Looking for a trem that would be blocked

I've got an 540S body with routing for an original edge. I'm not planning on using the trem for this guitar, so what is the best/cheapest option for a bridge that fits in there that doesn't sound like crap? Originally I bought the body and was going to fill up the hole and refinish, but the top is too gorgeous :P so I'll just block the trem with some wood. Obviously going for an original edge is my best bet but those are kind of pricey if I don't intend on using it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

If you intend to block it, you can find a cheap used Ibanez bridge for about 30$ on eBay. Since you won't be using it, it wouldn't matter if it was stable or not. Just block it and it'll be good!
