Re: Is this right?
That actually looks fine to me. The knives look parallel to the body and perpendicular to the posts. Buzz could be the action or any number of things.
I think that "thing under the locking screw" is just the spring for the fine-tuner.
With the glue in there, I think that's pretty much ruined the inside paint job and possibly the wood. I have no doubt you can undo that pretty easily, though with some damage.
The trem isn't in the best of shape either so you can take the plunge and make it a nice refin project.
