buy a locking nut.

Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

Don't. Try the roller nut/locking tuner combo, seems to work well for Start-type trems.

Locking nut would work, but looks like **** all without a full floating trem...

Locking tuners, and a lubricated or roller nut would help, but you're never going to be able to use it like a full floating trem such as FR's or Kahlers etc...

Locking nut won't work on that because you have to unscrew the clamps to change tuning.
Buy some locking tuners, they should solve your problems, I believe planet waves and fender makes some.

Sperzel makes the best locking tuners, IMO. I think Gotoh makes some good ones too, but I'm not entirely sure.

Just dont be like me and break your whammy bar off at the threads in the bridge. I tried to drill it out and broke the drill bit. sucks....
