Post PGM100 Floyd Rose question
Ok, I know that Ibanez's are fitted with Edge's and not Floyds, but I wanna ask you guys something:

Can I remove the floyd and in some way or another give my PGM100 a "locked bridge", or a bridge that doesn't move at all? Like a Les Paul bridge or something? I love my PGM, but I'm not into Floyds AT ALL anymore, so I kind'a wanna pursue this problem with ease! Thanks!

You can "block" the bridge with wood or you can buy things like the "trem-nol" or something like that.
It replaces one of the strings and locks it into place essentially making it a fixed bridged guitar.

You can make fitted wood blocks to fill the tremolo cavities like Paul did to his 300. There is also a tutorial on projectguitar.com that's about hardtail conversions. --Jason

i blocked the trem on my pgm300 and it stays in tune better than any of my other guitars. it added a little sustain too.
