Question What have I done?!?

As i have posted in many threads before, i bought last month a 2005 7VWH....my question is....i hear that the edge pro is not a good bridge..... did i mess up? How do I fix the problem? My knife edges are fine, yet it doesnt come back up from a dive in %1000 perfect tune.....

There's nothing wrong with the Edge Pro - Just make sure you set it up properly (Use Ibanezrules for that)

Another thing to check. Make sure the locking nut is tight....the screws that hold the nut to the neck. Don't overtighten them. Check the screws the hold the neck to the body. Movement in these places, along with others can cause tuning instability problems and are sometimes overlooked.

Just in case.
