Okay I have a guitar that this guy made and he knows his stuff on guitars apart from floating trems, and he's stuck a floyd rose in it without giving the body a cavity for the trem to pull backwards into, nor has he put a locking nut on the guitar ( it was only £60 and the paint job is real pretty ) so basically i want to block off the trem, i was going to do it This way,

so my main question is; would the type of wood block i stick in there make any difference to the tone of the guitar?

and any other advice/ hints & tips would be really helpful ( im a bit of a noob )

thanks for any help you might give me!

I think a tremo-no would be much easier

A hard wood like oak would work. However, I used lexan, a plastic (basically polycarbonate) sanded down to exactly fit the bridge. It's been working fine. Wood would be easier though.

The tone will be too similar to really notice the type of wood used.

Also, you can polish turds. Mythbusters prooved this.

I said pick a hard wood because if you put something really soft in there it's likely to compress a little and make tuning annoying for a while. It had nothing to do with tone.

I guess you've got a point there.

I used coins on my RG :P
1 pence, 2 pence and 5 pence coins wrapped in electricians tape to make up the appropriate thickness
