Re: Floyd rose locking nut install fail

Nick is correct--that's the only way to do it. Find some dowels that are as small as possible, but slightly bigger than the holes. Drill the holes to the size of the dowel--paying careful attention to not drilling too deep. Wrap the drill bit with masking tape right at your dept line to prevent going too deep. Glue in the dowels, let dry, the cut the extruding dowels flush. Then redrill your mounting holes.
