Original Edge touching body.
Hi everyone, the underside of the original edge tremolo on my Genesis RG550 is touching on the body (in between the pivot studs of the tremolo) albeit very slightly, it is enough to disrupt smooth tremolo operation or maybe uneven wear on the knife edges.
I believe I am not the only one since my guitar is good as new and seldom used. It's just manufactured too close to the tremolo body.
This problem can be solved by just removing some wood off of the body where it is directly below the tremolo in between the tremolo studs.
My question is, what would you guys normally do to solve this problem? Would it decrease the overall value of my guitar of I were to remove some materials off from the body below the tremolo?
