thanks for the heads up, but its an easy fix. I'll just have to grab a 1/4 in Maple dowel, bore out the original holes and glue pieces of the dowel in their place. That makes for an awesome reinforcement for something like that and it you do it right the bridge hides the maple so you don't have to refinish the guitar. But it might me kind of cool to riddle it with holes and fill the holes with dowels. might look cool with that kind of polka dot thing going on...lol. But I ahve seen what you are talking about with the wood joint. That generally happens with people who do alot of Trem work, not so much when you don't play with the trem very often. I use it rarely so I shouldn't have a problem, but still the body is Paulownia so I may just do the Maple dowel to be safe. that is the best fix if you want to keep the vintage trem though.
