    Hey, I finally got a UV7BK and when taking it apart for cleaning, I noticed the string blocks were oriented with the hole/indentation away from the body which felt wrong, but I can't remember what the correct orientation is. Well, what is it? A vs B:

    I recently got a RG370AHMZ in Silver Wave Black. (Which is a very sexy guitar by the way.) I love it, but my only two problems are; 1. I can't lower the middle pickup very far, which both causes it to get in the way and reduces the sound options. 2. When palm muting, I end up pushing the edge...

    I have an RG652AHM with an Ibanez Edge bridge tuned to E with 10-46 strings. I have the bridge parallel with the body like it should be and I've tried blocking it with a bunch of different things, and I want to block it on both sides so it acts like a hardtail and I am able to do things like...

    Preferably a beveled block, but not a necessary condition.

    I have been using for quite some time replacement blocks for all my edges and lo pro edges trem units. I have them in Brass and Titanium combined with Brass and Titanium claws as well. Must say I love them... In particular the brass ones. Does anyone here tried the Stone Tone Sustain Block For...

    Hey, so I'm actually retrofitting the Edge III into a cheapie RG270. I know, I know, everyone hates the Edge III but it was a whole $40. Anyway, the problem i'm running into is that the Edge III's block strangely runs aaalllll the way across the underside of the bridge. Well, since the RG270...

    Hi all, i have always used a trem-stopper on my floyds i.e making it dive only by locking the springs down against it. Recently i decided i wanted to turn my guitar into a hardtail. I have it locked against the trem stopper as always, but now i have also used wood shims and put them in against...

    I still have some experimentation to do but I'm in the process of making a sustain block for the ZRII and my S5470. I bought a "parts" ZRII trem that's missing a few parts so I could mock things up. I may end up purchasing a beat up ZR-capable S body that'll help with figuring out clearance...

    For the first time in my life i have just fully blocked the tremolo on my 7 string Ibby. Was tempted to buy another fixed bridge Ibanez to go along with my floating one. Whats the opinion of you guys on blocking floyds vs having a fixed bridge? Curious to hear what opinions you all have...

    For sale is my Tremol-no. It is as new still in box with all parts. I bought it and never actually used it! It is the 'small claw' type. Msg me with any questions at all!!

    I bought an Ibanez XPT700 a while ago, and I really love the trem, but i'm getting annoyed cause my band's tuning varies from C standard to E Standard, and i'm tired of only using my XPT for the E standard song, and my White RG for the C standard tunings, and My black RG (Edge II) trem for the D...

    Hey guys, so I just installed a Floyd Upgrades Big Block on my Ibanez RG550. It really made the guitar come alive! I did a video review and installation tutorial on my youtube channel: Thanks for watching!

    I'm thinking about getting a replacement trem block for my 2550, but shipping to here and customs taxes would be high, so I thought about having it made locally. Anyone knows screw spacing, hole size and thread? Also, it looks like holes are sunk on both ibanez and FU, why is that? This pic...

    OK, sorry for the maybe misleading title but I couldnt explain it there. You know about the tremol-no kind of device that comes with the ZPS tremolos on the RG1570's. That thing that will make the floating bridge much more stiffer than it should to keep tuning better. Well, I didnt care until...

    Hey guys, I need string holder blocks for and Edge III trem. I would buy from the US but the shipping is a bit hefty for such a small piece. I contacted the rep thats listed on the Ibanez Australian website and he quoted me to get new saddles altogether and to order them from Japan or US...
