I have a friend who is interested in replacing his Gotoh 510 tremolo with a Wilkinson VS100. Does anyone know if this is a drop in replacement? It looks like the studs are the same but I have no experience with it.
Thank you

The Wilkinson VS100 is a larger rout than a Gotoh 510 so although the studs are similar it is likely not to drop in.

But why do this in the first place, what is trying to be achieved?

He just likes the feel and look of the Wilkinson (his other guitars have had them before)....I personally am more of a Floyd guy myself, but I work on his stuff for him from time to time.

You can see the difference in the routs here if you wanted to make the adjustments.
