RG350 w/ZPS3, fine tuners a little hard to turn

What are your thoughts on the RG350 with the new ZPS3? I have to say, overall, I'm quite happy. This plays every bit as well as the Prestige I had and I can't believe they are not still making the RG350 with ZPS3 - all for under $400.00.

I had a question, the ZPS3 fine tuners on each string are difficult for me to turn compared to my Edge III RG370.

Is this by design or should they turn every bit as smooth? Is there something I can do to loosen then up? I've tried turning them back a forth a little (its a new guitar), but to no avail - still very stiff.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Alan

I am also finding the fine tuners a little stiff on the RG1xxv trem. Any tips would be great

Just keep fu*king with them. They'll loosen soon enough.

I have also noticed this on every EZ, EZII or ZR that I've ever played. They all have really crappy fine tuners.

Also, they do still make that guitar. It's the RG450 now

Agreed, you need to finger around with them. Remember, the old rg's took quite some playing too, before the thread on the fine tuners became wide as an irish broad's arse
