Unhappy URGENT-RG7620 problem- help please!

Hallo..
Today i recieved my first 7 string..
a RG7620GN..
it has travelled for 36 days from United States to Serbia..
I bought it unseen..through a middle man heer from Serbia..
I have received it today..ina a nice Ibanez case..with guarantee..wrenches and stuff..
The guitar looks totaly new..even the frets have no wear..
And it looks REALLY BEAUTiFULL..!!!

But..

BUT..
i have a problem, that worries hell out of me!
Concirning trem use..
And i am not new to a lo pro edge..i had 2 guitars with it already..
But..

When i do a deeper dive with an arm, a CLANG can be heard..
And then, when i instantly do a pull up, there is another ne..
I think that the sound is coming from the locking nut area..
The nut is doing its locking function properly..so its not the problem..
Also, when the nut is not locked, the CLANG can be heard..maybe less frequent..

I tried to hold fingers of my left arm on the strings behind the nut, between the locking nut and tuning pegs, while i try to dive..and i can feel a slight release during the CLANG while doing dive..like the tension is releasing there on the strings..although it can not be noticed in tonal aspect..

Is this the neck problem..?

Is this fixable..?

Please, PLEASE, someone help me..
URGENTLY!!!

THANK YOU

Re: URGENT-RG7620 problem- help please!

just sounds like the screws that hold the nut to the neck need tightening a tad. i had this problem with my 550, my friend had it with his 350 aswell. just tighten to screws a tad

The nut is loose, look at the back of the neck near the nut and find the two screws, loosen them a little and press the nut flush with the fretboard and tigheten them up 1/2 turn per screw till they are firm but not too tight "Dont crank it" and you should be done

Sounds travel strangely through the guitar, i had a problem with the nut on my EBMM and i couldnt for the life of me work out where it was coming from.

The nut sounds like the culprit, but have you checked the springs to make sure theyre sitting properly?

Nice, I have a GN too, they're actractive guitars. I know that when I tightened the back of the nut on my 7620s, it made the guitars stay in tune better. I hope this problem you have will go away. I hope it's not a severe problem with the trem. Lo Pro Edges are durable and great so maybe it is a problem with the nut.......
