Re: EDGE trem question

What do you mean by that? The arm torque?
It can be adjusted using the plastic bushings.

Re: EDGE trem question

You can convert it to a Floyd type threaded bar. That would allow you to lock it down.

Re: EDGE trem question

gilky is right!

thats really easy.works great as well.is done in a few minutes.
but looks less smooth than original.otherwise get used to it as it is now.
the most of us dont have that problem,mod the trem,you can undo that very quick to.

instead of just raving on about how easily it is done in a few minutes, how about telling us how it's done!

im curious too

Re: EDGE trem question

arrrg.
I dont know if ill do that. I'm not too saavy with this stuff and dont want to f*k my trem. I guess its not that big of a deal, but i just wanted to see if i could do it without actually modding it.
thanks guys.
