Tremolo tension

Hey everyone.

I have an ibanez prestige rg1520a installed with an edge pro trem
it is setup with gauge 10-52 (hybrid set) in d standard tuning.
now the trem is fairly stiff (which is no problem since i use it for bend-like things and vibrato and not divebombs) and it is installed with 3 springs. the claw is screwed in to where you can only see few mm of the "twisted" part of the screws.
is this bad? its my first trem so i have no experience. should i loosen the claw and install more springs?

Re: Tremolo tension

If it's floating where it should be, then you're OK. Make sure that the BASEPLATE of the Edge is parallel to the body, and not the TOP WEDGE. If this is good, and you stay in tune, there is no need to adjust the claw screws from where they are.
