Re: Problem with Lo-Pro Edge

If it is not adjusted by you then you can go to where you have bought this guitar.

Problem with Lo-Pro Edge


Every time I tune my JEM7V-WH (2001 model) and do a dive bomb, everything goes flat. And if I pull the bridge up after that, everything goes sharp (back to where it originally was). I have not faced this issue before. It started to happen after I had adjusted string height, so I'm guessing it could have something to do with that. What should I do?


I realize I wasn't being very clear. Here's an example of what happens:
-I tune the guitar normally
-Do a dive bomb
-After the bridge returns to parallel level with the body, everything has gone slightly flat
-And if I pull the bridge up, everything goes back to where it originally was (or very close to it, at least)

I purchased the guitar earlier this year, and I've had 0 issues with it thus far. Though one thing I guess I should mention; I don't think the locking screws inside the studs were tightened by the previous owner. When I adjusted the action earlier today, I was following the instructions Rich has on his site. The instructions say to loosen the locking screw. I'm pretty sure it was already loose (on both sides). I did tighten them when I was done adjusting the action, and I did not use any serious force.
