ok i got a ibanz electric guitar with a floyd rose bridge with the fine tunning shit , i was wonder if i could make mine into a single locking because the one i got is the double and ****ing pain in the ass ya gotta cut the ball ends of the cords and shit but any how the single its built the same way just instead of the crunchers to crunch the cords its got hollow screws and ya just run the cords threw the screws and up threw the bridge, so i was wondering if i just bought hollow screw and took out the crunchers would it work? or would i just have to buy a new bridge?

you dont have to lock the nut. But it will adversely affect tuning stability. if you dont want a locking bridge you will have to replace it

why would you want to make your bridge worse?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

you guys hes not talking about getting rid of the locking nut hes talking about getting rid of the locking bridge, hence DOUBLE locking with a nut and bridge as oppossed to SINGLE with just the nut for stability.

and sorry man i dont know if you can. i reckon a halfway decent singlelocking bridge isnt that much, i had the same problem and it hindered my decision if i wanted a guitar with a floyd or not. :/

Double locking is more stable then single locking. And you cant really modify your trem for that, you gotta get a new one.

What Ibanez and which bridge do you have?
