    Decided not to block the trem on this. I will give it a fair shot and see if I can overcome my disappointment with the PRS trem. So far, it's performed better than expected.

    When I got my Tremonti a few months back, went through the exact same thing. Decided not to block it in the end and am glad I didn't. Have a lot of hardtails already and kinda defeats the purpose of this guitar IMHO.

    I was gonna suggest that @elvis just learns how to quickly re-tune - I have a colleague in the music biz, he gigs seriously regularly, and is constantly changing tuning on his guitar - now it is an acoustic, but still, he can retune from std E to DADGAD for one song, then next song to something like EBEFCF in the mere seconds of banter between songs.

    Once you get a feel for your guitar, you just know how much to turn each tuner to get it from one to the next "roughly" in tune, and then do a quick fine tune.

    But...another guitar does solve the problem just as easily.

    I do this with hardtails, but the trem will always take longer and be less stable.

    I was going to suggest what shinksma said, but as elvis said, it's a little trickier w/a trem. If it had a Floyd, the D-Tuna is a brilliant solution for this. But it doesn't.

    Someone (Hipshot?) made tuning pegs that worked like the D-Tuna - don't know if those are still around or not.

    Unfortunately the D-tuna only works if you block the trem so it only dives. I'll just have to see how quickly I can retune and get it to settle.
