Jem 70v edge bridge question

Hi guys,

I have this guitar and noticed when I completely took the strings off a while ago that the bridge looked quite weird (to me). Please see the below youtube video using its ID (sorry I couldn't post a link this is my first post, if you google this it will come up)

I'm not sure if this is how it is supposed to be or if something has happened. You don't notice it when playing as the tension moves it out of that position.

Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

Chris

Re: Jem 70v edge bridge question

Everything seems fine.
Springs are pulling tremolo their way and there is no strings tension to balance bridge.
When changing strings change one at time , not all strings at once until you learn how it is working.
But when you take all strings out you can lube it with chapstick or similar.

Hi there,

thanks for that, gives me some piece of mind. I usually change one string at a time, but I moved country and took strings off before hand. Not leaving this beauty behind!
