OK so to follow up on what Dave said in the Gotoh Floyd thread. What's the general consensus with floydupgrade's brass blocks, and the others I'm seeing on EBay (including one for the Wilkinson VS100).
An essential upgrade?
I've never got to do a direct " replace block and restring and go" a/b on them before, but I've heard a few guitars with the upgrade before and after over longer periods of time ( including an rg270, my first axe which my brother upgraded after I gave it to him), and while the old tone wasn't necessarily fresh in my head, it was better with the new block than I remembered it being before. I'm gonna try and snag the huge 849473865418mm one with the L on it to try on the chattel, so I can chime in more then
