    Default Just so everybody knows....

    The big brass block w/ the required screws from floydupgrades.com DOES NOT fit the ping "Official Floyd Rose" that comes on Mexican strats and such.

    I'll be e-mailing Floydupgrades.com to let them know. He wasn't sure when I e-mailed and asked...

    I didn't realize the MIM strats came with Ping Floyds.
    Are they the same trems as shown here? ... http://www.axcessories.com

    And what wouldn't "fit"?
    The holes didn't line up?

    Just curious.

    Those look like the same floyds.

    MIM strats with Floyds used to come with the real cheapie imitation Floyds. For a while they came with these Ping Floyds, and I believe they just discontinued to the locking trem strat.

    T holes for the block line up. First problem was that the holes to screw the plate to the block weren't big enough. They were just slightly too small, so I opened the center hole up a bit to try it out, and realized that the head of the screws required for the big block were too big. They weren't flush with the base plate, meaning the saddles would be pushed up. Even if you could get the saddles in there, you'd kill all your room for fine tuning.

    So I guess if you went to home depot and found some screws with a smaller head it'd work out....How did I not realize that before?

    I bought several of the same big blocks at one point to use on my Wolfgangs. (Those trems, I'm 99% sure, are also made by Ping, although they are different than the "Official Floyd Rose" Pings.) Same deal--they don't fit. So far only Kyle, Divebomb, has made one that fits the Peavey Wolfgang Ping trem.
