    Hi, I'm thinking about buying an RG450DXB, but I'm wondering if I could replace the Ibanez Standard DL Tremolo with a Schaller Lockmeister 6 Trem down the line, since on the chart it only says "OFR compatible" and not "any OFR compatible". If anyone has any experience with this, I'd love to hear...

    I have replaced a Lo-Pro Edge with a Floyd Rose on a RG550LTD. I didn't have a big nut to use the trick to remove the stud inert (hardware shops are closed in Bangkok) so I have used the old studs. The studs are a little bit different (I forgot to take a side-by-side picture) but so far it...

    Morning all, Is there an easy way to change the springs used on the Edge Zero II trems? Since buying my RG6PCMLTD 2nd hand, it has never been a stable trem system. When you use the bar, it never returns to pitch. I'm not a newbie when it comes to floating trems - and my other guitars do not...

    After digging around the internet for a few weeks, I have been unable to find an original neck for a JEM7 (1988-1989). So if you have a beat up or broken JEM with a neck still somewhat intact or know someone else who does, I'd love to hear from you.

    I've been eyeing off a desert yellow 540S available locally, which appears to be in reasonable condition, bar a rather significant neck joint crack on the bass side of the body, and a broken switch plate. My question is, if I were to purchase the guitar, are replacement switch plates all the...

    Hi, newbie from Norway here.... Was just wondering what kind og tremolo system I can fit into this guitar. Just got it (used item :smile_big:) and after playing it a little bit, I now have decided that it can't be used, before I can find a nice replacement system, that will keep it in tune even...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    So I'd like to replace the wiring in my guitar, some of it's frayed, losing shielding, and too short. In some cases I'll be extending wires that are already there (like from pickups). Anyone have any recommendations on where to acquire wire and what kind of wiring I should get? Doing some...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Hey all, I am in need of some guidance on pickups. I did a search of the forums and I think I have confused myself even more, lol. I have an Ibanez RG3EXKA1 and I swapped out the pickups with a Dimarzio Tone Zone and PAF Pro from my Ibanez USRG30; the issue was that the pickups were direct...

    Hi, I couldn't find this anywhere and just wanted to make sure. Are edge zero and edge zero 2 interchangeable? Is the edge zero II somehow better/worse in quality than the original? I need to replace the original and II is cheaper and easier to find.

    Hello: I got an RG470 from the year 2000. It comes with a Lo-TRS tremolo. I have the 7 strings version on 2 guitars and I never had any issues with it. But since I did not paid much for it, I may change it on the 6 string. I found this info here on the forum: Is this accurate? I also...

    Hello everyone! I have a premium universe UV70p. From the moment i touched it i know i was doomed, i never played a guitar with the same feel. The neck is rediculous and I have a thing going for pickguard equipped guitars. The only and biggest problem is the Edge Zero ii 7 trem. It wont stay...

    As i'm in the process of renovating my JEM7VWH, i need to replace the yellowed plastic knobs of the volume and tone controls. Unfortunately my dealer (thomann.de) only has Fender and Harley-Benton knobs. Does anyone know if Fender knobs fit the JEM pots? If not, what should i look for?

    I searched for VLX-91 here, but the search says "No matches". Word seems too short or something. I need to replace the 5-way switch in my JEM7V, cause it's faulty. But the original switch, which per this forum seems to be a VLX-91 model, costs almost $40!!! (and it's hardly available here in...

    Why can't they go back to selling these? Now when I screw up my knife edges I have to take a file to them and risk screwing them up even more, or I have to buy a new trem or used trem in it's entirety in order to get a replaceable set. How hard is it to send 50 pairs of knife edges to the...

    Hey guys. I will change the original speakers in my Peavey Valveking 112 combo. The two options are: Celestion V30 or Celestion G 12 T 100. Which would be better? The V30 is "only" 60w, and the Valveking is 50w all tube, and i heard that it can blow the speaker. And the G 12 T is not only...

    I recently picked up a used '99 JS100 that I've been gradually replacing all the chrome hardware with black. The '98 JS100 came with the Lo-TRS II trem and, after a LOT of research on this forum, it seemed to be universally reviled, with many people opting to replace it with a Gotoh 1996T Floyd...

    Hi everyone, I need some advices regarding the upgrade that I would like to do. I have a JEM90 with the original LO Pro bridge. Heard the latest Edge Zero II is good so I would like to see if it is possible to replace the lo pro with the Edge Zero II. Does it fit? Thanks in advance. Jerry
