I always have because, well... Steve Vai does it! And now I'm not so sure. I think it cuts down on spring squeak, but is it killing energy transfer to the body and thus sustain?

I'm setting up my RG7620 and am going to leave the wadded up Kleenex out of the cavity for now and see, but I was wondering what you guys think. :cool:

I've never bothered really. I've never had trem noise be that much of an issue. If I was going to do something then I'd just put a layer of tape across the springs. I actually like the little verb the springs can cause sometimes so it's not that much of an issue.

Update: I took the Kleenex out and the trem is not making wicked noise. I think I have an easier time achieving controlled feedback, which tells me the body is resonating a bit more. Guitar sounds good. I dunno but I may try the inner tube method :yesway:
