im modifying my squier strat to make it a bit more respectable, and i was wondering is it possible/easy/expensive to switch the tremolo to a fixed bridge? and will this allow more sustain?

There's quite a procedure to changing from the tremolo bridge to a fixed one. There's a tutorial around somewhere.

I personally don't think it would enhance the sustain because of the glue you would have to use.

Its alot of work to fill in the holes in the body. It should make some difference but not as much as if the body was made that way to begin with. Better off to just block it and save up for a hard tail guitar.

Think it'll lose sustain because that huge trem block in the back of the trem does wonders for tone. And I keep my trems flat on the guitar bodies as I never use them to pull up. And it would be pretty damn hard. You might be able to do a hardtail instead of like a TOM.

just to emphasize what everyone else is saying, even once you fill in the big trem hole, you'll have to do a lot of drilling because the new bridge won't line up with the old bridge's screw holes. i almost tried to do this same thing but i realized that it was going to be a whole heck of a lot of work that in the end isnt really worth it.
