Help, Lo pro 1994 in 7v offset!!!

Hello

Delighted to be here is my first Post.

After a complete cleaning of the guitar, including the cleaning of the bridge, (The guitar was stored for 30 years) The touch, accommodation of the fingers on the mast, was perfect, the only exception, is that it was fluctuated intonation .

I found the problem that the tremolo is in high position, I can't find in the manual how to solve it, so that the guitar is untouchable.

It is like the springs do not pull the tremolo, to adjust horizontally. All the tests that have been done with the internal screws do not succeed either.

The pressures are very high now on the bridge, the vibrato lever is not smooth now.

Video is here:

I will post photos too


thank you

Re: Help, Lo pro 1994 in 7v offset!!!

It looks like you have a lot of room to tighten the claw springs, it's difficult to understand your English (google translate?) so I'm not entirely sure what you're saying. What string gauge is being used on the guitar? I would inspect to see if the trem is also sitting correctly on the trem posts first. From first glance it would just seem you need to tighten up the claw screws to increase the spring tension, making small adjustments and then re-tuning the guitar and repeating until the knife edge is parallel.

That will drop the action though the action looks like it may still be high when the bridge is level, to avoid wear/damage of the knife edges and posts you should remove the trem unit before adjusting the action with the trem posts (which are locking, so you need to also unlock them first). Once you have everything set and the guitar plays good (so bridge is parallel, action is good) then you should adjust the intonation.

Thank you very much for both answers and apologies for my English.

Indeed, he usually mounted about 0.9 of Addario and the problem came with about NYXL 10-46.

The bridge took off from one of the sides, so loosen everything quickly, so that it would not be damaged, later I disassembled all the parts to check it, apparently there is no damage, I also disassembled the two screws, bridge height adjustment screw, when disassembling check the anchor thread and it works well. Unfortunately I did not write down its correct placement (on one side it is hollow and on the other it is pointed) How to insert them correctly?

The hole inside the screw or the hole out?

To use the 0.10 string, would I need more springs? or another type of pier maybe shorter?

Thank you

In a guitar that nice, I'd install a Schaller sure claw. put one in my Roadstar 2 & my 520qs. The adjustment range is far superior to conventional claw screws.

As you can see, the notch to align the bridge is perfectly in place.

then I tighten the spring screws a couple of turns little by little

the result 24 hours later, it doesn't matter if you tighten the spring bolts a couple of turns, tighten them almost to the end.

Your springs in that video are almost as far out as they can go in the wrong direction to fix this problem.

This is what my Jem looks like, setup for 10-46 D'addarios. Ignore the backstop it's not even in use, doesn't affect the bridge in any way.

Your screws need to be screwed in, as you can see in the picture of my guitar. Your video shows your issue is normal because your screws for the tremolo claw are way too far out, there is no tension on the springs to hold the tremolo in place, you need to tighten them a lot so that it looks closer to the situation with my guitar.

I have to confess I don't know jems all that well. Are they the same body thickness as an RG?

The result is the same if i screwed to the top of the screwed capacity
