    looking for trem recommendations I have been on a bit of a JEM/Universe splurge recently. Picked up a 2000 7VWH and a 2008 77VBK as well as an older Japanese Universe. The Universe is staying as is. However I'd like to install tremol-nos and D-Tunas on both the JEMS. Obv. this won't work with...

    Hello all! I've always gotten really good advice here, so I was hoping you all could help me with a conundrum I've been struggling with for the past few days. I have a guitar that the previous owner seems to have clamped down way too hard on the nut, and left a dent (more like a slice) all...

    http://www.floydrose.com/catalog/upgrades/tremolo-arms/push-in-style-arm I've got one of these on my Suhr now. It's absolutely awesome. It has the same sort of tension sleeve as a Gotoh or Wilkinson trem, but is a true push-in rather than a screw in like the Gotoh so you can still yank your...

    Hi there, Ive owned a Jem 555 for like 2 years now and although I love my Jem, even after I've tuned and intonated my guitar, if I do a couple of little dives, she goes out of tune. I was thinking on swapping out the Edge 3 thats in it for either an Edge Pro or an OFR. However, even though Ive...

    I have an original Ibanez EDGE Base Plate, Fine Tuners and block. Also, someone close by is selling 6 OFR saddles (set). Question: Has anyone tried installing OFR saddles on an edge plate? Is that even possible? Appreciate your help. Thanks!

    So! One manly magenta RG popped up locally, and since I had a 7-string deficiency in my arsenal, I jumped on it. What I got was a very tidy '99 RG7420MC, all stock except for the locking nut (somebody had swapped it for a chrome version). I was a bit skeptic about the workmanship and the quality...

    Hello. I have an Ibanez RG2550E which has an Edge Pro tremolo with very worn knife edges, and can probably not be any more sharpened... I would love to install an original Floyd Rose (German made) in the guitar, not only because it is a kick ass trem, but also because I love to have a...

    So, I'm looking for an OFR 7 - black preferably, but not necessarily - in good condition. I really need the bridge unit only, but I will consider the whole kit too. I live in Finland, so inter-EU trade much preferred, but I'll seriously consider all offers. Anxiously waiting for replies, Antti

    Hey Folks, I couldn't find the tremolo bridge thread that mentioned compatibility of trems. I have an OFR and I want to put it in a JS body that I found on the bay. The original Edge and OFR will swap out right? Thanks

    I've got an original, German made Floyd Rose off of a 1980/81 USA Kramer. Bridge, nut, bar, claw, studs, springs, all screws and locking nut pieces. Fully functional, chrome looks great (mostly), very solid. The only issue is that one saddle has been replaced with a gold one. Other than that...

    Hey guys, just wondering if any of you know if the OFR locking nut pressure pads would fit on an ibanez nut? I have an S570DXQM (blue and beautiful) but I got it second hand, and the guy who used it before me has locked the nut so tight there's grooves in it where the strings have been...

    Longtime player. I look forward to learning more about Ibanez guitars, and am thinking about picking up a RG model of some sort. Cheers!

    Hey everybody, Rob from Maryland. Been playing for generations. I've been modding and teching all my own gear going back to the early '70s. Now if I'd only left it unmodded, and kept it all in a bank vault, I'd be rich. :( But, I was a working musician, and if I didn't need something I'd sell...

    I have a late 90s RG270DX that has served me well for many years despite being a lower end guitar. It has a no name single locking trem though which I'd like to swap out. Does anyone know which trems fit it with minimal modification to the face of the guitar? Also I've been told that this trem...

    Just a quick question to confirm something for me. Is the screw spacing for Edge sustain blocks the same as OFR ones? Cheers :)

    I have been meaning to post pic of my bridge off my MIM with a OFR because I have not seen its markings. Have been to lazy to take pics but I came across this one with the same markings. Oh it has a brass block the size of a normal floyd block. this MIM Strat is the best playing guitar I have...

    I'm looking to buy a JEM body from Perle Guitars, and I have an OFR sitting here at the house. Has anyone put an OFR in an Edge routing before? How much modification is required? I also know the OFR studs are smaller than the Edge. Are there wider bushings I could put the OFR studs in...
