Re: Edge pro tuning problem. Is the EZII better?
Adding a spring will make it worse.
The spring need a little more extension to stretch them out a bit.
This is so hard to put in to txt how to fix this.
Loosen the lock nuts and turn each tuner a full turn for starters.
Then tune the guitar to it self, even if it is to high or low in pitch.
It may be at A#ish a little or it may be in the same exact place it was before.
Then lock it down and try the trem again to see if it stays in tune.
If it doesn't, repeat the process going a half turn at a time.
You'll find it will stray in tune without too many turns or the tuners.
You'll be extending the springs getting the coils off each other so they don't bind.
Once you have it in tune, now check with a tuner to see if it is overall to high or low in pitch.
Then turn the screws in the back to get the guitar exactly at A440, tuned to pitch.
The hard part here is maintaining the trem angle at the same time.
If you have not done a lot of setup work you'll have a hard time with this.
I've had this same problem myself and the springs were the problem.
