    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...

    Dear fellow jemsiters, I have my RG 550 RFR for close to a year now and have noticed that the whammy bar getting 'looser' (despite having no 'play' whatsoever) it doesn't just sit on one position anymore like when it's new. Well since it's a 'push' in whammy unlike the floyd rose, my question...

    Hello! I just noticed with my Ibanez's ZR trem, that when I take the strings off and let it loose from the springs, the trem is kind of wobbly. Please note I do not mean the trem arm, I mean the unit itself. As most floating trems, my ZR rests on two screws/studs locking it into the body. The...

    Hi... i need your help. Because my Ibanez JEM 7vwh doesn't come back in full pitch after a pull-up of the tremolo (Lo-Pro Edge), i read about the Chapman Stick and bought one. Then I tried to take off the tremolo as described on the ibanezrules-site. As i watched that tremolo, i saw that one...

    I have a JEM 555, and I seem to be having a problem with the whammy bar. Every time I use it, it works itself loose and it wobbles (I think it's called backlash) which prevents me from bouncing the strings. It is still the original whammy that came with it. I was wondering if any of you guys...

    Up for sale is Elcid's old Digitech Whammy II. I bought it from him a couple months ago. I've been suffering from tendonitis from about the moment I got it (coincidence? I think not! Curse you Cid!!) and need some $$. Very cool pedal. This is the one Herman Li, Buckethead, and Trey Anastasio...

    Hey guys, up for sale is my Original Digitech Whammy 1. This is NOT the reissue, but the ORIGINAL Whammy 1 pedal. It is in good condition with some bumps and bruises. Nothing out of the ordinary, and it functions without issue. The original rubber on the bottom is gone. I also put some yellow...

    I've got an oldish mid-range Ibanez RG 320 DXQM. I've replaced the pickups, and now the only thing holding it back is the trem system. Lo-Trs II bridge sucks, worn out long ago, and doesn't keep itself at the zero point. I've been told that an Original Floyd Rose, Gotoh Floyd Rose, or (maybe...

    http://www.whatsthatdudeplay.com/2011/01/namm-morpheus-takes-flight-with-the-bomber/ Morpheus did well with the DropTune and should have the necessary technology to pull it off. I do like the detail of jumping the settings with a separate foot switch. Beats bending down with a magnifier and a...

    At the end of his song "War", played on the G3 2005 tour by Joe Satriani, how does he use his whammy bar to create a shimmering voice like thing, with a lot of Middle Eastern influence?

    I bought a Whammy 4 recently and while the effect works as expected the pedal treadle is giving me some troubles. I was wondering if there is a pitch shifter from another brand capable of doing 2 octaves up. I checked the Boss ME-70 but its shifting goes only one octave up and down. Thanks

    Just got a new Jackson Dinky DK2S from an online dealer, with "JT580 LP" bridge. It seems like a decent guitar (and the Sustainiac is a blast- main reason I got it). But the linkage between the trem arm and the bridge is sloppy, no matter how hard I try to tighten the finger-nut which holds...
