RG770dx - Edge Trouble
I'm brand new to your site, and I've done the best that I could using the search tool to find the answer to me troubles, before deciding to post the issue I've been having. You've put together quite the killer batch of info on these forums, and I look forward to reading more in the near future.
The issue that I'm having is with my RG770dx Prestige Tremolo.
I've had a few buddies look at it, and a guitar tech have a look at it, and they seem baffled. It falls out of tune worse than any other tremolo we've seen. After making a few adjustments, we've manage to stop strings from - one-at-a-time going out of tune. Now they're going flat together and going sharp together. If I pull back, then I have to dive a bit to compensate to get it to come back in tune, and then need to pray that one string isn't worse off then the others.
I've stretched the strings for 2 weeks +, with plenty of use. I'd even sat in front of a movie and just tugged on them and stretched them every which proper way I've used with other systems.
From what I gather, this is an original edge tremolo. Given how far things have come along through minor adjustments attempted, it feels there may be more that can be adjusted to fix the issue. I read the chapstick trick and am looking to give it a go, but is there anything mechanical that should be adjusted I guess would be what I'd like to know about.
An alternative I've been looking into as well would be dropping an OFR into her. Any unforseen trouble with doing so, would be neat to get a heads up on.
Anyway, thank you all a whole hell of a lot, and thanks too for any leniency with the newbie post. Links to other threads where I can find potential solutions are mega appreciated too.
