So, I have this Kramer I was fixing to throw in as a live backup guitar. Standard 2 point trem. I ordered a chinese Floyd copy off of Ebay, and hoped it would come in time for a show I had coming up. Floyd copy gets "lost in mail", I get a replacement, go through the horrible horrible install on the Kramer and call it a day.
A week later, the lost Chinese Floyd copy shows up. Company tells me to keep it. I figure I've got spare parts for what will inevitably fail some day real soon. One night, I smoke a few too many spliffs and I'm giving my DX it's weekly string change. For poop and giggles, I pull off the Bendmaster and see if the mystery Floyd from abroad fits.
It fits. The block is short, so I route out a bit of the spring cavity. After a regular "flush floyd" setup, it intones and keeps rock solid tune.
So what the F? Am I just a lucky Dr. Frankenstein?
At any rate....since this fit this thing, I'd like to put a real Floyd with a fat block in it. Even though this bridge _fits_, I'd like a good one that I don't have to continue reviving, because I already know what kind of trouble I'm in for with this mystery metal. Since this surprise Chinese lumpus fits, what real Floyd would go on here?

BUT YOU HAVE TO SWAP out the original bridge posts to the smaller Chinese ones otherwise it won't intonate. They screw straight in the original threaded inserts.
Have a look here, link, Floyd
Here it is.
