setting the trem angle...questions
Hi all...well, I've finally changed a stringe on my RG with an Edge Pro trem....wow, I thought tuning the thing was tricky, but this is something else entirely!...I'm getting the hang of tuning now, but I did bust a new string by tightening the screw at the bridge a hair too tight...my bad, but I had enough slack to restring the same string and the day was saved.
And now I've noticed the trem angle is up even a lil more than it was before (which was still a lil higher than it should have been). I've been to the ibanez rules website, but can't seem to get a good handle on this adjustment.
Is it simple to do?...as far as I can tell, you just screw the two claws in the back a quarter turn each at a time time the trem angle is near neutral....but wouldn't that neccesitate retuning the guitar again, which might raise the trem angle yet again?...I ask because I can tune my guitar now, but the trem angle is high when it's finally tuned nicely...I've tried detuning the low E to the point where the trem angle is quite below neutral but by the time I've tuned up, I back to the higher than neutral angle that I started with. I know I'm a noob at floating trems so I know it's a time in thing....can't wait to get better and faster at it!
The main prob with having the trem angle high is that now the trem bar rubs against the volume knob when I swing it out of the way...so I've gotta bite the bullet and adjust the angle myself.
Any tips? Links? Pics? Thanks!
