Re: Problem with the angle of my Edge Zero trem
As a fellow EZ user, I must tell you this:
1. When you have engaged the ZPS, the angle of the tremolo system doesn't matter. While a normal double-locking system requires a 90 degree angle for perfect equilibrium, the ZPS is not limited to two forces - there is a third counterbalance, the stop-bar. Ignore the angle, as it doesn't matter. Set the guitar up so the tremolo system "hugs" the stop bar, without pushing it outside of its rests.
2. If you hate the feel of the ZPS, simply remove the two smaller springs with your bare hands. When you have removed it - the EZ becomes a normal double-locking trem, and angle DOES matter. In this case, you would need to have the trem parallel to the body.
