Cool Edge Tremolo Setup...Help!

Whats up guys im new to jemsite and today i just bought my first ever Ibanez Jem7v, its a 2011 model which is back to the original Edge tremolo that Steve Vai still uses to this day.. Ok well what i want/need to know is does Ibanez have these trem's setup correctly? Because my Edge trem seems kinda stiff and it has little flutter effect... pretty stiff... also the Intonation appears done in [email protected]$$ fashion... i checked the intonation at the 12th fret and it wasnt very accurate to the open strings. So i want to know after you buy a Jem do i still need to do a pro-setup? I figured any company that sells guitars over $2,000+ they'd have the factory set them up to a pro-setup standards, string action, intonation, string height, etc, like PRS and Gibson do. So should i just resetup my trem in all phases or is this really the best the factory can do??

Re: Edge Tremolo Setup...Help!

Did you buy it straight from the factory? Even a guitar that is perfectly set up and tuned might lose it's perfection in time. There are a lot of factors you know. If you bought it from a store which ordered the guitar then it could be anything from transportation to people touching it at the store.
