floating tremolo

  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hello everyone, hoping you can help! I just got my first Jem, the 7VWH. I love it! Big problem happened today though, in 15 years of playing guitar Ive never seen this and I have no clue what to do about it. The 7v must come with super lite 8 gauge strings because I bought 9's today to put on it...

    Does anyone have a link to a video or instructions to setting up a floating trem on the Jem Jr. 555? I bought one used and it sounds great, however, I took all the strings off to clean it thoroughly and put new strings on it but can't for the life of me get the floating trem adjusted properly...

    Has anyone out there installed anything to make their floating tremolo a little less "floating?" I have a pair of something called the Goldo Back Stop, and so far this project isn't going as easy as planned. For starters, the instructions are in German. I'm wondering if anyone else has gone...

    I have a RG2550 Prestige that comes with Edge Pro, I've noticed that the tremolo bar that comes with it is significantly heavy that it affects tuning stability. I have noticed the Edge Pro itself is a rather heavy tremolo unit so tuning is affected when the angle of the guitar changes while...

    I have recently switched from using fixed-bridge guitars to a double-locking edge-pro system.. I've just bought an RG2570E and have come across a slight problem with "unison bends".. say for example I'm bending the E note on the G string (fret 9) upto an F# (fret 11), and playing an F# (fret 7)...

    To begin, I love the S-series, I have a 370 with ILT2 Bridge. The shape and look of S-model is perfect, I think the best guitar Ibanez have ever come up with. And they sound great! But one thing i dont understand. They used to make S with Lo-Pro Edge but now when they invented this ZR tremolo...

    I have an RG4EXQM1 and I believe the bridge that it came with is an Edge 3. (Please correct me if I'm wrong) What would be the next step up for an upgrade, without having to worry about space issues. I'd like something that will just drop right in with no mods. Thanks!

    hey guys, I have an RG321 body(hardtail) and a floating tremolo style neck on the same guitar. Does it really matter whether I get F-spaced or not? I'm looking at getting a white dimarzio tone zone, but no one seems to have f-spaced in stock, but everyone seems to have regular in stock. Thanks...

    I watched a demo off a new tremolo which wont get out of tune, even if a string breaks. They called it StepMax. Anyone tried it? http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession3.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession2.mov http://sleipnerguitars.com/movies/jamsession1.mov :D No one...

    Just wondered what the rg450's are like. Are they a cheaper version of say a 550? Anyone here got one? Heres one for sale Item number: 190203389360 thanks

    Hello All, Are either of these guitars suitable for a beginner? One of the reasons I am looking at either is that that have quite thin necks. I already have a Gibson Studio, but the neck is too thick and the guitar is way too heavy

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    Anybody know if it is possible to convert the ZR trem screw in bar to the type that pushes in, like the original edge? Thanks. Monte

    I am selling my Marlique Deluxe guitar after a year of owning her (Picking up my RGA121 this saturday!). It's a pretty much unknown guitar in the UK (and world wide) but according to their website ( www.marliqueguitars.com ) the guitars are hand made in Indonesia - but the build quality is...

    I have some questions before I do this. I've heard from some that I should leave the nut unlocked overnight after tuning and stretching, so I? What does this do? Also, let me make sure my procedure is okay, I looked on Rich's site for some help too. -Re-string one at a time, from high E to low...

    I just read a couple threads on this, but I haven been able to find an accurate/specific features pf each one, and what one has that the other does... I don't know how the backstop works either... Do they both do the same thing? Can someone help me out?
