    trem stud squeaky Hello, the uv70p is the only inserts/studs-equipped locking trem of my guitars. (The other two older ones have the oldest screw-pivots). Those studs are also locking, in the sense that they have a concentric minor bolt used to lock down the stud in place. So the smaller bolt...

    Hi, I just go a RG3550MZ and I want to adjust the action. I wanted to "unlcok" the lock bolts in studs, but they are not there. However if I want to adjust the action with the actual studs, they won't move at all :cry:.... any advice for this?

    Last night I was trying to lower the action a bit on my Jem70V and the allen head on the tremolo stud just broke in half. The action isn't even as low as I have it on my RG4EXFM1 which cost a third of the price. I'm pretty pissed at this and I was already starting to connect with the way this...

    I want to adjust the string action of the guitar and I am looking at the bridge studs: They are adjustable with an allen wrench but I also see an option for a star shaped wrench. Turning the star shaped wrench seems to move the whole stud so I am not sure what it is for. Is this for locking? If...

    Hi guys, I've been experiencing some problems with my JEM555 recently. My bridge seems to be sitting a lot closer to the scratchplate, which is bending the scratchplate when it plays, also at the same time it's struggling to stay in tune and i'm not getting very good sustain as i usually...

    I have a major dilemma. My locking stud was stuck, so I tried removing the entire anchor with the stud inside using 3-in-1 oil & soldering. I normally do this no problem with a special puller tool. This one actually broke off at the head! (See photos below) Now I'm having trouble pulling out the...

    I'm in desperate need of these studs. The diameter is 6mm X 1.0 thread pitch (coarse). I can't find these anywhere!!! I have tried everywhere..over 50 phone calls so far and I've raided 6 music stores. For reference, these are from a 1987 ESP Horizon archtop. I believe Takeuchi studs will work...

    I just picked up a 2000 520QS that has a broken trem stud that I need to replace, as half of the top of the stud is broken off. My original thought was to just remove the Edge and unscrew the stud by hand but found that this is not possible. It is a locking stud that has a seized lock screw...

    i was reading up on ibanezrules.com again (my favourite guitar site) and i read about the edge pro stud mod and the EZ replacements. i understand the deal with the edge pros is that it's a kit which enables you to lock the studs. and i understand the studs on the edge zeros are not too great...
