So I'm reading Ibanezrules.com, and Rich says to go buy chapstick to help fix tuning instability problems for the lo pro edge.
My guitar was getting pretty bad. Those who have kept up with my other threads know I've been having some tuning instability, which has worsed since i started trying to install the backstop and changing bridge height, action etc.
Anyway, I'd say my bridge return was about 95%, and sometimes after pulling up, strings would stay a half a semitone sharp. That was just brutal and it seemed to be getting worse and worse. Nothing was working.
Anyway, I went to the store, bought regular chapstick (the black tube), no colours/flavours, and rubbed it into the trempost pivot points with a toothpick (of course, the tremposts were turned out 180% for easy access as Rich recommend). I did both sides, then whammied my guitar 20 times or so to work it in.
! problem virtually solved...I still have a TINY bit of tuning instability, but only a few cents...its at least 98% accurate, possible 99%. I have a very discriminating ear, and I haven't been this satisfied with my bridge return in a long time. There's still a bit of room for improvement, but I can easily live happily ever after like that.
For those doubters, take it from me. Listen to Rich! This guy knows his stuff, and I owe him big time. The real purpose of this thread is gratitude to him.
However, as much as you all probably know about this fix, I want to take this opportunity to HIGHLY recommend trying this if you're having instability of some sort. It worked wonders for me, and it'll do the same for you in all likelyhood. And it costs a few bucks, and about 3 minutes of time. I was sure i would need to file the knife edges.
Let's just hope it stays working well, particularly with my ongoing fight with the backstop .LOL!
