No **** Sherlock lol. I wanted the money to go to Steve's pocket! Aside from the knife edge, it's been an amazing guitar that's got me through almost 11 years of constant gigging and practice. And I...

Agree and it's total bull****. They made the knife edge replaceable, but you can't buy them. Hey thanks! I've tried dealers, Ibanez themselves, luthiers, ect. Now I either need a new trem or install...

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Great tips! I was wrong about the edge pro, its an edge. It's funny but as many times as I've changed strings I've paid little to no attention to the saddle tightness as it was always fine. One of...

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Rich, Ross and Webmaestro you guys nailed it! Thanks so much! The saddles were loose and moved on me. That explains why the string got so physically loose without the locks, lock pad, springs,...

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

My bad! I referenced Jemsite's Jem info and it said they were Edge Pro's from 2003-present. But Ibanez.com does say Edge. I should've known that either way lol Locking studs!

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Well the first time it happened was only about 3 weeks after buying the guitar. I had barely played it because of work. I tuned it down and made sure the nuts were good. The low E dropped so far...

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Tried a couple of nut tensions, and it didn't seem to matter. I noticed with the last episode, the nuts were definitely tight. (not string-crushingly over-tight, mind you)

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

It seems like multiple strings, mainly low E and high E. I'm not sure if the A and B are going out just out of sympathy or the tension that is loosening. lol

Re: 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Yep it doesn't seem to be related to changing strings. They will be on for 2 months and suddenly it goes wonky. It's like something suddenly "gives" and it the strings go flat.

Unhappy 7VWH Edge Pro issue? Random tuning problem

Re: The JEM guitars are not "Signature Model" guitars.

The "Jem Jr's" 555's had Vai's name on them.

Eb tuning a Jem 7VWH - Truss rod question I think!

I'm attempting to tune my new Jem 7VWH down to Eb. When I did it loosened the tension on the bridge (obviously) and pulled the angle back some. I want to straighten it out and get the proper string...
