ouh cool.. i know what you mean...
those on strats are quite break-able
i'm afraid i will do what richie blackmore had done: he broke all his trem arms, so a man who repaired his guitar put a metal stick that was unbreakable , as it seemed instead of the arm... and he told blackmore that if he would brake it, he wont fix it anymore... so richie played about one week with it , till it broke up
"They think im crazy..
but i know better.
It is not I who am crazy.
It is I who am mad.."
