7VWH tremolo low-pro-edge only raises no more than a halftone!!! Help please.
i need your help.
Because my Ibanez JEM 7vwh doesn't come back in full pitch after a pull-up of the tremolo (Lo-Pro Edge), i read about the Chapman Stick and bought one.
Then I tried to take off the tremolo as described on the ibanezrules-site.
As i watched that tremolo, i saw that one knife-edge (the right) has got a half circle filed into it. Nevertheless it worked before so that should not be the problem.
To correct the action height, i drew the posts a little bit more in to the guitar and put the tremolo back into the guitar. Now the string height was a little to deep, so tone was killed when doing some bending. So i went through all this again and raised the posts a little bit. Now it's better.
As I put in the tremolo again and tried to play a little bit, I notices, that I could only raise the tremolo no more that a halftone.
My RG 4020 does it better, without a lion claw..
I think, the bottom plate (with the knifeedges) of the tremolo touches the wood, where the posts are screwed into.
Are the posts drilled to deep into the wood? Even if action is ok?
What can i do about that?
Fit the inner neck screws with something to give the neck another angle and raise the posts?
