    I have an RG570 body from Japan but no trem on it. Can I install a floyd instead? Is there another edge model that would fit it that's just as good as the original edge trem? cheers

    Hello, I have a Lo-TRS trem. I am using 09-42 and guitar has 2 springs on it angled in this way / \. It is better to use this config or the standard | | ? I really like how loose is the use of the bar but the disadvantage is that the trem goes dows so easily during palm muting. If a use 2...

    Hey fellas, I recently purchased a swirled jem body off ebay, it came loaded with EVO pup set and some sort of floating tremolo installed. However not sure exactly what tremolo this is. It has Ibanez branding on it, "Licensed Under Floyd Rose Pats." and also says "LITIAN CENIURY" on the block...

    Does anyone know if the Gotoh posts will fit into the mounting points that an original Edge uses? I want to replace Edge with Gotoh and was wondering if I was going to get new posts, if I could use the Gotoh ones or if it'd be better to buy new Edge ones. I don't want to have to pull out the...

    I see changing your arm holder to a floyd type screw in arm holder is a popular mod, seen at http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f21/replacement-of-your-trem-arm-tutorial-with-pictures-34038.html Don't want to reanimate a ten year old thread, so anyone know where I can get one of those arm holders...

    Hi all, I've got a Daemoness custom build on order, it's still a very long wait but I figured it's never too early to research exactly what specs I'm going to have on it. The two things I'm undecided on are the neck profile and the bridge type. The neck profiles I'm going to explore by...

    Hello everyone. I came across this site, and thought I might be able to find a solution to my problem here. I just bought an RG655 a couple of days ago, and everything was fine until I decided to change the stock strings, and switched from .9 to .10. I've been trying to tune the guitar since...

    This is really odd, bought a nice secondhand RG550 and noticed I couldn't lock the E/A nut clamp it started to tighten then would go loose again. Me thinks knackered thread in the nut...anyhoo noticed the other 2 clams could be tightened BUT the machine heads could alter the string tuning when...

    I got a guitar with a Jackson "made in germany" floyd on it and I can't keep the saddle on the 1st string from snapping forward into the lock screw. I reset the intonation and get about 15 min of play time before the screw looses it's grip and the saddle snaps forward. I changed the screw with...

    Hey, I was tooling around on the Floyd Rose site and saw this: http://www.floydrose.com/catalog/tremolos/6:frx-series/frx I have been wanting a Gibson SG for a long time, but when I have the money, I always end up buying something else. The big reason is that when I own a hardtail guitar, it...

    OK, a daft question, which may have been asked before (I did try the search first though) Which trem is the better (durability and tuning stability), I appreciate that neither are Ibanez's "top end" units Lo-TRS-II Edge III

    I have a S370 I bought around 03 or 04 that has the old TRS locking tremolo. I've always had love-hate relationship with the thing especially after a brief stint playing a EVH Wolfgang that had the Floyd Rose Original. I would like to replace the TRS with a FRO (which I understand is a drop in...

    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 have an early LNG neck that needs the locking nut. The problem is an Ibanez 43 mm is too wide. The edge of the nut sticks out a little by the high E. But when I use the Floyd R3 nut the edges of the Low/High E are perfect. So does this mean that some of the early Jem necks were 42mm? I say...

    Just bought a new 7 string with a "floyd rose special". Does anybody know what the bridge radius is please? Jackson seem to think its 12", the floyd website say that ORIGINAL floyd 7's are 20". So what on earth is the 7 string floyd rose special? Kind regards!
