Hipshot Tremsetter

Hey guys

Firstly having gone through this site back to front i managed to take my JEM555 to pieces including neck off and re-assemble it adjust truss rod intonate and balance the trem. So i am happy and gratefull. JEM is playing like a dream.

So my RG is on the bench in bits.. its was bought cheap of a guy who trashed it so am in the throws of completeing it now. Ive had to re align the neck using a buisness card as a shim and now the action is low and intonating is great.

The final job with it is getting the trem to hold its tuning, im guessing as its a cheaper Ibanez guitar, so the trem blades are worn its just not quite up to the job. So Im just about to install a hipshot tremsetter so will let you know how i get on with A0 the installation and B) how it turns out.

I read the forums here on all the other trem stabalizers etc but in the end this article won me over audiozone.dk/index-filer/Tremsetter.htm#frissues

so here goes !

Re: Hipshot Tremsetter

I've got two Hipshots and two Black Boxes. None of them really help that much. File the knife edges back into good shape and lubricate the contact point on the posts with chapstick. It does more good than any tremsetter I've ever installed.
