Edge 3 trem.

I have an RG5EX1 "made in 2008" with the Edge 3 and have no problems at all with tuning stability. I beat the hell out of that tremolo. I really don't understand all of the negativity about that trem. I've been playing electric guitar for 30 years and most of that is on floating bridge guitars. Is it a setup issue with other ppl or what? Am I just lucky? Your feedback is most welcome.

It seems that you're lucky, or haven't worn the knife edges on bridge enough yet. You look to be the exception to the rule.

Re: Edge 3 trem.

You never know, there might actually be some good well tempered knife edge plates on some ED3's [and EP2's, they share the same type plate].

But I personally took a new ED3 off of a brand new guitar during setup and the flat side knife already had a .5mm mating dimple in it. You could abuse an original Edge for 20 years and not get that.
