    Actually the blocks I have are the same as the ones from FloydUpgrades.com and not the excessively large ones from ebay. I just installed and tested the brass block on the Custom Shop Yellow Sand that I bought off ihave27frets (the one that will soon belong to Wes here), and it's still got the full amount of up pull.

    I find a lot of the ones sold on ebay have the holes drilled too close to the middle. It pushes one side of the block too far towards the body so you lose some of that uppull. The ones I sell have holes that are more or less in the same place the stock blocks do and don't have that problem.

    Which Horus are you getting? You will really love her. I can't wait to try my new Cap with the block.

    Hey Budd, would you be doing a packaged deal for both the trem block and the Arming Adjuster together?

    Sure am. You just gotta know which size block you need. The block length is engraved into the side of the trem block.
