I have a Hamer Monaco with 2 hums and Bigsby. I'm just not a trem guy and traded for this thinking I'd somehow replace the Bigsby with a fixed bridge. My problem with trems is that squishy feel in the strings when they're there. I just grew up playing without that, I guess. After I did a little reading I realized it's not so simple. The spruce top that makes the thing so lively is not designed to support a stop-tail or TOM. I neither want to leave holes in this top nor risk messing with the tone by having a supporting block installed ...if it's even possible. Anyone know of a reasonable solution, or does my nearly-perfect-for-me guitar stay relegated to bedroom playing?
