    Preferably a beveled block, but not a necessary condition.

    Does Vai's EVO have stock or brass block?

    Haven't posted in a while... I worked on my friends RG and upgraded it with the Brass Big block from FU-Tone (formally Floyd Upgrades) The Brass Block added alot of character and really opened up or you could say added a "Warm" quality to the Ibanez. They can be a little shrill at times...

    I've got the guys at Hantug Guitars (they made the sweet brass and titanium strat bridge for my strat project) looking at making some custom brass and titanium sustain blocks for Edge and Lo Pro Edge bridges. They should be similarly shaped to the stock units, so no issues with dive or pull-up...

    Do any of you own any brass knuckles? I want some, but I can't figure out what kind of trouble I'd be in if I got caught with them. I'd also want some with a nice fist pack, the best one to buy. so any advice is appreciated guys

    I really want to buý a sustain block for my rc7x, i know 7 blocks are available at floyd upgrades but 6's have more options and versions, so can someone confirm if 6 sustain blocks can also fit 7 OFR's? and on the same note, does anyone have a sample or review that compares the different...

    Here is a video i did with Adam from Floyd Upgrades for the Brass Tremolo Stopper. Pretty Cool little mod, it makes your guitar dive only, but in doing so adds more contact to the guitar and lets it resonate more. Check it out. Oh Also even if you float your trem this will make it much easier to...

    I decided to make a brass big block to see how the tone was compared to the standard block. Instead of buying it I figured why not make one? It's for an Ibanez Edge bridge. It's a cool project so here are some pictures so far. I had to use a brass inget because that was the only brass large...

    This is cool, thought I'd let you guys know there is finally a block for the EDGE PRO 7. The Edge blocks fit in the Edge 7s but there wasnt one for the PRO 7 which you guys know is on almost all the 7strings made today, so if u have a recent ibanez 7 (like a 1527) you can upgrade the block, I...

    I have some brass saddles and screws that were black at one time and the started to chip. I have used some fine steel wool and made them all brass and smooth again. Is there some sort of paint I can either spray or apply that would stick and look good? I know the black is probably a coating...

    Place I got my last one seems to be no longer in business. Given that pretty much everyone making after market Ibanez parts seems to be a thief and a rip-off artist, anyone know a reliable source for these?

    Ok, so, all y'all who are familiar with the ZR know the deal here with the flaws on it. First flaw - Tremolo arm holder is weak and does not hold up to heavy use. Solutions - Manufacture a replacement holder, or buy a floyd rose arm and holder and replace it. My choice - I replaced it with an...

    So Im hearing a lot of rave reviews from players that have a brass block instead of steel. I had brass on my PRS and EBMM JP and the harmonics/sustain and resonance were insane! But my Strat or any other guitar with a steel block wasn't quite there. Back in Feb I got my EBMM Silhouette that has...
