Post floyd into fixed bridge
anyone have an exact method to change out a floyd trem into a fixed bridge like Paul did on his older ones? Im decent at working with wood but dont have access to any cnc machines or any fancy equipment. Any ideas would be great

My 300 is converted to hardtail "Paul style".
I didn't do it myself but it's very simple.
3 blocks of wood cut to fit and Gotoh bridge + ferrules for
the string through.

I gave this drawing to the luthier for him to get the idea and told him to keep it simple, also - no routing!
(sorry the notes are in swedish but it should be pretty self explanatory):

It works great!

That involves routing and refinishing, you might as well
buy another guitar imo (unless you're thinking of
refinishing anyway) + it's not easily
reversible.
