    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...

    Hello, I noticed that now that summer came, I needed to slightly screw the screws of the trem claw, in order to achieve the same parallel position of the trem plate as before. I had many incidents like this, back from Oct->Dec when I finally stabilized the guitar. I hadn't touched any tool...

    Hello, there is a theory that a part of the initial energy of the strings is absorbed by the moving/vibrating trem springs. I believe that, since it is obvious that much of the "reverb" effect that float double locking trem systems is exhibiting is due do energy initially carried by the...

    Hello everyone... Please I need help finding good high tension springs to my ibanez universe.. I have had this guitar for 2 years and I love the tone but the bridge is not what I was waiting for, I have an ibanez 350my with an edge zero II bridge and I love the bridge is easy to set up, it is...

    Ok, here we go, one of my guitar ( Ibanez RG, Edge, square heel) feels a little bit 'loose' on the strings tension. the facts : the strings tension in this guitar is not as tight as other guitars. bending feels smoother and easier. less power to do. even vibrato feels easier, less effort...

    I have 3 springs in my Original Edge trem right now but it feels too "loose" for me...I guess I'm used to strat trems and the Edge Zero trem on my RG2550z, which are a little tighter and require a little more oomph to raise or lower the pitch. It seems like my OE trem affects the pitch if you so...

    Sorry, quick question, i doubt it really matters but may as well get it right, on a guitar with pickguard mounted pickups, with the single coil, do the springs go in with the narrow end against the pickguard or the pickup? Thanks

    I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem with their Edge Pro or other type of floating bridges and what they did to fix them. When I pick hard the bridge sort of flutters and warbles real quick, but it produces an annoying tone. The sound is like if you push the bar back and...

    Hey all, have an interesting situation with the Edge Pro on my RG2550e. I have not had any issues getting it set up correctly and it stays in tune perfectly as long as I don't use it anywhere other than my home. I have attempted to use it in our worship band on 3 separate occasions and each...

    hey guys. I took my rg550dx to a local shop for a tuning issue and the guy told me that my springs were pretty worn out. He didn't have any in stock and the shop is about 45 min drive so i decided that i would get them myself. I looked on ibanezrules and they have 2 different sizes of trem...

    I’ve changed strings from 9 mm to 10 mm and still tuned it in E. As you can see the tremolo is way to high up. I’m a newbie when it comes to Tremolo, and therefore in doubt and afraid of not crashing my new homeboy by pulling the screws too much inside it’s body. I’m also in doubt about if...

    Hey everyone, I got my '91 RG570 (original Edge) a few weeks ago, and when I got it, I noticed that the spring claw screws were almost screwed all the way in. The flutter was almost non-existent (yes, the arm and arm holder are tight as can be)...after abusing the trem for a few weeks (probably...

    so i got some heavy duty egen edge zero springs to finally get my EZ level with the studs in free float mode (couldn't do it for some reason with the stock springs). so i've finally set the bastard up, knife edges are level etc but it's still going a bit out of tune from pull ups, and ever so...

    Hello to all! I changed strings set on my Ibanez RG1527 from Lite 9-52 set to Regular 10-56. I faced the problem of leveling the tremolo to right angle (tension springs are in /I\ and the claw is all the way to the wood, but the tremolo is still to high). Should I buy a set of stronger spings...

    Hello to all! I,m a bit surprised that factory setup on my RG 1527 can't handle the 10-56 regular string set. Although I tightened the screws of a tension springs claw all the way to the wood, the tremolo is still to high (out of level) by standard tune E-B-G-D-A-E-B. Did anyone face the...

    I got an rg with an original edge trem, and it was set up for e standard with very very light strings. im changing brand, going to heavier guage strings and lowering the tuning a full step. ive changed the three springs to be /|\ - but even when i screw the claw screws all the way in, as far...

    Hello all, I have been tinkering with my two Ibanez RG guitars, a 350EX and a 2550E, and noticed that with the same string gauge, the 350 seemed to have lower string tension compared to the 2550 though strung with the exact same string brand and gauge (D'Addario 9's) Does this have anything to...

    Hi all, Been playing 30 years. This is my first post as a brand new Jem VWH owner. New to the site. Looks like a great resource. My question is... does one typically need to adjust the trem springs to achieve standard tuning fresh out of the box? I did a quick search for this and didn't see...

    I ordered replacement pickup height screws and springs (bridge humbucker wouldn't adjust up/down) but it looks like I needed 13/16" long springs instead of 1-5/8" that I ordered. Can I use the longer springs or will there be too much tension, i.e. "sprung" too much ? Worst case, I just...
