Re: Edge pro tuning problem. Is the EZII better?
Its your guitar. Do what you wish. Somehow I think this shop knows exactly whats up with it and will wind up fixing the issue and flipping it for a tidy profit.
I do wish you the Best of luck in selling it to this shop and finding something else that suits your needs with the 620 USD equivalent you get for it.
I do understand your reluctance to disassembling your instruments. We've all been there before and theres a first for anything. You have to just jump in feet first sometimes and get in there. I think once you've done it a time or two you will see its not a difficult task if you have to completely remove the whole trem from the body. If you ever want to refinish a body you will have to do it.
Rich earlier in the thread was giving you some solid advice as were the others. There is a ton of excellent info in these forums. In the end if you are willing to do a lil bit of homework and stick with it you can setup anything you want yourself. At a fraction of the cost it takes to farm it out. If you choose to farm it out to someone who doesn't have a clue its just more wasted time and money too. As you've discovered there are many opinions on the matter and no one is right or wrong honestly. Its your guitar(s), you have to play em not us so do what you feel is right of course.
Again, best of luck and I never seriously expected you to sell it someone for 50 bucks. 620 is actually quite fair for what will probably amount to a lil woodglue in the anchor hole. Worst case a dowel and redrill as I'm just betting that was your issue all along if everything else seemed to be in order.
