Is this Edge angle's setup proper?

Hi guys.

If you know more about Edge tremolos take a look at these pictures. Is it correct?

Can't see the pictures either. If you want to know if your trem angle is correct. Take look in the tech section of ibanezrules.com (banner above).

Re: Is this Edge angle's setup proper?

Well my concerns are basicly if you look at this picture (I took it from the Jemsite) if you see the little square marker (in blue) does it need to be just above the body on the Low E string side and as well on the High E string side?

In my case the low E side is just like on the picture but i doesnt shows on the high E side of the bridge. (see pictures above in my previos post)

im no expert but i set my trems up like that and have no problems.
the high and low e's will rarely (in my limited experience) be set at the same height.
that setup looks fine - maybe the pups are a little close to the strings though

String height is a personal pref but the mark detailed above should be level. For the pu height, you've got to find the sweet spot for the pick-up and your playing style.

looks good, a little to low , if I set it up that low I get some fret buzz on my 550.

That looks almost exactly where my edge is, and she works fine, so I'll say yes!

If the lil rectangular thing shows on one side but not the other, then it would seem that one post is higher than the other... i wouldnt like that, as it would mean the low E is waaay higher than the high E... (how confusing was that?? )

i like my strings even in height, so my bridges are as parallel to the body as i can get them...
