Hey all! I have a JEM7v from 2007, all stock, with the Edge Pro 3, my most stable guitar I ever had, but in the last years, I start feeling that the bride is not "jumping" or making "purr" like its suppose to, or behave like standard floating bridges.

I tried to tight everything I can on the bridge, and also to tight enough the whammy bar to be tight and stable inside the socket, but its the same. im adding a video that you can see how it behave like now, I will appreciate any help or tips!

What you are describing is called "flutter". Do you have trouble with it returning to perfect pitch when diving or pulling back on the bar? And does that bar have the same type of nylon bushings that the orignal edge has? Because if the bar feels loose of has play in the socket, you can get new bushings.

I sometimes take a lighter to them while they are on the bar. It causes the nylon to swell a little so they fit tight again.
