Talking RG350 Trem Arm floppy-ness

Hey, I'm sure ya'll are tired of this question by now..but I'm gonna ask it anyway .
I have an RG350DX and love everything about it...even the Edge3 (although I do plan to replace with an edge pro, when I have the cash). But, I hate, I repeat HATE the floppy arm on the trem!!!! When I first got the guitar, the first thing I did was tighten the arm holder socket...Now after a couple of months it's loose again and the socket can't be tightened any more, of course. Are there any tricks to make the bar stay tight, like Satriani's?

You tightened the set screws on the back of the holder?

Re: RG350 Trem Arm floppy-ness

I think so! unless there's another one behind the tremolo cover! The only thing I know of is the one you can get to by diving the bar and tightening the little screw found there. I'm new to all the floating trem crazyness, so i'm sure there is probably a way to take care of this that i have no clue about!

There's one at the top and one at the bottom of the holder. When thightening them no longer work you need to replace the bushing inside the holder, which means you have to pull the whole trem apart to get to it.
