you stick the block of wood under the back of the trem where the fine tuners are located, see a gap? stick it there!

are you positive about that?
usually the wooden block should be placed right between the trem block and the body, in the back of the guitar (spring-cavity), not under the "tail" of the trem where the fine-tuners are located.

Th wood block should go between the front of the tremolo block and the guitar body. Under the area where the tremolo springs attach to the trem block.
