    How I block trems.

    Here's how I now block trems at my shop, doing away with making cheap-looking wood blocks that always shift and shit...I think some of you can get some ideas on doing something similar.

    Why not ?

    Looks great. I might try something similar on one of my guitars, because I never use the trem anyway.

    Allen, did you ever get any of these made up to fit the RGD block?
    EDIT: Other than the one in your thread?

    Very elegant.

    That's fucking awesome dude, I thought about doing something similar to a Floyd rose trem but I determined the ghetto wood block way was cheaper.
