How cumbersome is the process?

Afterwards, is tuning/detuning and changing strings the same as if the guitar was a hardtail?

How cumbersome is undoing the process?

you can buy a trem block and it essentially makes it a hardtail bridge. it becomes rather simple to tune

Is it pretty easy to do though?

this is probably a dumbass question but can you just ditch the springs when its blocked? i reed the space for stuff haha.

^Yeah huh. If you get a small blcok of wood, or a dead 9 volt battery, you can shove it behind the trem block, and then feel free to take out the springs, assuming the wood block is tight enough. But whatever would you need the space for?

drugs.


and +2 ull want the springs there to help stabilize the bridge.

TS, did you have the strAT set up correctly? usually if u keep a level bridge, you wont need to block it.

depends on how you block it. obviously to be able to remove the springs, the trem needs to be blocked on both sides. Do this with either one wood block (or something) on each side, or push it against the body of the guitar and just shim the other side.

on mine, I just tightened the springs down so that the springs pull the trem tightly against the body. Putting a block in there is probably a better solution. Tuning stability should be much better once you block the trem (if it was a crappy one to begin with like mine).
