Best way to block the tremolo on a JTV-69

Recommended Posts

I have no use use for the tremolo so I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to lock it down. I've seen the various hardware solutions (ex. Tremol-No etc) but I really think I'd rather just use one or two wooden blocks.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not a carpenter and I can't even get the proper measurements for the blocks' sizes.

 

I'm hoping someone has done this before and can tell me what size the block/s should be and where precisely to put them.

You can try a deck of playing cards to get the right thickness then cut the cards down so they fit within the cavity with the cover back on.

Disneyland performers for the Mad Hatter Tea Party show a couple years back, used little wood blocks in their JTV-69 guitars.

Well placed to do he job and out of the way of the workings in general. It did the job rather well. When they returned the guitars,

I pulled the blocks, checked the set-up and electronics,... all was good.

 

The wood blocking does alright, just be aware of how fits in here.

The little wood blocks were hand carved from Pinocchio's nose.

LOL,... maybe, but it was effective.

After I went through them, I kept the blocks in a cup, the guitars with their very Disney special custom artwork, 

were auctioned off at a youth music education benefit charity. We're into that sort of thing.
