Hi Tom,
Love your site and your work!
I have a simple restoration question. I am restoring a System 1 bridge, and I'm running into trouble with separating the block from the bridge plate?the hex screw closest to the whammi bar WILL NOT BUDGE! The one furthest from it came out easily enough, and the center one required a vise-grips attached to my 2.5 allen wrench to free it, but nothing seems to be able to budge the last screw. I noticed, after removal, that the difficult center screw seemed to have some yellowish "crust" on it. I suspect that the zinc of the block has somehow interacted, over time, with the steel of the screw, but I have no idea how to get this screw out without stripping it! In your invaluable experience, have you encountered this? I'm sure that nothing like this stands in the way of your efforts, any advice you might offer would be greatly appreciated!
I will be posting pictures of my restored Contemporary Tele when I'm through. Thanks again for your help and blessings on you for your ministry!

Hi again papatom,

Were you able to get some more information about the Whammy bar for the Schaller(fender) system III?
I have found one on ebay...but the seller is not willing to send to Europe. Its item 220466116151 offered by Gravity Music Gear in Denver (green Mij body incl. Tremolo system II). Could you help here perhaps?
Talk to you soon,
Leon
