A quick question about wilkinson trems: can they be over-tightened to sit flat like a hardtail, much like a strat bridge with 5 springs?

I am looking at a used Carvin and im not sure i want to deal with a non-locking floating trem, and want the option of just locking it down.

Yes. It;s not back routed or anything so there is really no reason why you couldn't lock it down.

Or you could keep it floating and just use a Tremol-no. Those things are worth their weight in gold.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

i had a Wilkenson Trem on a guitar that i gave to my fiancee last christmas. i locked it down no problem. at the time she had played for a year and wasn't really playing anything that needed a trem.
