Problem with Ibanez RG320DX
Yesterday I bought a brand new RG320DX from Guitar Center, and played it for a good hour before I bought it. When I got it home, i noticed the strings tightened up and were a half step higher than they were when I tuned it in the store. I proceeded to change the strings, as per the instructions, because they were old and oxidizing.
i noticed today the Edge III tremolo has pulled all the way back by itself. this is why the strings tightened before, and and it's still doing it. i have loosened the strings, and they are currently in standard again, but the bridge will not go back to it's normal position. i have put the bar in and pushed it down gently, but it goes all the way back up.
i'm not sure if anybody here has had this problem, but i don't know what to do here. i'm fairly sure it's a problem with the springs, but i don't want to mess with it, because i've never dealt with a tremolo system like this before and i do not want to screw it up any more than what it already is.
