Hi, I have an Ibanez RG series with a floyd rose, which I've learned to hate. Every time I change the tuning I have to adjust the tension, and I never even use it. I browsed around for tips but didn't find anything too substantial. Is removing a floyd rose a massive undertaking? Should I just get it done professionally?

You could just block it with a couple pieces of wood like this.

Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

This x 100.

Removing a floyd is very easy btw. But filling the void and installing a new bridge and finishing/repainting... Not so much.

shove wood in there
Remove trem arm
????
profit.

Interesting.. would I then just lower the tension until it rested upon the block? Also why would you need a piece of wood on both sides?

You can never profit after removing such a beautiful tool from a guitar player

It stops the bridge from diving.

Find peices that fit the sides well enough to keep the bridge in optimal position. Shim it if your peices are too small. You shouldnt need to change tension.
