Problem with my J-custom EDGE Pro Trem =(
yesterday I replaced the 'stock' strings [most probably .46 -. 09] to Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom strings [what i normally use. - (.52 - .10) - tuned th Drop C]
So after reading and remembering how to change strings on a floyd [Edge pro BTW] it as successful, and obviosuly setting up was as usual.
So It's all tuned and ready to go again, and I do a few runs/licks/scales etc, and then decided to run through a solo that i use in my band's song which requires the use of whammy in..
Then I go and whammy, and the D + G strings are going out of tune... so I keep whammy etc, and both are way out of tune. The E + A and B + high E strings are fine, but those two keep getting detuned or sharpened when whammy up and down.
Therefore I decided to unlock the nut redo the setup and tuning, and again it's ready to go. So I started whammy, the same. I repeat this Process a number of times. I also tighten the Saddles tighter, and the locking nut quite tight - as I thought they weren't tight enough maybe and would cause it out of tune.
So what is the problem with the Edge pro itself? I'm thinking it's the tension caused by me putting much heavier strings on! But I only have 3 holes for 3 Springs in the tremolo cavity. But 3 springs should be able to cope with 3 sprins. My other guess is that, I haven't streched the strings good enough, and when whammying, the strings are stretching causing it detune/sharpen the note etc etc.
But today i satrted streching a bit more, and wasn't bad, But the trem is still going out slightly! any ideas?
Please help and thanks
