Unhappy Locking Stud Mod!!!

On Ibanezrules.com It goes into detail about the locking stud mod and how to install it and everything, I am getting a rg2550egk and want to install it on that edge pro but being 15 and my dad never touching a guitar we can't completely understand the explanation of everything.

Mostly we couldn't figure out does the kit include EVERYTHING needed to do the mod?

And if anyone has time to explain a little further the installation that would be cool, if not thanks for looking and considering the question.

Re: Locking Stud Mod!!!

If you know how to set bridge height than it is pretty easy.

The thing that Rich may not make clear is everything does not need to be overly tight when you do the mod.

Re: Locking Stud Mod!!!

Rich is going to send you 2 locking studs, the bottoms for the insert in case your are open and 2 L-keys ( small and big ). the new locking stud has a kinda of screw in the middle which you can turn with your Small L-key but before you do that make sure you got the bridge they way you like it. when you turn the screw of the stud down it will lock in to place not allowing the stud to move. this way general information tell your dad the purpose of the mod is that the new locking stud has that screw in the middle that connects with the bottom of the insert to lock it.

Re: Locking Stud Mod!!!

Nothing is locked into place until you use the 4mm wrench to take the slop out of the threads. That goes for a locking stud mod in an Edge Pro and well as a regular Edge or Lo Pro.

Re: Locking Stud Mod!!!

It's as self explanatory as I can make it. The stud isn't locked until the slop is taken out of the threads.
