so im not to good with trems, and im looking for a new guitar and the one i like the most has a floyd =[

and thats my only concern with this guitar,
but a friend of mine told me i could block it...


what does that mean??

is it like making the trem solid so it acts as a fixed bridge?

how do i do it, and how much should it cost?

adding a block basically turns it into a sort of fixed bridge. you might wanna just get a guitar without one. what guitar do you wanna get?

IMO, if you buy a guitar with a Floyd, you should use it, at least a little. if your not ever gonna use one, DO NOT BOTHER buying the guitar! its far more trouble than its worth trying to restring and block, etc.

My HM Strat has a Kahler copy of a Floyd. I just adjusted the spring tension all the way so it lays flat against the body of my guitar. I can still bend (wham?) down, but it's no longer floating so I can't bend up, which is what I wanted.

No complications with tuning, no floating pain in the ass, and I still retain half the whammy operation.
