proline 1770 help.

Hi guys, I've had this account for a while, but I am finally starting to play. I have a couple questions hopefully someone can help with. The tremolo knife edges on my guitar seem to be a little worn. I have read that they can be filed and fixed. However, I have also read that you should just leave them how they are. What do you guys think?. Also a little piece of metal fell out of my guitar. It seems to be the same color and metal as the tremolo. Do you guys know what it is. Thank you!!

Re: proline 1770 help.

First--why not post this down in the tech section?
That piece of metal looks flat like a saddle shim.
The knife edges can be filed down on that trem--it's an original Edge.
If you do a site search for "knife edge," you'll find threads that address that.
You can also check the tech section of Rich's site--I think he has a tut for that.
