original edge

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi everyone, the underside of the original edge tremolo on my Genesis RG550 is touching on the body (in between the pivot studs of the tremolo) albeit very slightly, it is enough to disrupt smooth tremolo operation or maybe uneven wear on the knife edges. I believe I am not the only one since...

    I hear the knife edge inserts in the Original Edge trems especially the new ones are nearly indestructible and should last forever?

    So the other day it was mentioned in a forum that to adjust the action on an Original edge it was not necessary to release tension on the strings because its made out of high quality hardened steel. What are you opinions on this and also if I release the string tension when adjusting action do I...

    So I've decided to put heavier strings on one of my guitars, but I'll need an extra spring under the hood. Has anyone here succeeded in putting more springs in an original edge block? I ask because instead of having five holes for springs, two of them are screw holes for the spring retainer...

Also, the bridge cant be pulled back cos of the weird setup its in. Is there something I can do myself for this to go both ways? Advices...

    Hi everyone, first post here with a short question.. I just bought myself an RG652AHM NGB. It's my first Prestige model and first 'expensive guitar' so I'm thrilled to bits. There's just a small issue with play in the Original Edge bridge. Lowering the tremolo arm (lowering pitch) and then...

    Gents, what is your take on the 450 made in japan (the ones with original edge)? as far as I can tell, the only difference is the beefier neck joint (which has a fat heel, not slanted like 550/jems). I'm considering buying one and would like to get your opinion on them. Also, is this bridge...
