Edge III arm trouble
Just bought an RGT42DX, nice guitar with crap stock pickups which will upgrade as soon as more $$ comes in!
Having a problem with the EdgeIII trem arm - I got the gtr without an arm, and picked up a replacement from Guitar Center (part #2LE2-1B), Unfortunately this replacement arm doesn't fit into the socket. It stops when the 1st washer is halfway down the socket. No visible damage to the socket, but putting a dowel into the socket shows there's a good 1/2 inch further (or more) that the arm could have gone in.
Ibanezrules.com states that the correct replacement arm for the Edge III is a 2EL2C1B (but they're backordered now). Can anyone shed further light on the subject? Do I in fact need to use a different part #? Or are the 2LE2-1B's a universally usable arm?
