My strat has the standard bridge and it falls out of tune pretty fast. I always wondered if I could make it like a hard tail without buying a new bridge. My question is, can I? Can I make it non-tremolo so that it stays in tune longer. I noticed six screws underneath each string on the bridge and I was wondering if maybe I tightened those... I dunno, any suggestions?

If you think you will use the trem but just want better stability, than your best bet is locking tuners. If, on the other hand, you think you will never use the trem (like me), you can block it. Just fit another 2 springs in the back (for a total of 5), tighten them, but before you do that, squeeze (they have to be really tight) two small blocks of wood in your tremolo cavity so that essentially the trem block is locked into place. This, done right, gives you a much better sustain!

Like this (not my guitar, just a nice images that is posted every time someone askes your question):
Gear:
Gibson les paul Studio faded, modded Buckethead style (killswitch, 1 tone, 1 vol)
Taylor Big Baby 306-GB
Modded Cort KX-5, runaway (neck) and warthog (bridge)
Laney VC-15
Digitech Bad Monkey, EH Big Muff, crybaby JH-1

just to add. TS, if u max out the springs in that back cavity, and tighten up the two screws in there. the bridge will be so tight u might not need or want the block.

IMO, it's best just to keep the bridge tight, set up correctly for that guitar.
sometimes guys give up on trem bridges prematurely, not knowing that a simple set up would solve their tuning issues.
