For those guitar players that want to stabilize their tuning without having to either flushmount the trem or buy costly products and/or modifications that are non-reversable, the use of a shim will make it happen.
One approach would be to drill two screws through the tremplate to a metal base that is flush-mounted to the body---to costly and impractical.

The other option is to have a cheaper plastic sleeve that fits into the trem slot and at the same time is wedge shaped and flush mounted below the tremplate.

Easily dsigned, and made with cheap materials for those that don't need to pull up.
