tremolo arm

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello, I was given an RG 120 and it's missing the trem arm. The bridge is the two post unit that uses allen screws to lock down the saddles. What is the part number and what is a good source to buy it from? Also, what is this bridge called? Thanks! :grin2: - Johnny

    What are my options. There's some talk about a schaller--do I need to buy a collar and arm? I'm assuming Ibanez doesn't have a replacement part for these tremolo systems. And yes, I did search the forum first--but there were too many threads with quasi-information in them. Set me straight --...

    I ned a spare tremolo arm for my Ibanez Edge Original - and I saw an Ibanez compatible arm on eBay for £2: Is this total rubbish? Or is it likely to work? Seems a simple enough design to implement...

    I recently bought a left-handed JEM JR. I got it for $200 off because it had one slight ding and no tremolo arm. I can't figure out which Tremolo Arm the Jem Jr takes, and I've been searching a lot... Anyone know the Tremolo arm model number, for the Jem JR?

    Hey everyone, I just picked up a early 1983 DT-155 today from a local music shop (woo!), and unfortunately the guitar is equipped with what has been referred to as a "standard tremolo" system for which the whammy bar was not included. I knew this going into the purchase, figuring that there...

    Hi, I bought a RG1550 with an edge pro and it didn't had the arm hold spring. I don't feel I need it, the bar stays in the socket w/o problem. Is this spring really needed? I believe that if they put one there should be for something but I don't see which benefit it bring and if I should get...

    Hi, I'm owning Jem 77V from 2010 with original Edge tremolo. Is any chance on this tremolo to make the tremolo arm to hold in any position which I want? Now, it falls always down after use... Thanks.

    Hello, I remembered, back in the mid 90's Ibanez used to sell some sort of 'jacket' for tremolo arms, made out of foam, if I remembered correctly. So that players can grip better to the tremolo arm and also protects the arm itself. I can't remember what they are called, and searched Google for...

    I have a 2008 J Custom RG8420ZD which uses Edge Zero. I know the tremolo arms on these are supposed to stay put. Mine comes out with light to moderate force. I emailed rich and he said "the boshing goes in the holder, tang in slot, tang side down, cap on. it never comes off until changed." I'm...

    Got an s7420 online a couple of days ago and the tremolo arm torque cap didn't come threaded from the factory it seems. I called the place up and they said they would send in a missing parts request and didn't really give me as time frame. Ive been looking all over and can't find that arm...

    Hi all, Just bought an RGT42DX, nice guitar with crap stock pickups which will upgrade as soon as more $$ comes in! Having a problem with the EdgeIII trem arm - I got the gtr without an arm, and picked up a replacement from Guitar Center (part #2LE2-1B), Unfortunately this replacement arm...

    Hi Everybody, Long story short, after years of contouring the heel of my strat and messing with my bridge to stay in tune, i gave up and got a used ibanez rg 220. What changed my mind was borrowing my good friends hideous pink early 90s RG. It has an edge tremolo with locking studs. Plays...

    Hi I'm having a problem with my bushing-less tremolo arm - I can't get it to stay tight! I've looked through the forums and searched on the internet but I can't seem to find help tightening a trem arm with no bushings (like mine). *The tremolo arm has no bushings or thread; the whole thing is...

    Ok, I'll try this again.........87' RFR RG-550, really smoking condition and a real nice score, if I do say so myself. And here are the only noticable flaws in the finish......not too shabby for an 87'......made in March of that year, so probably one of the first 1,000(?)

    I've got an '88 Ibanez 540S Saber with the original Ibanez hard shell case that I'm considering trading or selling. This guitar was assembled in the US from Japanese-made parts in '88 and comes in a beautiful "Lipstick Red" finish. This is one of the earliest Sabers, as you can tell by the...

    I really haven't found much backup on this, just here and there. Understanding this forum may be biased towards Ibanez, I would still like all opinions of superstrat type guitars and how they compare sonicaly and as far as quality (and visually if interested). Which guitars I have in my mind...

    Hey, I've recently bought an Ibanez Jem 7VWH. Since I'm a new entry in the electric guitar world, I would like to refer to some problems I've encountered so far. Problem A: When I play for ie 1-2 hours continuously I notice that the high (treble) E or/and the B and/or the G string are getting...

    Kahler 2300 Tremolo Bridge in chrome. Includes the locking nut and the tremolo arm pictured. This bridge is complete, and it works flawlessly. Great for replacing a Floyd that has broken its posts and damaged the body, its also lockdownable via the allen screw in the cam. It really is a...

    Does anyone know where I can get the arm for what I believe to be the Lo-Pro Edge tremolo system? Somewhere in leaving it for our friend to repair my buddy's arm got lost and I've got his guitar right now. I managed to acquire an extra one from work that was SLIGHTly bent and it just broke on me...

    Hiya, I just bought an Ibanez RG1520GK, but the seller didn't have the trem, so I ordered the standard (Ibanez) replacement. My problem is, if I push the trem arm fully into the trem arm hole, then I can't move the trem out of the way because the guitar's volume knob gets in the way. I...
