I bought the Wilkenson trem found here:http://store.guitarfetish.com/wivitrpoarst.html and it replaces the tek glide perfectly. The string spacing even matches. The arm is a pop in arm, not a screw in type. Much better imo. I notice that the tone of the guitar is a little brighter with the steel trem. The original is brass, I believe. Sustain is improved also because of the solid steel block. I also bought stainless steel saddles found here:http://store.guitarfetish.com/upststsafitr.html. They also fit well but I had to use the screws from the saddles on the new trem because they were a little shorter and worked better when intonating. The trems also come in gold and black too, but I got chrome to match my tuners. Now for the pics.

...yet another guitar for me to hunt - X110, yes? My wife loves it when I browse these forums and point out guitars I'd like, "It's different to the ones I have now because of the......!" Actually, I'm sure you are all familiar with the rolling eyes and exaggerated sighs from the distaff side, eh!! In lovely nick, too. I'd really like one of these single p'up Matts, An Avenger 310 or the Westone equivalent of this beauty - simple in their beauty, IMHO!! :)
