    Yes I know it is blasphemy but I want to block my JP15's treolo. What is the esiest way? I saw some use tremol-no but there are like 3-4 different kinds. Which one is the right one?

    I'll do a NGD at some point

    Do you want it completely blocked?

    Tremol-Nos are great if you need it locked occasionally, but two wood blocks (one in front and one in back of the sustain block) is still the best method for "hard blocking" the unit.

    Tremol-no is great, you at least have the option of dive bomb only.

    I would say the easiest thing though is the use some wood or tape some coins and place between the plate and the body.

    Tremel-no works great. No reason not to do it - it’s easy to remove, keeps the bridge rock solid and if you decide, one day, to engage in some tremolo wankery it’s easy to switch back and forth.
