Hey everyone, I was thinking it would be cool if we could have a thread dedicated to any useful tips or tricks anyone has come up with that they'd like to share. Just anything that others may find useful. I think it'd be cool to put all ideas in one place, and help each other out as well as maybe inspire some new ideas. So I guess I'll start with a really simple one. Here's how I stop the springs in the back cavity of any guitar with a trem from ringing and producing unwanted noise that gets picked up. I had seen videos on youtube where people used some sort of tubing that would fit inside the springs, but for me the tubing would come out when I used the trem. I've also used electrical tape around the springs, but if you ever want to take it off it may leave a residue. So, here's my solution - it's completely reversible, and if you like having your rear trem cover on, no one will see it. I use the squishy padding material that comes in Seymour Duncan bass pickup boxes. Simply cut a piece to the right size, and stick it under the springs. If it moves around when you use the trem, you can tape it in place. I used stewmac's binding tape for that, but I imagine masking tape would work fine. If you leave the back cover on your guitar, though, you could attach the piece of that material to the back of the cover instead. Leave any of your own ideas, or tricks you've come across that you think others may find useful! Let's start building this thread!
