When you say bridge piece do you mean the saddles, the block, or the entire tremolo? You might get a little more sustain and some added brightness with stainless saddles, and you'd add a smidge more weight if you went stainless with the block or the entire trem. I'd be tempted to stick with the original if you're going to block it--the only upgrade that would interest me might be to go with a Callaham replacement trem with a pop-in arm, which is a handy thing to have vs the screw-in variety, but as I say--no point if you're going to block it.

I'd just block it and leave the parts as is. I tried blocking a Strat's trem a long time ago and didn't like the way it felt or sounded, for what it's worth. I love the resonance that the balanced tremolo gives to the sound. It's only a problem if you need to go to drop D tuning.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
