Edge Pro Zero Point

Hey everyone. Got a jem recently. Its been a real struggle. Any help is greatly appreciated. I installed the tremol-no aligned everything and the bridge is perfectly parrallel. Everything looks good. When I use the whammy bar, it never returns back to zero point. Its always either higher or lower thus taking me out of tune whenever I use the tremolo. I figured what Rich says is wrong with my knife edges is true and the need to be lubed up. So I take the bridge out lube everything just as he says and still nothing. Im losing hope here.

Thanks

Cristian

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

Your problem is probably the T-No, not aligned, not lubed, just not letting the trem return right.

I took the t-bar out and just had the claw and springs and still the same thing. I dont know how else Im supposed to "align" the t-no. Ive done everything the video says on youtube and researched so much.

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

If the T-No is out then your problem obviously lies elsewhere. You'd have to explain exactly how it goes out of tune when you do exactly what.

When I bring the tremolo up and lower the pitch of the strings, the bridge stays a little higher and the notes go flat. When I bring the treomol down towards the cavity to make the notes sharp, the bridge stays a little lower and the notes are sharp.

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

Only tune after a dive so the bridge can only go sharp on pullup. Past that i'd be looking for something binding, touching, rubbing, something.

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

Is this a NEW guitar? If not, my thought is that the knife edges on the trem could be worn.

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

I have to ask, why have you made so many threads for this same issue? You've got like 3 or 4 now. Please in future stick to just the one thread. No need to clog it all up with multiples. All the information you receive is scattered across them and hard to keep up with. You end up with multiples of the same advice.

Re: Edge Pro Zero Point

Too flat. It should have a slight forward tilt.
