RG1550MZ Issues

Hi guys. I have questions

1) What the hell is this ? "youtu.be/RPoyf2QAadg"(i couldnt link it cause of rules. Please copy paste) i have this ibanez for 3 weeks or so. This creepy thing happened today. I have no idea what to do. I tried to re lock and re lock trem arm, but it couldnt work.

2) imgur.com/NNoBsSj.jpg (couldnt post photo too)
This one is annoying me for real. Its a wood from the neck actually. But its the first time i see something like this on ANY guitar. Its a japan guitar, there shouldnt be any esthetical problem I THINK.

So, what should i do ? Should i want replacement from dealer ?



IF i shouldnt, i bought x2n and d activator x neck pups at the same time. But i have no experience on electronics. I'm barely settin my trem. And there's no one can do it. I'm in a small town. Can i do it by myself ? I dont want to harm my guitar

Hi, and welcome to Jemsite. The line on the neck is normal. It's like that on both 1550's I have owned. Your link does work, yeah I know, I deleted the . after the u.

I remember I could not get my tremolo arm to go into the guitar. I replaced the little gray plastic pieces with new ones and it worked.

Thank you. The problem is when i lock trem arm and move it to left and right, in some point it make noise like 'crrrrk'. Its probably from plastic too. But there should be easy solution. Maybe i locked wrong or angle problem etc. Actually i dunno where can i find that little piece.

That is the spring rubbing on the bar. Put a very small bit of grease in the bar detent, make sure it is in the detent only and doesn't get on the inside of the tube when you put it in. Put the bar in and spin it around a few times.
