Edge III - RG350DX
Just registered here looking for some help with my Edge III on a RG350DX.
It was originally set up with 12s in standard tuning with 5 springs. I changed to 9s, removed two springs and dropped the tuning. I got the bridge to rest parallell to the body and the strings are in tune. I used a thin piece of steel to keep the bridge flat while tuning; worked like a charm.
Problem: the action is much higher than it was with the 12s (i guess because of the drop tuning). To adjust the action, can I just use an allen key on the two screws near the knife edge (are these the posts?). I take it if i start playing with the action, I should unlock the locking nut and I'll have to reset the bridge.
Also, when should I check/adjust the intonation? After I lower the action and tune and set the bridge, but before I lock the nut? Will adjusting the intonation cause the bridge to raise or lower, or is the effect so minimal that I wont notice? Do I have to set the bridge after intonation?
This is what I was planning to do:
1. Unlock nut.
2. Lower action.
4. Set bridge (or intonate).
5. Intonate (or set bridge).
6. Lock nut
I looked through ibanezrules but I couldnt figure out what route I should take.
