    Blocked my old Warmoth to dive only. Information for those about to block!

    After the grandiose victory of successfully blocking my Jackson RR24 to a rock solid DIVE ONLY metal machine, I decided to for like the millionth time try to block my loyal and trusted Warmoth Superstrat.

    I've had this trouble before, but I've never really understood the reason, but now I do!
    I first blocked with original 3 OFR springs, and that was shit. Probably because of the uneveness, the thicker strings went sharp.

    However, I changed to TWO really hard Gotoh springs and WOAHPERFECT TUNING STABILITY JUST LIKE THE RR24

    Here's a pic right after blocking, I used 3 strat saddles with screws and superglue.
    Yeah my shirt got stuck in the super glue


    I also got stuck on my chair, I could actually lfit the whole chair up just by standing up!


    CONTEXT: USE EVEN SPRINGS WHEN DIVE-ONLY BLOCKINg. LIKE IN THIS PICTURE RIGHT HEREAND ALSO, MAKE SURE THE BLOCKING THING IS HIGH Up.
    That's why I built the saddles up a bit



    By the way, does somebody know why Gotoh Floyd springs changes their color every now and then? Most have been "bronze color", but once I got "steel color" and now the springs I got was BLACK. I don't feel any different by bending them, but they do look different!

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No. ― Alan Moore

    10 points for title...

    Although I'm not sure how many to deduct for 'grandiose victory' (or even 'victory') in reference to your much maligned RR24 escapades.
    10 PRINT "Nom ";
    20 GOTO 10
    RUN

    Nom Nom Nom Nom...

    The RR24 became fucking AWESOME why do people keep saying I did a bad job with it? It stays in tune and diveonly rules.

    That's why I dive-only-blocked my old Warmoth today, I love that setup. Solid feel, but can still do divebombs and shit.

    AND BETTER YET: it cured my GAS for a hardtail!

    Now I can spend that money on refretting the RR24 and PLEK instead. Wohoo!!!!!

    Because you only blocked it because you broke it first bra

    I'd love a dive-only guitar, if it worked properly.
