Ok, I've put 10s on my Ibanez which has an Edge III bridge and previously had 9s. This made the bridge go up and the neck bend a bit. I adjusted the truss rod and the tremelo springs to sort this out but now the 2 screws in the back are fully screwed in.

I think I need another trem spring but since I never use the trem I can't be bothered and just want to block it off completely and use it as a hardtail. How do I go about doing this?

Blocking The Tremolo System

There are couple of things that you can do to block them -
  • 2 wooden blocks, cut to a proper measurement according the distance between the body and the trem block;
  • More than 2 blocks/thin pieces of wood that are sandwiched in between (i prefer this way as you dont need the exact 100% proper measurement)





It is highly recommended that you make sure that your bridge is perfectly parallel or near perfect before you take your measurements. You dont want your studs/knife edges to be chipped/dented when you adjust the action.

Yeah you could, but you gotta extend the grounding wire from the claw since there's nothing connecting it to the tremolo block

Just leave 1 spring in.



Or you can leave no springs and stick the ground wire into one holes in the block.
