Lately I've noticed a tonal hum/light ringing sound from my Ibanez RG550 shortly after I mute the strings or let go of a note.

I'm thinking these noises are coming from the spring mechanisms in the guitar. I recall hearing about this issue before, but I have never heard of any solution.

Does anybody know how to solve this noise problem without blocking the bridge?

Non-ferrous springs??? If you invent them and make a mint of money you owe me a '70's SF Vibro Champ, or maybe a Princeton... I'll leave it up to you.


P.S. I guess you could shield the Pickup Cavities, and/or The Trem cavity.
You can put some foam between the trem springs and the body.
I actually like the sound the springs on my Original Floyd Rose make. Adds a reverb to the guitar. I don't think you can hear it through the amp though, but it does make my guitar louder than most electrics while unplugged.

Take of the tremolo cavity cover and put some foam/tissues in there. It happens with every guitar that has tremolo springs, unless they've been replaced with noiseless springs (like FloydUpgrades sell)
