is there any way to just completely lock your floyd rose. I don't really feel i use the whammy enough and I am in love with my Ibanez. However i hate having to tune especially since I like to switch tunings alot. if anyone could help please do!

Screw down the trem claw all the way. Or just add a few more springs, i think the most you can have is 5.

Block it out with a piece of wood, just measure, cut and put it in, make sure everything is parallel

No. Use a two blocks of wood like described above.

Yeah. Using wood blocks would definitely be your best bet.

As for tuning, if you use drop D a lot, buy yourself a D-tuna.

a dtuna wont work if your bridge is recessed and you would only be able to dive

what my brother does is set the fine tuner on the E right down into the floyd as far as it'll go, then tunes it to standard using the machine head, and locks the nut, which gives him enough leaway in the fine tuner to tune to drop D using it alone.

I have kind of the opposite problem. The previous owner of my Warlock put a single block of wood on the spring side of the trem and I wanted to try playing with the bridge in it's natural state.

I pulled the chunk of wood out but the bridge dropped all the way back and the string locking screws bottomed out on the body of the guitar. I unlocked the nut and re-tuned it back to pitch but the bridge still remains in the back-most position and the strings are practically touching the frets now. It's fine when I put the block back in.

I'm guessing this has something to do with the strings not providing enough pull to get the bridge back in the right position or something like that. Do I just need to replace the strings again with the block removed and hope the bridge settles?
