So, pretty self-explanatory in the title. Basically I just bought a PRS SE Custom 24 and I want to make it dive only since I don't pull up on the bar. What would be the best way to go about this? Links and videos are more than welcome and thank everyone in advance.

What Chris posted but beware the SE models (not sure about Core models) have a small amount of timber between the trem cavity floor and the pickup cavity. The stopper still works but jsut dont make the hole to large when pre-drilling. Its not something that will be a problem if you know of the issue and are careful. IVe used it many times on the different SE's ive had.

That said block the trem with a piece of timber if that's a concern.

Which side do I put the wood, under the springs or between the body and the block?

You lose the ability to whammy (other than dive) and/or flutter. You gain the tuning stability of a hardtail and the ability to switch between tunings without having to rebalance the bridge.

Thanks for the reply. That is a good advantage, I've been reluctant to change tuning on my FR guitar for that reason.
