Re: Ibanez Jen BFP tremolo instability?

Ibanez bridge like every other bridge in universe just obeys laws of physics,
On one side of knives are strings pulling on other are springs pulling.

If bridge is leveled too much up, you need to give more string force or screw strings in.

If you move bridge in any direction by adjusting springs or moving bar string HAVE TO change pitch.

Since floyd rose types bridges are not synchronised it is NORMAL that 6th and 3rd string change pitch more then 4th and 1st.

If your guitar tech know to adjust Floyd Rose he CERTAINLY know how to adjust this ibanez bridge because it is SAME thing with slightly different shaped parts.

You can not get strings and bridge in tune because YOU do not know how to do it , and that is not JEM's problem.

I can not beleive that in 2 years you didn't adjust properly bridge and you are gigging and recording? ( or that you need to adjust your strings in 8 minutes or they are dead and you need new set.)

Buy the way, there are few tricks to adjust it in less time. For instance , put soft cloth under bridge to keep it levelled when you took string out. Also when you bringing string to tunning, it is faster if you bring it semitone or few more up, because when you bringing next string to tune , this string will go down, so you will bring all strings to tune faster. When you are close to pitch then make this uptunings smaller until you bring all strings in tune.

In short it is not BFP fault, it is you.
