Traditional strat bridge replacements....

I have a 95 MIM strat that I am going to be upgrading heavily. It is currently stock. I cant stand the traditional strat bridge and am looking for suggestions for a replacement. I would prefer something that is a direct swap, if there is such a thing out there.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I've installed quite a few of these on customer guitars and they are solid as a rock. You should check into them.

Just remember when shopping around that MIM and MIA strat bridges have different dimensions, so what would be a direct swap for one most likely won't be for the other.

Also, when looking into a new trem, it'd be a good idea to look for a nice big sustain block to go with it. Some come with them, some don't.

Bump for interest. I plan on upgrading my '98 MIM strat and would like to see some options.
