parts! Kev.

High quality block

Super high quality block. Very easy to install

Jay Winter (winter_wares)
Perfect Low-Cost Upgrade

This is the absolute best solution to the sloppy arm problem that plagues stratocaster floating trems. Plus, the block is cleanly milled and has a nice heavy mass to it. Perfect!
