This is the all BRASS version of the Wilkinson 5+1 Trem System. Note, this was produced by Wilkinson in Korea, but it is NOT stamped as Wilkinson.
Wilkinson has done it again, improving the design on a classic. Not since its' introduction back in 1954 have so many new appointments been made to the standard vintage tremolo.
The Wilkinson WV6 features start with a vintage correct steel baseplate and add to it 5 elongated knife-edge holes. The elongated holes eliminate binding on the screw. The 6th hole is traditional, keeping the bridge positioned properly. This ingenious design provides a smooth return-to-zero, getting-back-in-tune functionality.
Specially designed brass saddles ,staggered string hole block pattern - this produces a consistent angle over the saddles and increases tuning stability.
Now everything has the same saddle to ball length. Intonation is a breeze! Full Size Block - not the tapered slimmed down model.
Increased sustain lets your notes ring through. Pop in arm - features a tension adjustment; let the arm swing or keep it stiff - either way there is no "wobble" in the arm.
These are spaced to fit your U.S. Strat perfectly. If you are installing on a Mexican or Import Strat, redrilling will be required. This item is a one time offer!
