I decided to start working on my Jackson Dinky, and one of the first things I was wanting to do was replace the cheap block in it. I ordered one through a guy on ebay, and will be getting it pretty soon. I have never messed with anything like this, so I don't know how to replace it. But I am willing to learn, and would like to.

I will take they guitar into my local shop to get new strings and be set up regardless if I change the block myself or not, so is it worth doing it myself? I didn't know how hard it would be to take the old block off, and I don't know how much my shop would charge to do change it. Looks for any advice, or tips on how to do it. Thanks.

you have to remove all the saddles, you then unscrew the block from the base plate (usually three counter-sunk screws) and screw a new one on.
Obviously this throws your intonation out but if you're having the guitar shop do a set up this doesn't matter!

Ok, thanks. If it isn't too hard I will proably attempt to do it. I did a search for it before I posted, or else I would have posted in the Floyd Rose thread.

I got my block and decided to do everything myself, (replacing block and strings) and there is a huge difference in the guitar! I sounds a lot better, but you hear the most change when playing clean. I recommend anybody who has a Floyd Rose guitar to check them out. I bought from a guy named Hoockey on ebay, real nice guy, great prices, and I had the block within a couple of days.

It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought changing the block. I talked to my local guitar shop and he told me that I would be paying around $60-$70 for it. Glad I did it my self. Now iff I could just get the bridge completely level with the guitar body...

i used the Floyd Upgrades video on Youtube to do mine. He really knows his stuff, and it really isn't that hard to do. He did a 3 part video on it.
