Guys,
Does PRS or the aftermarket offer replacement and or upgraded trem blocks. I have a 1995 USA trem that appears to have a smaller and not brass block. It sounds thinner than my other USA CE trems . I have numerous years from 1988 to 2007.
Thanks in advance!!

I ordered a brass block from FU tone long with brass screws, claw, and noiseless springs. Started the upgrade and pulled the term apart. And saw it was a 1 piece milacon unit. Any ideas about what it is made of?
I plan to install the brass block on another guitar later.

What are noiseless springs???

Does brass claw make a difference?

Does the Mann bridge make that much of a difference in the tone?

To answer the question for real, I wouldn't replace the trem on a USA PRS and expect a significant difference in tone even with the one piece option.

It'll be nuanced at best.
