just got a RG350DMZ - Edge II trem question..

.. just got a nice new RG350DMZ in white with the latest Edge II ZPS Trem.

The adjustment knobs on the back of the trem are really hard to turn compared to the Edge III on my RG370.

Is there something I can use to loosen them up or does is come from the factory tight so turning them back and for the a little will do the trick?

Maybe I just need to play it a little to loosen it all up..

Take the back plate off, you'll be able to get a better grip on the wheel.

Re: just got a RG350DMZ - Edge II trem question..

I might have been misleading on my original post - I mean the fine tuners. Some of them are really hard to turn. Wasn't sure if it was just something I could lube or something that by moving them would loosen up.

The Edge II looks completely different than the Edge III. My Edge III fine tuners are really easy to move, not so on my Edge II ZR.

Also, the Edge III is easier to pull down / back - is that just because of the string tension and design on the Edge II?

I'm going to take a closer look tonight, just wondering if there are any trem experts out there to offer some insight.

Thanks again!
