Are the bridge lock blocks 100% necessary to putting strings on a floyd rose? I saw one on ebay that had the balls of the strings locked into the cavitys, and i have 2 guitars with floyd roses im ready to sell, but they just dont have lockblocks and strings.

I have never done without the block but I would think it is possible. Just annoying and time consuming without.

Someone will be along who has tried it I reckon.

Loadsa people do it with bottle caps etc, with no problem, it shouldn't be an issue.

not sure what you mean by a lock block..do you mean the hunk of wood/eraser/pencil or whatever which you put under the FR while you're changing strings?
my gear:
Jackson DKMG(the one with EMG 81/85's)
b-52 AT 212 100 watt amp
old gear i'll probably sell eventually:
yamaha beginners guitar
gunmetal grey Fender squire strat
Fender 65R amp

^^ That's what I thought, that's why I said bottle cap....

yeah, the saddle lock block things. i just setup a double locking floyd rose with no lockblocks on the saddles, just slipped the ball under the string tension screw and tightened it thumb tight, works like a charm.

Oh, I SEE! Well yes I use them. I imagine it would be considered pretty unorthodox not to, but maybe less hassle in the end (can't lose the blocks)
