  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I just got an MIJ RG470 with a Lo-TRS tremolo, but with no bar. After some research, it looks as though the replacement bar is the threaded kind. I actually really dislike threaded bars, so my question is, can I replace the trem arm assembly on the Lo-TRS with a Schaller trem arm assembly? I...

    Well, it looks like I have misplaced my original tremolo arm. Given the guitar is over 31 years old, I wonder where it is. So i guess the quickest way to find it, is to order one. I have seen some horrendous prices on Ebay, of @ $100. The Ibanez site is more reasonable, but there are so many to...

    Hi guys! Video tells more than many words: youtube.com/watch?v=UwTRhEnATzY Please add www on the link - I just registered and 5 posts is required to post links, and I chose rather not to spam 5 meaningless posts :) I love this guitar. However, some time ago the tremolo got extra loose, it...

    Hey everyone! I was changing strings on my RG today when I noticed that I couldn't adjust the action anymore, the screw had stripped. Any remedies? This is a 2002 RG320DXQM with a Lo TRS II trem. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Hi! I been trying to get my tremolo parallel to the guitar body, but it seems impossible. I have pulled the sprind adjustment knob as far as possible. What else can I do?
  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I'm thinking about buying an RG450DXB, but I'm wondering if I could replace the Ibanez Standard DL Tremolo with a Schaller Lockmeister 6 Trem down the line, since on the chart it only says "OFR compatible" and not "any OFR compatible". If anyone has any experience with this, I'd love to hear...

    Hi everyone! I just got a Jem77p-bfp and been loving it! I´m new to this floating bridge things and did a really big mistake. I adjusted the action while the strings were tight and didn´t know that we coudn´t do that (the ibanez manual doesn´t say anything about it). Now I´m seeing everyone on...

    Does all saddle should to has the same height at a Edge Trem or they has its own? I just disassembled it and didn't put attention in to the order of them. It seems that B and G strings are lowered. Thank you in advance guys.

    I'm considering buying an RG550, but I've never owned a guitar with a locking trem before. I frequently switch tunings on my guitar between standard, flat, drop d, etc and I'm wondering whether this causes problems with a locking trem?

    Hi everyone! I am new here and very eager to join the club! I am pretty much a one-guitar kinda guy and have been playing the same pimped out Epi Les Paul for going on 15 years. The frets are pretty much gone and I decided to move on to greener pastures, specifically a japanese built RG. I've...

    I have an RG652AHM with an Ibanez Edge bridge tuned to E with 10-46 strings. I have the bridge parallel with the body like it should be and I've tried blocking it with a bunch of different things, and I want to block it on both sides so it acts like a hardtail and I am able to do things like...

    HI all, I just received a new Carbon trem arm from Rich and learned the bushings are bigger now on the new trem arms. It is for my JS2400, but is tight fitting almost can't get the arm in. It ried the arm from my JS2450 and it fits fine. Also the new trem arm is tight on my 2450. Any...

    Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right location for this if not feel free to move it, anyway... I am wanting to move away from Ibanez models with full floating trems. I just can't deal with the stress of changing strings and setting up the bridge any more. I've been playing with "floating"...

    Hello all, this is my first post to this site. I've recently bought a '94 MIK RG470 and unfortunately it didn't come with a trem bar. The bridge from what I've Googled is a Lo-TRS II? I can't see anything on it that identifies it as such so I'm not 100% on that. Anyway, it looks like it takes...

    Hi there, I've got an Edge Zero 2 Tremolo and I find its tremolo arm system kind of annoying, so I was trying to find a solution to change it to something that actually work well for me. I'm trying to change the tremolo arm system to a pop-in kind of system. I know the Edge Pro and Lo-Pro...

    Hi all. New to the site but yet to post an introduction. Will do for my next post though. I have just stripped and rebuilt an S series Ibanez fitted with what I believe is an Edge Zero 2 tremolo. There is plenty on the web about changing strings and setting intonation etc but I can't find...

    I picked up an Ibanez SA560MB and I love the feel of the neck, the Dimarzios sound nice - aside from the setup which was a travesty and the fact that the back is a solid dark matte finish, not the red wood look on the Ibanez site photos, which will teach me to order online, I'm ok with it. But...

    Hey all, I just picked up an SA1260 that literature says has an SAT-Pro tremolo. Mine didn't come with a bar... I had an old bar lying around (unknown origins) that is threaded and it threads fine, but sits VERY high off the body when "tightened" all the way in. I also tried a "push in" style...

    This tremolo is on an rg320 it looks a lot like an edge pro, but I had understood that the edge pro was mostly on prestige models. Am I correct? Whats the general consensus on these trems? Thanks, Eric :smile2:
