    Default Is this a brass block ?


    Freeze frame @ 7:24 or 7:25 and please tell me if anyone sees a brass block on this Stealth !!! If this is not a big brass block--it appears to be a block larger than the stock FR 37mm !!!
    I am an Electrician and a guitar player not a computer magician !
    If someone could freeze and zoom on several of these frames it would be greatly appreciated !!!
    Thanx man

    Judging by the light on the block, the dark strip appears to be the thickness of the stock trem block:



    The Wolfgang trem body route is huge!

    I think it is the a brass block. Not the big one, but maybe the 34mm or a 37mm one. Alot of the higher end floyd rose tremolos can be ordered with any block you want.
    I wonder why he doesn't use the titanium floyd rose..

    Looks stock to me too.

    I don't think the trem cavity is really that big. It looks like the plate is probably flush with the body, so the full outline of the plate is slightly routed into the body and left unpainted. Anybody with a USA Wolfgang that can confirm?

    You nailed it McFly - that's how the rear cavity is done on the standard - mounted flush with the routed area unpainted.

    Jimi posted a pic of the trem cavity on his special...you could fit a couch & a flat screen TV behind the trem block! - ha-ha! The trem cover lip does make it look a lot larger!

    Yeah, the cover makes it look bigger because of the black back... Although, a larger trem route provides extra room for intense divebombing...

    At 4:34, you can see another view of the FR block. Something just seems different about it to me. Something about the tension spring angle makes me think the block is slightly longer than the stock block.
    I have the original block (37mm) that came on the 2009 USA Wolf and a standard 37mm big brass block that came from FU Upgrades. Both of these blocks are 5 holes blocks--not the longer ones that cover the trem bar nut.
    Also, his trem block just seems slighlty thicker than the stock block but not as thick as the big brass block. Maybe I am still tripping from the 80's and 90's.
    Would someone please freeze and post the screen shots around the 4:34 area.
    Thanx fellow EVH fans !!!
