FatCat Guitar Components Fat Steel Block for Jackson JT6 tremolo 42mm

  • Sale
  • Regular price £45.00

A sustain block for a Jackson JT6 Floyd Rose licensed tremolo made from cold rolled steel.
These are designed to fit the Jackson JT6 tremolo specifically - the one that featured on Jackson, Charvel guitars from 1987-1989 and on a few select Charvette models too.

This is a 1/2" (12.7mm) thick block with a 42mm deep block
Other block depths can be ordered by special order

The original JT6 block was pretty flimsy and contributed to a weakness in sound.
The Feline Fatcat block is almost double the weight of the original

The background to our steel blocks
Having experimented with many older Floyd Rose vibrato units and discovered that some of the earlier ones had blocks made of steel and that these bridges had a different sound with a tight defined bass and a controlled fatness and a keen treble edge, it led us to have some blocks made from Cold Rolled Steel>
These weighed about 50% more than the original brass blocks they are designed to replace
We feel it is a superior sound , almost removing the deficiencies that a normal floyd has in it's affects on your guitars frequency response, sounding closer to a hardtail bridge to my ear.
