Well, ive played the guitar for a couple of years now but never gone to a teacher or any that kind of stuff so i dont know much about the instrument itself.

However, i got a fender classic player 50's guitar (strat), with a 2 point tremolo. I was wondering if i could block it or anything, since i never use the tremolo anyway?
As of now ive just tightened the springs so that the stable (if its called that) is pressed towards the body, i know its supposed to be a little gap there but it seems to work alright.
Ive heard something about clapton blocking his tremolo or something, but i dont remember how or anything, just a memory of that ive heard something about it.

Long question short; can i bloc the tremolo?

why would u block the tremolo on a strat, just take the damn bar off. unless you have a floyd, which can be blocked with a piece of wood in the back of the guitar

That guitar has locking tuners, it's not like it's gonna go out of tune easily. I use mine with Ritchie Blackmore style trem action, and it stays in tune.
