My new RG-350DX bridge ?s

Hey guys,

I'm new to Ibanez gits... and floyd roses. Yesterday, I wanted to tinker around so I just started messing with the bridge to understand the design of this instrument. Took off the 2 springs from the back and whoa!... the whole bridge is loose and falls out real easy... Is it supposed to do this? Anyway, I changed strings, and tuned it, it seems to hold tune well.

Anyway, I've read on here that the Edge3 trems suck. I guess my main question is I know you CAN replace the bridge, but HOW do you replace the bridge? Is it as easy as just pulling it out, dropping a new one in and screwing in the 2 studs? and you're done?

thanks.

Re: My new RG-350DX bridge ?s

Depends on how you want to replace it. There are 2 ways you can go about doing it.

1: just take out the old one, and drop in the new one.

2: If yours come with the locking studs (Read Gotoh or Edge), you can pull out the old bushings, drill a bigger hole, and hammer in the new bushings, and put the trem in with your new locking studs.
