Re: in tune?

I think you need a Wilkinson style bridge, and a new nut and tuners.

Yeah I read the trem is awful, so I think installing a tremsetter or just using the trem minimally would be the cheapest options.

It's also a shame that Ibanez just didn't leave well enough alone and stick with the edge
