Re: Ibanez LO TRS trem on RG 470 (Japan)
thanks for the help guys
I chipped away as much paint as I could... i think i even enlarged the "entrance" lol
i'll give it a try once I get a hammer
about the nut: the original is gone. I used to over tighten the bolts and I stripped the threadding and I had to replace the nut. Un fortunately back then (this was like 1999, 2000) i didn't know about all these different dimensions and such... so I've been using an incorrect nut that was just toothin but it worked. Now I want to use the OFR nut. Even though the radius isn't the same its worked for the other guitar. But the OFR nut isn't flush with the neck, it's shifted towards the high e. I suppose I could re install the old one but I guess I wanted as many OFR parts as possible.
I want to sell the OFR nut (probably will have little luck) to fund the purchase of a correct nut size.
QUestion: this may be trivial, but how far do I hammer in the new studs? as low as they'll go? Screw in the posts to the bottom, hammer it in (with rubber hammer) as low as it goes?
EDIT: Removed the old studs, just have to enlarge the hole to 10mm Diameter
