My whammy in edge on my 570 is creaking! help!

This is very odd... Ever since i did the nail polish trick, my tremolo makes like a ratchet turning creak when i grab the trem?

Anybody know why? Could it be the bushings???

Thanks if you can help... much appreciated!

It may be bushings. I had one that squeaked on a Floral. New bushings worked for me. At the same time I replaced the bushings, I also tightened the trem shaft. I little sewing maching oil helps on all the areas that have metal to metal contact. Especially if you are one of them "Corrosive Sweater" sort of people.

Click on Rich's Ibanez Rules link, go to the Tech page and look for the section on squeaky whammy bars.
