no need to cut anything, just screw it on the body with a couple short screws. of course place it so that it won't touch the trem springs.

Re: Install backstop in my Jem

Re: Install backstop in my Jem

Depending on your guitar you MAY need to route for the backstop as the stepped cavity may not be long enough to accomodate it.

The backstop is a bit different from products like the tremol-no as it does not STOP your trem(unless you put a lot of tension against the trem and also put a lot of spring tension). It's more of a trem-stabilizer than anything.
