Re: Edge setup question
Hey, yeah - You can adjust it if you are positive the locking screws aren't there. You will find out quickly if the studs don't want to budge, so don't "force" it! Actually the edge is the only bridge with locking studs, even the Original floyd rose does not have them!
A lot of folks will want to loosen the strings to put less pressure on the knives/studs as you adjust the action. While many say that is overkill for the original edge (which is a bit stronger than other trems), it is necessary for cheaper trems, like the edge III and the trems on jacksons etc. BUT if you want to be on the safe side you can take of outer 2 SPRINGS in the back of the guitar to take off a bit of tension. If you take off the outer sPrings and don't loosen the sTrings, you won't need to worry about having to re-tune it!!
P.S: hey, I didn't know you actually had experience with floating trems! I just read the you "have always played Stratocasters" So I naively figured you have only ever played strats lol. 470s are nice guitars, you shouldn't have any trouble adjusting the action with the 550.
