Very meticulous steps including a "block" of some kind on the bridge? You insisted it was still 100% pure Stratocaster, just better stronger faster.
Oh, OK - I wasn't sure what you were talking about, but I get it now.
BTW, I was plugging a company that makes cold-rolled steel replacement trem blocks for Stratocasters:
Fender used steel blocks in the early years, but they started using crappy pot metal for the blocks when they went down the mass production road.
