Scouting the forum for a tremolo block for my '73 Strat clone, ideally with an original arm. Threads are stripped on mine, likely because I never found an arm with the right fit -- I just got close and made up the difference with plumber's tape.

This block is short (35mm?) with a 50mm string spread. No luck in the aftermarket, as you might expect. Hoping to find something I can bolt right on. I gig this guitar pretty regularly, and want to avoid altering the tone/playfeel with a different bridge or steel block.

Any parts/prices, referrals, or advice would be greatly appreciated -- I can provide more measurements or photos, if needed.

If you cant find a block, you may be able to drill the hole out and put a threaded collet in of the right size.
