Re: Edge3 Replacement Tremolo (no mod-free upgrade except EdgePro)

The only complaint that's real is the cost of the replacement bushings. If you want to bitch about that I'd be by your side. Otherwise, there is no problem with the push in setup if you know what you're doing, and the bushings will last a long time if handled right.

I've replaced an edge 3 with an ofr and it won't return to pitch after using the trem arm. It goes ever so slightly sharp if I sharpen the notes and returns to normal pitch if I flatten the notes!
I'm thinking it's the original edge 3 bridge posts/studs that are the issue because the ofr is brand new!
Any advice on what to do or where to buy a better non-invasice replacement would be appreciated!

I think I recall in this chat or another one about the Edge III, that someone found maybe the schaller posts fitted the Edge III bushings. It may be worth doing a search around the forum. It was some time ago though.
