Trem angle

Hi guys

Maybe someone can help me settle a slight difference of opinon (regarding trem angle) between me and the repair guy at a music shop where I recently bought an Ibanez RG2820.

The trem is the new edge pro that comes fitted on the prestige guitars.

If I have understood the information about trem angle at Ibanezrules.com
correctly, the small line on the side of the trem is where the knife edge is press fitted into the trem. It is this line which should be set parallel to the trem posts (and hence parallel to the guitar body) This results in the trem sitting parallel to the guitar body on the new edge pro trem and not angled up out of the body as is the case on the older trem models.

http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/angle.htm

The repair guy said that this is not the case and set the guitar up with the trem angled up out of the body.

Appreciate your help

You'll either have to train this tech or find a better one, he obviously doesn't know what he's talking about.

Thanks for the reply Rich!

I'm afraid that up here in the north of Sweden there aren't many techs to chose from. I guess I should start studying the information here and at ibanez rules more closely so that I can make adjustments myself. Is there a good book anyone would recommend?

So does the edge pro sit at the same angle as the edge? I have'nt played an edge pro as of yet,and have only seen one at a distance

No, it's the lowest profile version yet and the baseplate is virtually parallel to the body.

Just realised that I made a slight error in my original post I wrote

"It is this line which should be set parallel to the trem posts (and hence parallel to the guitar body)"

Of coarse I meant perpendicular to the posts not parallel , but you you probably worked that out for yourself!

I knew what you meant, and if it was parallel, you'd have more trouble than I could solve!
