trem block

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi there, I just wanted to know where to put the fourth spring when the edge block just has 3 holes in it. The outer 2 springs straight into the outer holes and the inner 2 angled into the same hole? Or do I have to use the holes meant for the spring lock screws?? Umm.. and if you want me to...

    I was just looking through this book I have, and noticed on the back of the telecaster string ferrules... Of course it's a fixed bridge, but has a trem ever been made with ferrules on the back of the guitar,and a roller-nut style type saddle for the strings to sit in? I don't know if I'm...

    Well guys throw me the pros and cons here. I'd love to drop in an Edge but the routing would drive me insane. So i've decided to go with the Floyd Rose Pro. Which locks on the top like a TRS2 but i hear is MUCH more stable and i need to switch from black hardware to chrome. And does anyone know...

    Anyone ever make a trem block for there JS? If so what did you use? I'm looking into making one for my JS1 so I'd have something I can take to gigs with me and just slip in and out(plan on installing a EVH D Tuna since mine is equipped with an Edge Tremolo. Thx............

    Hi. There is a way you can lock down your tremolo on your Floyd Rose tremolo's. I have a Jem 555, and an Ibanez lo-trs floyd rose. It was set up to where it was locked, and I could olny dive/dump/ lower the pitch and not higher the pitch. And when I take the strings off the guitar, the tremolo...

    Hi, I'm considering a possibly ill-advised mod. I have three S-series guitars, all with Edges or Lo-Pros. While I love the guitars, it'd be nice to have one without the floating trem. So, I'm thinking of blocking the trem (wood on both sides of the block), removing the locknut, and installing...

    Hi bros The latest " guitar I must have" is a Clapton Strat ( must be white). :) I am seriously considering ordering one, but b4 i do I would like opinions of Ibanez players, cause I consider myself one as well. These opinions can well differ from the very good reviews I have heard-read from...

    My question is do you have to have trem posts the with the set screws for an Edge or Lo Pro? I recently picked up a 440 Power and noticed that the trem posts have no set screws, and this isn't the first time that it's happened. I have an early Radius that had the same situation. Anyone else ever...

    Grr.....Where can I order a shorter Trem Blcok for my Floyd Rose Pro? Is it the same as the edge/lo-pro edge/OFR 's trem block? btw, which Intonation Adjustment tool should I use? edge/lo pro edge/TRS?

    Ok, so Ibanez call you up one day and ask if they can give you a bazilion gazzillion guitars for the rest of your life, providing you come up with the ultimate *NEW* Jem, what would your own Jem be like. Many people (including myself) think the new blue jem is a tad boring, so what would be...

    I've been looking around to buy a new guitar. I liked a lot the Ibanez RG320 and 270 and those are like in between the price I can afford, but I don't really know the big differences between the both of them. Is there too much difference in quality?? I know there is a difference in the bridge...

    I will join a band, maybe next week, that play this doom-metal downtuned stuff (they tune to C#). And of course i wan't to play my Jem! Anyway, i was just talking to a friend of mine this weekend about this, and i told me that this will hurt my guitar! He has an ESP Kirk Hammet model (the Les...

    I checked out a used 99 UV777BK this afternoon.  It was in decent shape with some battle scars but for the price it seemed like a decent deal.  However after closer inspection I noticed something weird.  There was a small patch of neck right where it met the body that wasn't as faded as the rest...

    Hey I've checked out Rich's "used guitar primer" and read how he suggest to clean guitars... after I read it, I've realized that my JS 10'th has seen better days... But I've never ever done anything like that on a guitar. I'd hate to do anything wrong, specially to this guitar. Should I go for...
