It will be very out of tune. Tune it unblocked unless you plan on blocking while you play.

I'm sorry, man.

But yeah, don't block it to tune it.

if the bridge goes into the body, then there is too much pull from the springs in the trem cavity, and that should be adjusted.

I heard that you're supposed to tune EA EAD EADG EADGB EADGBe, that way everything is balanced, but i guess that works too

What I do is E, EA, E, EA, E, EA, EAD, E, EA, E, EAD, A, E, D, EADG, A, E, D, EADGB, D, G, A, B, E, B, e, EADGBe. It works great, but takes a long time to memorize this whole bullspit that my tech taught me. Oh, maybe it's the trem, what do you have?

Sweetness, the method E, EA, EAD, EADG, EADGB, EADGBe will work great on these nice trems. Scratch my stupid method, my hometown tech showed me that for my old EDGE III junk.
