Hi I'm looking at getting a FR equipped guitar, but have no need for a FR, so I was wondering if there is a way to convert a FR to a fixed bridge with it looking like a professional "was built like that" kinda feel.

I would get the same guitar with a fixed bridge or something similar, but there isn't much like it in terms of looks so was just wondeing if this was a viable option

Blocking up a trem is a very bad move (IMHO) especially with a guitar BUILT with a trem and a FR Trem at that, but if you want to block it, yes thats possible.

I don't know what you're smoking, but it is totally fine to block a trem.
He could just put something along the line of a tremel-no, and it would be simple, and he could still have the floyd there in case he ever wants to use it...

Why not just buy a guitar without a Floyd Rose?

he has allready stated the answer to this question, that was a pointless post, and yes it is possible, you are also able to keep the floyd routing on the guitar and just use a fixed bridge and change into your floyd if ever needed, and also its not harmfull to the guitar if you block the floyd route, i just suggest using the same wood as the body...for tone reasons..

Im working on doing the same thing on my slammer hammer, only not a floyd rose, I would just much rather have a standard bridge. Ill post pictures on how it goes.

P.S. I second Schecter

buy a tremol-no from allparts. i'm surprised not as many people mention this on UG as some other forums do.

but of course, the tremol-no isn't the perfect solution. you will still have the issue of it being locking on the neck and bridge. the tremol-no is awesome, though.

what guitar is it?


Well I was thinking of a Razorback since it sounded ****ing mean when I tried it and I love the look of them, but I hate FR with a passion, so I'm thinking of blocking the trem or taking it out completely and fitting it with a fied bridge so that it looks like it was built like that.

Obviously they don't make them without a FR so this was the best option, thanks everyone for the suggestions, but what's a tremel-no?

what's a tremel-no?

straight from temol-no.com:

Q- What is a Tremol-No™ ?
A- The Tremol-No™ is an internationally patent-pending device that is added to an electric guitar equipped with a tremolo/vibrato unit. It allows guitarists to turn their tremolo unit "on" or "off".
Q- What the heck is the "Deep-C™"?
A- The Deep-C™ is an accessory that comes with every Tremol-No™ unit. When locked in place, the Deep-C™ allows full floating tremolos to function as 'dive-only' tremolos. Just like the Tremol-No™, it installs with no modifications to the guitar, and can be slipped on in under a minute. For example, your fully floating trem can now be full floating, or 'dive-only', or hardtail. Changing between the three takes mere seconds.

they run for about $60USD. it might sound like some crappy gimmick that doesn't work, but a lot of people swear by them, and i haven't seen any complaints. i might pick one up.
