Re: Edge 3 tremolo
IMO the Edge 3 Is Fine, when Set up Correctly.
1. The "Arm Pop-Out Can Be Fixed By Tightening a Grub Screw Placed Under The Arm Collar.
2.It Shoud Pe Angled With a Little Dive, So That the Arm Height Lines Up With The Hole On The Back Plate.
Its A fine Trem When Set up well, and if You Use grease on the Knife Edges It Will Hade An even smoother Action. My RG08LTD Has A Gold Edge 3, And I Haven't Had To Tune using The Tuner End In 3 Months (Including Gigs). Note: I have Done The Trem Setup Myself, I'm not a guitar Tech and The guitar hasn't ever been Setup By a Techie.
Using Those rules I Got My other Chinese Licensed Floyd Rose (£13!) on My EVH Replica To work Like a Dream Too!
Saying The Edge 3 is AWFUL isn't Really Usefull, Its Just The Way Certain Ones Are Set-up (e.g. some techies might not know that they need a slight dive.)
IMO It's Smoother and more Comfortable Than The Original Floyd Rose, but thats me lol.
Anyways im not an Expert
