    Default 2017 MIM Charvel: Floyd Sustain Block Upgrade

    Has anyone upgraded the sustain block on their MIM Charvel, which has the FR 1000? Mine came with a size 32, and I'm wondering if the 32mm L-block will fit or I could go up to a 37mm block.

    Thanks!

    Nope sure haven't. I've only upgraded my MIJ Charvel.

    I upgraded my Satchel with a brass clock. 37mm fits.

    32mm is for recessed installs. 37mm is for top mount installs (i.e. the Satchel). 42mm is for installs on guitars with thicker bodies.

    Fits sure, but how well does it keep the time?
    In the future though I need to remember to not buy guitars while on Nyquil

    Yep, and if you're going upgrade to a brass block, you should consider upgrading to a brass spring claw at the same time, which will help bring back some of the highs.

    Yup, I got the brass spring claw and titanium screws. I also got the regular 32MM and the L-Block 32mm. Hoping I can make the L-Block work.
