Interesting thread as this is something I’ve been adjusting on my new early 2019 Jem 7v. I think my studs might be the non-locking variety as I was easily able to adjust bridge height with a 4mm key (without using a 1.5 first) from day 1. I haven't backed a stud out completely to check but when I pass a 1.5mm key down it doesn’t seem to mate with anything at the bottom of the stud. Mabye Ibanez have stopped using locking studs on these?

The studs do not come locked, they have to be locked after the guitar is setup.

That’s the thing- no obvious way to lock them as the small Allan key won’t engage in anything.

Re: Ibanez Edge original Bridge height adjustment

I can't explain why some people have so much trouble seating an allen wrench into the set screw. Possibly because after you do you'd have to spin it so many times to hit lock you don't think it's seated anyway. Try unwinding it, it's much closer to fully unlocked and will stop at fully unlocked letting you know, the wrench is seated.

Bit the bullet and removed bridge and studs to check. They are indeed locking screws and the 1.5mm key works. I think it’s because the tiny size key gives less tactile feedback and as you say it takes so many turns to tighten.
