Hiya. Posting here because Stratty folk know a thing or two about trem bridges. I have a Westone Spectrum, a Matsumoko guitar from the 80s. Is it a Strat? Kind of. But not really. It's HH configuration, with maple body and neck and a 2 point trem bridge that's based on the Fender Strat bridge but again different. The neck is wonderful. I like the bridge bucker and I've upgraded the neck pickup to a rod magnet P90 style in HB size. Overall the sound is good but on the thin side with a high end brittleness that's hard to get rid of. This is also clearly audible in the unplugged sound. On the positive side the guitar sounds very clear, and the bass notes are tight and also super clear. This lends itself to fingerpicking and jangly sounds. Pretty sure the maple body is mainly responsible for this, but the trem block is a puny zinc block. Today I bought a Hipshot 6 point trem bridge in a close out sale. I'm thinking a solid steel bridge might help give the guitar a more balanced sound, but also there's no getting away from all that maple. What do you guys think? I can still change my mind and use the Hipshot in another guitar.
