Re: Edge blocks size
Just wanted to bring this one back up because I found something interesting. I had been using a trem with a short "HS" block in my '87 540P and it had been working fine. I've had the guitar apart having the frets worked on and during that time, I scored a Backstop for the guitar.
Well I was putting it back together today and just couldn't get the tuning to stabilize. I finally realized that the middle spring was dragging on the Backstop. The sustain block is just way too short with the Backstop installed. So I need to find a longer block. I have roughly 8 mm to play with.
The HS block is 30 mm. Can anyone give me the measurement of the S and the really long block?
