    Hi folks. I am new to the world of floating trems and relitively new (18 months in!) at guitar playing in general. Recently bought an RG with the cheapy edge III bridge. I am finding when bending strings, particularly in the higher registry, that the trem tilts forward and puts the other...

    Need a second oppinon about trem springs. Just got this baby of teh bay RG7620BK. Guy had it strung with 10-46 + 56 for the low B. I switched it over to 9-46+56 for the low B. Bridge looks like this: when trem claw looks like this: Im going to go out on a limb and say that something...

    First I'd just like to say that this is not a for sale advert or anything like that, I just have no idea how much my guitar is worth and I'd like to try and find out so that I don't ask too much or too little for it if I did happen to sell it. Anyway, I got this guitar a bit over a year ago and...

    How has the ZR performed for everyone out there? is it as good as the OE, worse or better?

    I was playing my 1999 570 last night and it would not stay in tune. I've been having that problem with it lately, but it was unplayable last night. The strings are Slinkys and about 2 weeks old, so I don't think they are the problem. I am worried that it might be the trem; i.e. the edges of the...

    So i am a pretty big S fan i guess you could say. For a short dude like me they are pretty rad guitars. I unfortunatly only have one in my fleet of two Ibanez's. My S is a 2170se from last years prestige line. The S has been changes a lot since the early days of the line. I have played a...

    Extremely early Christmas gift from parents. Got it from Steve's in downtown Toronto, to my knowledge it was the last one. Here's some pictures....the attachments feature is being stupid, so here they are in link form....stupid internet explorer had to go ****ing wonky on me....*grumbles to...

    I got a couple of questions about string changing and cleaning. It's my first string change with a edge pro system, so I'm kind of exited. I've searched the internet and jemsite, but I couldn't find a few things. I hope some of you know the answers, and some of the questions sound stupid but...

    I own an Ibanez, RG350DX. It has an Edge III bridge, and I don't know what is the correct angle for this bridge. This is how it looks now: I don't know whether it's right or wrong. My mother tongue is Hebrew, and the combination of English and guitars just doesn't work for me. No one has...

    Ok so I have a question, and I think I already know the answer but since I never did this I thought I'd ask and hope, maybe I'm wrong. Ok so I want to try bigger gauge strings and try a lower tuning, maybe D or C. The guitar in question has a floating trem of course, its a RG 2550 with...

    Hey everyone! I just recently bought a Jem77vbk and its lovely, plays unbelivably well. Just one problem i have with it. I dont know if the bridge is set too sensitive or something. Lets say i hit two strings at the same time. Gstring on the 14th fret and bstring on the 15th. Then i bend the g...

    If I were to just drop the E to a D, thus having D A D G B E on an Edge Pro Double Locking Tremolo, what steps would I have to take? I am assuming then I have to readjust the cavity springs for the Tremolo angle but if its just temporary would I get away with not readjusting it if I dont might...

    Hello fellow Jemsiters, today I have joined the ranks of the 7 string axe slingers! I actually hadn't been this thrilled since I got my LNG and my JPM 2 & 3!!! I kept looking out the window for the UPS truck and finally it arrived!!! I had been looking into getting a UVMC or a UV7BK for a looong...

    Hey i just picked up a 2003Js100 this weekend to keep my 2170se company ha. I really love the guitar, the round body is insane. The only mod to it that i can see is i think it has a Lo Pro II trem which is one of my favorite floating trems. Any way the worst part about it is that pickups...

    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...

    I've got a year old 7VWH and there are so many little details that need to be worked out... one of my concerns is the neck pickup is dead... zero harmonics and almost no bite which is totally the opposite of their description, the pinched and tapped harmonics also aren't very strong could this...

    I started writing this long, long ago but I never finished it. It has been sat on my hard drive for ages, but I figured someone somewhere might benefit from this information. So here it is... incomplete, but probably quite useful? I don't know. Maybe I'll finish it one day. STRING TENSION...

    Well, the Carvin finally showed. Unfortunately, I now know why it was in QA for so damn long... I appears they most likely put a fixed bridge on it and then had to go back and re-route for the floyd, because the route isn't the best fitting I've ever come across. They also didn't install the...
