Another Thread About Tremolo Stability
Hello folks, yet another thread about the Edge 3's tuning stability.
While on my vacation in California, I was looking for some Ibanez standard guitars. However, I found out that the new 2015 versions had been fitted with disgusting "STD. DL" bridges. So, as I covered about 70miles radius going from store to store, I found a used 300$ RG420CM from 2014.
The thing's beautiful and has no scratches or dents whatsoever. It's in pristine condition. I came back to South Korea and I changed the strings to 10s and set everything up all nicely (proper angle and everything). The trem really wouldn't go out of tune, no matter how hard I tried.
After two days , I took off the locking nut things to adjust let the strings stretch and all. However, after securing them back on, I found that the tremolo would go flat when dropped and sharp when pulled. I noticed that whenever I pushed down on the strings behind the nut, it would go sharp. My teacher's advice was to really tighten the locks, and that solved that problem. However, it would seriously not stop detuning when the trem was used.
I've pretty much searched all the forums and threads I could find but none of the answers really helped, as they all talked about setting a proper angle or positioning the nut locks correctly. Any help?
