Ibanez Uv70 tremolo adjustment

Hello everyone,
I hope I can get some advise from you.
I have a Ibanez UV 70p and I'm not sure how to adjust the tremolo..so I went to someone who said it that he's done..But it doesn't look right.
Have a look on the picture..
Any advise would be great.
Have a nice day.

Looks alright to me, if you don't know how it's supposed to look why do you think it's wrong?

It's a little tilted forward. You'll need to slightly tighten the trem claw screws in the back of the guitar and retune, loosening the strings a bit.

Re: Ibanez Uv70 tremolo adjustment

The springs are a little slacker than I'd usually set, so it's sitting a bit forward. One way to check is to take the backplate off and see if the block is sitting square inside the route.

Obligatory link to Rich's tech page... IBANEZ RULES!! tech - setup

Link to the Edge Zero II wiki page with setup instructions at the bottom... https://ibanez.fandom.com/wiki/Edge_Zero_II

(Although I must admit the trem in the instructions on page 2 looks suspiciously like an original Edge)

This is NOT correct. The back plate should be parallel to the body. The springs are too loose.

Some disagree, but I don't. Loosen the strings and loosen the stud locks before adjusting bridge height.
