I was looking to replace the bridge in my 2001 MIM strat and decided to check the Wilkinson.
I had to slightly adjust the holes and get it to fit right. After the upgrade is done I was amazed! The guitar sounds great! I could lower the action with no buzz, easy to intonate and adjust saddle height, using the tremolo is now great fun without losing the tune (replaced also tuners with Sperzel Trim-Lok very good combo). Arrived quicker than I expected.

Fantastic replacement bridge

My old Wilkinson bridge had a breakage (it was 15+ years old)--the new one fit right in, looks even more solid, and the trem arm now screws in unlike the old one. Fantastic.

Sturdy tremolo

Awesome Trem but...

I purchased 2 of these and had to slightly rout the cavity on both a 1990 Strat Plus and 1999 Am Std to accommodate the block and get it to fit right. Its's wider by 1/16". The studs do line up perfectly. Maybe later models have slightly larger cavity? Despite this, well worth the upgrade! You can rest your hand on the bridge when you play with no more allen screws digging into your hand. Easy to intonate and adjust saddle height. The bar is beefier more like a FR and stays in tune!

Great service, fast shipping and great unit!

This is by far the best Tremolo I have ever used. Looks great and performs great as well. Stays in tune better than any of my Fender Trems!!

Sweet trem!

1st tremolo I've put in one of my builds, & I had to spend a little time getting it right. One email to the StewMac tech support guys, & the clouds were lifted. These are as "true" as the Floyd Rose stuff, & you don't have to mess with the locking nut. The guitar holds it's tuning, and returns to tuning, even after some pretty radical dive-bombs, and yanks on the bar. Comes with all the tools for setup & adjustments..

NIce Bridge!

I installed the bridge in my mim stratocaster deluxe with excellent results. Increases sustain and really feels like a real upgrade. Maybe it was a mistake mie in the correct choice of the bridge as should have a 6-bolt, but really wanted a two floating point. I look cosmetically not have expected perfection as strings sound much more power in the sustain ... I'm very happy with the purchase and the visual with a sound so amazing is negligible ... One of the best buys and upgrades that fact in one of my guitars. Greetings and thanks stewmac .. do more business soon ...

Tone !! Sustain !! Value !! Worth the money !

I'm usually too lazy or not impressed enough to bother writing a review but I had to review this trem. I purchased this on Memorial Day and it arrived Thursday. I put it in my 2008 American Standard Strat and Whoa Nelly ! The difference in the sustain is incredible and the tone is improved also. Here's the kicker, I feel the notes vibrating more on my LEFT hand. The energy transfer amazed me. I play guitar for a living so I'm very particular about tone (obviously). I wanted a Wilkinson because I wanted a dual fulcrum trem for my strat. I checked out Wilkinson trems on eBay for about half the money but they weren't Gotoh. Stew Mac doesn't sell junk so I figured I'd take the risk. I am beyond pleased. This is a great upgrade. I'm planning on buying another one for a project guitar. Thanks Stew Mac. This is wonderful.
