    I've been looking into upgrading the "Standard Double-Locking Bridge" on my RGAR42FMT. After checking the what-fits-where chart, I would like to go with the Edge Pro over the Edge because the low profile appeals to me. However, before I invest the money into this project (which will also require...

    Hi, newbie from Norway here.... Was just wondering what kind og tremolo system I can fit into this guitar. Just got it (used item :smile_big:) and after playing it a little bit, I now have decided that it can't be used, before I can find a nice replacement system, that will keep it in tune even...

    I own a PGM3 and I'm very happy with, however, its very old (from 2005) and I want to upgrade pretty much all I can without buying a new one (they don't sell these guitars in my country, I was lucky to buy one from someone who brought it from the USA) Starting with the tremolo, what are my...

    Hey guys, I have had this RG 220 B since i bought it circa 2000 @ guitar center for about 300 bucks. It owes me nothing as i have played it forever. But I'm wondering if upgrading the bridge to a real floyd or one that stays in tune better than this licensed one, would be worth it. I bought...

    Hey guys! I'm going to purchase an RG350 for a build guitar. Down the road I want to change the edge III bridge, and heard Gotoh is a reputable company. But will a Gotoh Floyd fit into an Edge III cavity without routing? If not, what others will fit other than an OG Edge or OFR?

    I've been seeing some craziness in listings on the 'bay lately. This is just my opinion, and you're of course free to argue. Custom / Customized / One-off - these are terms that should be used only when something was done to a guitar on the FACTORY / employee level. On the factory level, this...

    So, without going into a huge story, after a year of breaking my *ss, my company is giving me a bonus check at the end of March. I am guessing that I will have somewhere in the neighborhood of $2500.00 that I can spend on some new gear. I have a JS100 that I will be upgrading the pups on...
