  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello, I have a Lo-TRS trem. I am using 09-42 and guitar has 2 springs on it angled in this way / \. It is better to use this config or the standard | | ? I really like how loose is the use of the bar but the disadvantage is that the trem goes dows so easily during palm muting. If a use 2...

    Hey people, Suppose an Edge tremolo. Suppose I have two sets of springs, same measurement, but one set has longer springs. If I use the set with the shorter springs, obviously I'd have to unscrew the claw to achieve the same tension to balance the strings at the other side. But if I use this...

    Hey guys, My deep apologies for being unable to find the answer in the threads, and having tried everything and everywhere else to find out what's wrong. I think this may even be my first post on Jemsite. I've been experiencing something with my Floyd like I never have before... It's tuning...

    Ok.I just bought a new set of strings. Dunlop Mediums. I have been using these for a while and they are great. But something weird has happened tonight while changing the strings. Everytime I tune up to pitch, I strum and then they all go out of tune. I have stretched the snot out of these...

    Hey guys, I have an Ibanez SAS32EX which I play daily. I seem to have stumbled upon an issue when tuning down to C# standard to play some Between the Buried and Me. The issue is simple, my guitar feels very tight. In C# standard, it feels like my friends RG that's in E. That can't be right, it...

    Hi, last week I bought an ibanez js1200. I have never had a guitar with a floyd rose before but am aware of the basics. I tuned my guitar up properly and it was fine but now there is a lot of fret buzz which was not there before I tuned up. The action is at an almost identical level but the trem...

    Heyy, So my friend has an Ibanez RGR420ex, which has the Edge III tremolo system. It's not my problem because I have the S320 with the Zr Tremolo. So we decided to setup the guitar, as I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to guitar setups and such. We bought some .011-.054 strings...

    Hey, all. You know who I am. Yes, you've seen my type before--the shameless hit and runner who's going to post his problem, get some good answer, type "THANKS DUDES!!!!11" and then go my merry way without a thought for my saviours. But at least I'm honest about it :D So, cutting to the...

    Good day fellows, I have a little "neck bow, freting-out" issue. I have a UV777 bk of the 2001 vintage, great guitar all of these years, my main girl. Just a bit more background I live in south Georgia, which means brutal hot to high twenties. I noticed probably a couple of days ago that...
