So i was planning to buy a ibanez s470 for my metal guitar. But it had a floyd rose and i heard chaning tunings on them were a pain in the arse. If i blocked off the trem, would it be the same as a guitar with no trem so when i change tunings, i dont have to adjust the intonation etc.

I feel like bumping my post count, so...

Yeah, block it with a piece of wood (or even better, some chunk of metal) and you'll practically have a fixed-bridge guitar.

Dont bother buying a S470 if you want a fixed bridge just buy a rg series? I have a s470 and love it but the locking tremolo is a lot of the fun.

The Zero trem is one of the key features on the S imo if you block it off you can just as well get an SZ, or an RGA (the second one is what I did).
