Re: where can I get the trem posts for the Edge trem?

ok another question...... Ibanezrules.com has 3 types of trem posts.... "Old design 92'-00'", "redesigned - grooved", and "EP-non-locking". which one do I need for this Edge Trem from 1999?

thanks

E-mail Rich and say what exact model you have (if it's 99 it sounds like it should be a lo-pro) and ask which posts you need, that's what I did.

Old design - same thing that's in your guitar.

Redesigned - same stud but with the V opened up for freer movement and truer returns.

EP studs - non locking junk pulled out of new guitars and replaced with locking studs.

Your choice, not mine. There's a reason they cost more. The old design are studs I took out of new guitars to replace with good ones.

Question Re: where can I get the trem posts for the Edge trem?

here are pics of the problem.....


in this picture, you can see the stud chipped on the top. I can't adjust the height to do setups anymore, and currently the post is too deep in the body that the trem knife edge lifts up from the studs when I'm pulling up.

second pic.....


in this picture, the trem is not aligned in the routing. it's a bit on the right side, and the right side is closer to the nut than the left side. it is more noticeable if you look at where the fine tuners are..... the right side is almost touching the body, while the left side is far from the body.

third pic....


in this picture, you can see the trem block is a bit crooked, and the right spring is crooked

would replacing the trem studs fix this problem? thanks
