    Hi guys, 1st post here, First, I never had the chance to play a 7-string before, and I can't test such guitar where I live. I searched a lot on the forums, but I have some specific questions. So... I need help! I currently own a JEM 555 BK. It's a 2003 model, with an Edge Pro II. I must say...

    The guys at Ibanez didn't think the edge pro bridge out I mean its all good when you want a stiff whammy bar as that locks the bar in but for me I need it loose so it doesnt get in the way of my picking hand and nail polishing it up doesnt work for me So I waited till I wore the bushing a bit...

    I just went through the second edge trem bar, snapped the same as the first time right where the bar gets smaller for the bushings. Does anybody else have this problem? It's seems like a flaw in the bar design to me. I have other bars that "fit" and I can use those. I don't think I'll be...

    hey, i have an edge pro trem system on my new rg1570. But the arm that it came with doesnt fit in it tight at all. It's barely being held in the socket, and it's extremely loose. It even wiggles around while in the socket. Is there any way to fix this? i've even tried other Ibanez whammy...

    Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years?? Mine are: 1. Les paul-for inventing the electric guitar 2. Jim Marshall-obvious reasons.. 2. Jimmy hendrix-for being really the 1st guy to play guitar that way. He made...

    Hey everyone! I'd like to share with you a little trick...actually THREE little tricks I've devised. 1. the unwanted "warble" (when playing with a floating bridge you pick a string which makes the bridge vibrate excessivly....ie same sound as when you roll your "R's" with your tongue) to stop...

    Hey guys I just wanted to share this tip I found on Jemsite and it really works great. I have a RG 2550 EGK and my tremolo bar was stiff when I first got it (when I would put it horizontally it would stay horizontal). But now it just falls down after I'm done using it. I know I'm responsible...

    I need the little nylon plastic collars that go around the base of the whammy bar for Edge and Lo Pro style whammy bars please. Would be willing to buy in small bulk, like 30 or so.

    I was playing yesterday, and I noticed that the trem arm was becoming very loose. So I attempted to pull at out, and I bam, it's broken. Now I have a whole piece of an arm stuck in my trem. How should I go about getting it out?

    :x Here's where I found it. You'll find more customised guitars there, all of which I don't like. :wink: But of course, to each his own. http://www.romeoknight.net/GearContent.html If you decide to watch them, you should check out this guy's whammy bars. It seems this guy puts some kind of...

    I have two (2) arms/whammy bars to suit Original Edge/Lo-Pro/Edge Pro bridges. Both in great condition. Nylon washers seem to be fine, too (you can feel them raised a little above the surface of the bar itself, which is what you want). $15USD each + shipping + PayPal 3% = Bargain! Contact via...

    Hey guys I just won an Original Edge trem from 1987 on the 'Bay and I had a few questions for you. I'm finally replacing the trem on my 1995 RG470 with something a little better than it came with, the Edge. I'm hoping I've picked up a decent quality Edge for not too much cash. Does this...

    I checked out vai.com a couple of days ago and saw that Vai is giving away a bunch of gear to commerate the 10th anniversary of his website. Ironic as it seems, no UV10th or a new Anniversary Jem. Anyways I'm not really sure how old this website is, but I remember coming here when I was just...

    Hi, Anyone have any idea what the whammy bar on a lo-pro edge is made out of? My RG6-CSD2 has all chrome hardware and the black bar just looks wrong. I'm guessing from the 'research' i've done that Ibanez never made chrome whammy bars to match the hardware, with them all being black, so i'm...

    I heard before a 22 fret sound more "fuller" "better (opinion) than a 24 fret necks. So how about 21 fret? Does it even sound even better fuller? Or is it the same? Or there IS sound different but based on personal opinion?
