Re: JS 1200 Trem blockage/replacement options...
Something like a Tremol-No is not going to give you better sustain/tone than solid wood blocks in there. The EdgeFX isn't available anywhere unless you buy a JS2000 and steal the trem off it -- which makes no sense as the 2000 (true hardtail) is already going to sound better than a blocked JS1200. Converting a trem body to a hardtail body takes a lot of work (you can't do a half-ass job or it will sound terrible), and then you will need a refinish anyway. Leave it the way you have it now, or swap the whole thing out for a JS2000/1200/6/6000.
