Edge Pro Stability
I've developed a problem with my Edge Pro bridge that I'm at a loss to fix. Specifically when dive-bombing, the bridge does not want to come back into tune. It will remain significantly flat until I pull up on the bridge, after which it snaps back into tune more or less perfectly. It's an interesting problem to me, as I can abuse pulling up on the bridge to my heart's content without any tuning problems whatsoever. I can grab the guitar by the bar and shake it if I so desire and it will barely be sharp immediately after release, falling even more perfectly in tune after a moment of regular playing.
But when I use even minor depresses on the bar, my guitar will remain noticeably flat. When performing I basically developed a technique to end any dives with a quick pull up to help get back in tune. However, this is a little limiting from a musical standpoint!
I don't expect literal perfection, but as-is I don't feel comfortable using dives when recording or performing. And what's the point of a locking trem if you can't dive bomb? Some additional information, if it helps:
-The guitar is an RGAR42MFMT modded with the Edge Pro. I did not do the mod myself.
-I use 10-52 gauge strings and four springs.
-The trem cavity had to be sanded down a bit to fit the Edge Pro. The bridge consequently sits slightly leaning forward as opposed to totally flat, so that I can have more pull-up range. I could have it sit totally flat if I wanted, but then when pulling up the trem block runs into the wood and I can't pull up as much as I'd like.
I truly appreciate any guidance on this issue. Thanks in advance!
