Callaham Tremolo Blocks & Trem Arms

Callaham Steel Trem Blocks

Made to original specifications by Callaham Guitars, these tremolo blocks are precision-made in the United States. Callaham trem blocks are made from heavy, cold rolled steel and weigh a full 10oz (280g), producing incredible sustain, note clarity and response. The string ball ends seat just inside the trem block, as opposed to seating halfway up, which also increases sustain and tone transfer while minimizing the risk of a broken string becoming lodged in the block.

Made in the USA.

  • Fender® Stratocasters® made from 1954 to 1969

Made to Pre-CBS original specifications by Callaham Guitars, these tremolo blocks are precision-made in the United States and are exact replicas of the tremolo blocks used in the original 50's Stratocasters®.
