Block is manufactured in the same manner as all of Callaham’s other blocks. Using the finest USA cold-rolled steel and with our proprietary zero-clearance bushing, to give perfect arm fitment and support.
Steel is the only material that should be used for the block – but not just any steel – the steel used can not contain any lead. Lead dampens the frequency response and reduces both sustain and clarity.
If you have an import guitar, your block is more than likely zinc (pot metal). Zinc kills both sustain and clarity and your sound. If you have a U.S. made guitar, you may have a steel block but it is either a hot rolled leaded steel, or in the case of the American Standard bridges, a soft cast steel block.Please see the Callaham Block Details page for detailed information on the replacement block for your bridge and why Callaham blocks are the single best improvement you can make to your guitar.
If you are requiring a matching Callaham trem arm, be sure to choose the short thread from the drop down menu.
