I decided to block off my tremolo since I don't use it that much and I like to switch tunings. So I set everything up, getting ready to block it when i realized that I'm not able to fit the block of wood in the cavity betwee the bridge and the tail of the guitar. When I take off the cover there's like a platform that it rests on that blocks me from putting my block in. I don't know how to get by this. There are photos below.

Here are some steps for putting the block, click on the one that says "Tremolo Blocking for Detuning":

Now here you can see in this image that there is enough space to place the block:

And here is a diagram so you can see how its set up:

Other than that i guess you have to take the tremolo out of the body, put the block and then put back the tremolo. Hope this helped.

By the way, if that is an Ibanez RGT42DXFM, i want to know what you think of it, is it good, worth the price, any bad things about it, etc.... is just that i was thinking of getting that guitar and i want to know if it's good.

Ya, the guitar is an RGT42DXFM, I find that it's an extremely good guitar. It has great action, a fast neck, jumbo frets, and it's dead sexy. The bridge isn't the greatest but if you don't abuse it and have it set up well it's great. I'm only blocking it cause I like playing in different tunings though.
