how do I adjust action??? (low pro edge)

My new baby just arrived. 1992 S540.

Plays like butter, I love it. Maple neck and everything.

However i ran into a big problem.

The tuning was way off and was in Standard.

I dropped it down to Drop C. Now a little buzz. Went to raise the action a little and wtf.

The bridge doesn't take an alan key.

This is a big problem. Can anyone advise exactly what tool I need for this?

Im a noob sorry. Support says it IS a 4mm alan.

Didn't look like one at all. It was a clean circle. Hopefully they're not stripped

Re: how do I adjust action??? (low pro edge)

I recently sold a S470 with a LoPro. An alan wrench to the studs is how the action is raised/lowered. It would be a total bummer if they were stripped but if that's the only issue with the trem, I'm sure you could get some studs pretty easily. Are you using metric or standard wrenches?

That guitar should have locking studs which is basically a smaller screw inside the post. You will want to unscrew that a bit before adjusting the post.

I Think you are fine since you backed the post out. The inner screw is 2mm allen I think. Search Lo-Pro Locking studs and you will find the Ibanez instructions.

Visit the Ibanez Rules website (hyperlink at top of page). You'll find great stuff on Rich's site.
