Ibanez Edge Intonation Tool

I've never intonated a guitar before but I would like to learn how. What does an intonation tool for an Ibanez Edge look like? How does it help you? Where can you buy one? Do you even need one to intonate an Edge properly?

It just makes the job a little easier to do. It looks like this:

This one is for a floyd rose, I'm not sure if it works on the edge. It's from stewmac.

Use the search feature--this has been asked and answered a few times and includes info on the Edge, too.

That tool doesn't work for Ibanez Edge, Schaller or Gotoh trems, only trems strictly made like the OFR.

Thanks, actually I did search and read quite of a few of them. Seemed like the answer was you can't buy these any more and the ones at stewmac don't work on an edge.

Sorry I probably poorly titled this thread. Really I was mostly curious how does this tool help you? I mean what is the gain of using the tool.

Re: Ibanez Edge Intonation Tool

The OFR tool doesn't fit right at all, but it will work of you don't mind it scratching up the cosmo on the butt of your trem.

The tool holds the saddle in place with full string tension and allows you to move the saddle precisely at pitch. It can be handy on trems where the fine tuner is exposed with the tool on, [Edge, Edge Zero, etc.] but the Lo Pro tool is a pain as it covers the fine tuners so you can't use them, and IMO the fine tuners are more important in setting intonation than having a tool hold the saddle, especially when you can detune by clamping the bar on the body at full dive and have everything retuned faster than you can with the tool on.

Re: Ibanez Edge Intonation Tool

Scratching up my trem doesn't exactly sound like my cup of tea.

Somewhere I read they don't make these tools for the edge anymore. Don't suppose you have any of the Edge intonation tools even though your parts page says discontinued.
