    Hey people, Suppose an Edge tremolo. Suppose I have two sets of springs, same measurement, but one set has longer springs. If I use the set with the shorter springs, obviously I'd have to unscrew the claw to achieve the same tension to balance the strings at the other side. But if I use this...

    First I apologize, guess people ask this a lot, but I figured this forum is where all the Satch fans would be and you people would know best. (I asked my local music shop and they were no help.) My question is this: I have an Ibanez S570B (in White, poor mans JS2400 White Satch guitar?) which...

    I put a low profile Schaller trem in a custom guitar. When I tighten the bar by screwing it down the bar doesn`t swing out of the way naturally.If I leave it loose enough where it does swing out of the way then there is an unacceptable amount of play in it and it squeaks when the bar swings. Is...

    Hi everyone! I just got a used LTD F-250 with a missing tremolo bar (why do people keep losing them :evil: ) I went to a local dealer (the only official ESP retailer in London/UK) and was told that they "don't do spares". What the...? Right, in the bay of evil they sell 6mm Floyd Rose whammy...

    Hey guys, Recently picked up an RGT42DXFM. Threw some pickups in it, and it sounds great. I'm letting it ride with the edge III, I don't seem to mind them as much as everyone else does. One day I'll put an edge pro or something in it, but I'll beat up the edge III first. I rarely use the...

    Hello all. I did a search but with over 500 threads and whammy bar coming up hundreds of times, it gets tedious searching for the right answer. So at the risk of repeating a question I will ask anyway. I just got a new to me 2000 RG350DX. It has the Edge III tremolo. The whammy attaches with a...

    Hey all, I have an RG350DX (which never goes out of tune), The only thing that bugs me is thar I have tightened the arm torque on the trem as tight as it will go...After a few weeks the arm went loose again! I HATE a loose whammy bar!!! so is there any way to make the thing stiff again?

    So Im hearing a lot of rave reviews from players that have a brass block instead of steel. I had brass on my PRS and EBMM JP and the harmonics/sustain and resonance were insane! But my Strat or any other guitar with a steel block wasn't quite there. Back in Feb I got my EBMM Silhouette that has...

    Hey everybody. I've just discovered something weird, for me to say atleast. I took a more closer look to Steve Vai's Evo. The thing i saw was that the signature Jem7v WH was comepletely the same as Steve Vai's jem Evo, but just without the same bridge? Evo has another bridge than the signature...

    I apologize for my bad English. Okay, so I bought a brand new JEM7V about three months ago. I wanted a good guitar with a tremolo system that almost didn't go out of tune at all, so i tried it out and it seemed to be working fine. Now, about a month ago I noticed that when I whammy up (strings...

    Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a new guitar. I've been looking at a bunch of Ibanez guitars and I have a couple of questions...Here we go! 1. The STM1, does anyone have one of these? If so, Do you like it? Love it? hate it? tolerate it? 2. RG's (non-Prestige) I've looked in to several...

    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...
