    Hey I used the search but could not find the thread where someone modded an Edge pro so that it would imitate the screw on whammy bar of an Original Floyd Rose Bascially I am fed up with my edge bar going all wobbly and when ever I abuse the whammy bar I notice it starts to slide out of its...

    OK...so I've got my lovely RG570GN, and it's working out beautifully. However, I've heard some horror stories about the cosmo hardware; e.g. they are particularly susceptible to damage/scratches/etc. So, what's the best way to clean this hardware finish without fearing damage or the...

    Hi everyone I just got a nice RG from 1993 with an edge (i beleive it's a 470) it plays beautifully But it came with no locking studs. I mean, theres is hole in each of the trem posts, but they're both empty. I beleive the previous owner removed them for some reason. Could anyone give me the...

    In the last few months I have heard that some guitars like for example bc rich mockingbird st have a "ping" original floyd rose and that it is not very stable, but I thought OFR were made in Germany by schaller, so whats the deal? is the ping one like the Floyd Rose II?

    This is a RG from a local seller. I think it's a 450 or an old 550 (with the old V1, V2 & S1 pu's) But i'm not shure. I have never seen a 550 with that colour / pickguard. And what about the trem ? is it the dreaded TRS(II) or a (Lo) pro edge ? The pictures is all the usable info i got right...

    Hi Guys, I tried to restring my guitar for the first time, and had a horrible experience. I had to take all the strings off as I wanted to remove the pickguard to check something so this is why all the strings had to come off. So I went about restringing it, which I've never done on an Egde...

    Just thought I'd share my next project. I've always wanted a jem but as you all know the are expensive! I have decided to build my own jem. I ordered a Jem body from Chris Woods, and am looking at vine/maple necks. going to swirl it and put quality parts in. I may be selling it in the near...

    I was wondering how the finish is holding up on JS2PRM's that are played, or even on the many unplayed ones, any info out there?

    Hey hey, I'm currently building a project RG based off of a RG-120 which came with a standard strat-style tremolo. I've ordered a super wizard neck and plan to use the locking nut, but since this bridge has no fine tuners I'm worried about stability once I lock down the strings at the nut...

    whats the point of having a Fixed edge bridge? a double locking fixed bridge guitar is just pointless. Re-stringing a trem sucks as is let alone doing it on a guitar that you can't crank on the trem arm afterwards. http://www.ibanez.com/eg/series.aspx?s=mtm

    So i just bought a new jem brmr and while im really quite happy with it i think that the edge pro trem thats in it just isnt for me, ive played on older edge trems and had been very happy with them, so i looked through the trem section on the site and didnt see anything about the edge pros, but...

    Hey, just wondering if anyone has ever seen an NOS original edge (not the new ones or reissues or anything) on E-B-A-Y or for sale online anywhere? is it possible to find "NOS" ones at all, or is your only luck to get a used one. Lol, don't bother asking me why I want an NOS one, but anyways...

    I have a an Ibanez GIO guitar, and i want to change the FAT 10 bridge over to one of the Ibanez EDGE trems, or any of the ibanez styled Floyd Roses for this guitar. Can someone point to a site page to tell me the specs of those bridges so i can start searching for one?

    I'm wondering if there is anyway to identify what year an edge or edge lo-pro is from? Is there even anything to distinguise reissues from origionals? thanks

    So basically, I'm thinking of getting a Xiphos now, and a few months down the road, swapping the Edge III for an OFR. Is this actually possible to do a direct swap or is there routing? Is it a Schaller Floyd or an Original Floyd? Also, there are no stores within 100 miles of me that stock...
