    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?

    So I recently moved and loosened the strings because I knew the guitar would be subject to some heat. Travel time was four days and it has been 45 days since and I decided it was time to retune. Long story short, the guitar will only tune when the trem is tightened down. I can tell that the...

    Hi, I've been having some pretty bad tuning stability problems with my Edge Pro equipped RG1570. I've had the guitar for around 10 years, but barely used the tremolo and only got these problems recently. Basically If I tune normally and lock down the string at the nut and start tuning at the...

    I have been having a mental dilemma with my future acquisition of my first MIJ JEM. I got a RG655CBM and a RG752GK they are very nice guitars but I have been using them less and less since I got hard tail guitar (PRS). I like playing with the Edge trem, but setting it up is a pain, and every...

    Hi guys. Anyone know what size the screws are that connects the round tuning peg (the part you turn), to the actual tuning peg that's connected to the headstock? I misplaced mine and they are very small. I tried 4g x 12mm ones from the hardware store, but they were too small. I think a 3g one...

    Hi guys, I was gifted with a JEM77P, I have worked with a floating tremolo in the past but for some reason what I usually do when I change the strings hasn't worked out on this guitar. I changed the strings one by one and tuned it up, checked the angle of the tremolo and adjusted it to level...

    Hoping some of you experts might have an idea here.. I have a 2003 7VWH with an Edge Pro and the locking stud mod. It lives on a wall hanger and gets played only occasionally as although I love the smooth neck and fretboard I find tend to pick up my RG570EX more often because I'm just less...

    This is really odd, bought a nice secondhand RG550 and noticed I couldn't lock the E/A nut clamp it started to tighten then would go loose again. Me thinks knackered thread in the nut...anyhoo noticed the other 2 clams could be tightened BUT the machine heads could alter the string tuning when...

    Hey guys, So after me taking the strings off and back on my rg570 (awesome guitar btw) I noticed that whenever I pull up on the bar, my g string goes out of tune and messes up the tuning of the whole guitar. I know it's only the g string because when I take off the locking nut, and return the...

    Okay, I have 6 guitars currently, and most of them are standard tuning (4 of them, 2 are Eb). So here's my dilemma: I want to know what other tunings I should experiment with. I've done D tuning before but that was before I was really interested in that low of a tuning (I did C# standard once...

    I'm having tuning problem on my 1570. I changed strings today, and they're the same strings but they raised the bridge. When I stretch the strings, they all go flat, when I tune them all back up to pitch that go sharp. I tune them back down to pitch. Then, when I stretch them again, they go back...

    I own a RG1820X. I have one slight issue with the trem on the guitar. When the tremolo bar is inserted into the trem bridge, it seems to cause tuning instability by about 10 cents depending on where the bar is situated. However as soon as I remove the trem arm from the tremolo system, the trem...

    I have a guitar with a very thin mahogany neck, and I was wondering if frequently tuning between standard and drop b would damage my guitar.
