edge zero

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I'm starting from the assumption that you want the trem parallel to the guitar top, when 'at rest'. [Am I wrong in that ?] On an Edge (not Edge Zero), you adjust the spring reload to achieve this. An Edge Zero, is rather different. The trem block rests against the XPS3 rod, and you adjust the...

    Hey guys,my 3250mz's nut wont lock the E and A strings.Even if i overtighten the allen screws,it wont lock.I can change the tuning with machine heads after the nut is locked. I noticed that the screw that holding the nut to neck is not tightening the nut enough,its just goes inside a bit then...

    Morning all, Is there an easy way to change the springs used on the Edge Zero II trems? Since buying my RG6PCMLTD 2nd hand, it has never been a stable trem system. When you use the bar, it never returns to pitch. I'm not a newbie when it comes to floating trems - and my other guitars do not...

    I'm sorry if this has been covered a lot before, but if it has it seems like it was quite a while ago.. ok, I have an RG2550Z from 2009, it has the Edge Zero trem. when it came out the trem got a lot of stick for having the zero point system and it seemed everyone pretty much universally...

    I just scored a J Custom RG20126 SRU. I will take pics this weekend. Can I swap out the fine tuners and trem posts from the Edge Zero with the tuners and posts from an original Edge?

    These tuners are steel thumbscrews that screw into the alloy base-plate, operate under a fair amount of load, and get used quite a lot. My concern is that the threads in the base-plate will wear; and this will be difficult/expensive to repair. The obvious answer is to lubricate them. Anyone...

    Hello all. I have just received a second hand Ibanez RG350DXZ from a shop in the UK. I have been checking over for faults and I have found that the ZPS bar is at a crooked angle. Doesn't appear to be affecting the tuning so much, but I am worried about what would happen over a period of time...

    Just got a new guitar, after a while away from it all. Insane how these necks feel. I've never gotten over how most of the modern J Customs feel so easy to play. Plays really well compared to the RG760 I normally play. Pics:

    I have a spare prestige body that used to have Edge Zero...I'm thinking of getting Edge Zero II, mostly because of price and availability where I live. The big question is, are they interchangeable? Thanks!

    Hello guys! Today I tried to re-string my guitar (Ibanez RG350 with Edge Zero II) and when I got it, I saw that the bridge wasn't parallel with the guitar, so I had to adjust the bridge from the screw at the back of the guitar. I started moving that screw (image there) and nothing was happening...

    Hello gents. When I was just starting out, I lusted after an Ibanez RG350 in pure white. I loved the looks, the playability.... But the trem was god awful. It was likely an edge 3 so I was always put off it. I see that recently they have been shipping with Edge Zero II, this seems to have...

    So, I'm looking for a RG and have been looking for a 655 that has the original Edge which I know and love. I have also used an Edge Pro 7 that was a really good bridge too. In my search I found a great deal on a 1570z with an Edge Zero (yes, I know that is what the z stands for) and doing a...

    I know the sustain issue on S5470's has been around on this site and the Ibanez forum pretty much since the guitar came out. Many people have suggested dozens of different fixes (some silly, some not so). My post-2009 (when they introduced a new middle pickup) S5470 doesn't sustain well...

    Hi guys! Up for sale 6 Edge-Zero Saddles The saddles are in perfect condition. They are still on the tremolo and I'm selling them with the trem It was from my old RG2550Z. The base plate is broken, but you can use the screws, the intonation screw and the block with the springs if you wish...

    The Edge Zero has two springs on the back, and it's not possible to add/remove springs. One can only adjust the springs back and forth. Obviously, it's way less flexible than add/remove springs. So I ask: would the Edge Zero have enough room to adjust to a .007 gauge? (Yes it exists, and I use...

    Hey, I have an Ibanez RG1570Z, which the Edge Zero trem. It's been around two years with this guitar, and up until recently, it played like a dream. I prefer Standard-low action, .09-.42 string guage. Whenever I had to restring, I gave it to someone from a music store nearby (the only one in...

    Hi, I couldn't find this anywhere and just wanted to make sure. Are edge zero and edge zero 2 interchangeable? Is the edge zero II somehow better/worse in quality than the original? I need to replace the original and II is cheaper and easier to find.

    I can't seem to take this new JEM off my wish list and if purchasing one I would no doubt try the standard Edge Zero 2 first but, I've been upgrading the arms on my Edge/Edge Pro and Lo Pro Edge equipped guitars so would probably prefer this arm on one as well. If I understand correctly the...

    Hi! I have some doubts about the Zero Point System. Recently I have bought an RG2550Z. When it arrived I was struck by the fact that the bridge was not parallel to the body. I have always read about making them parallel on all Edge bridges. So I adjusted it to this position but then the stop...
