The thing were you put the bar on is broken on mine, I not sure why. I've reattached it several time, adjusted it, etc. but it comes of after a couple f days of use which is really annoying so unless I find another solution I want to buy a new one. Also, this is a cheap Licensed Floyd so the upgrade to an original may be worth it

when/how do i know if i need new springs because currently i have 3 in the /|\ position with the claw as far in as possible with the bridge still being pulled up a little.

also, when restringing/tuning, do i remove the block from the cavity after restringing? or after tuning?

I have a problem with an Edge Zero II bridge.

While looking at adjusting the action during a string change, I noticed one of the knife edges had slipped off the post completely and was resting lower down the post. I guess it had been doing this for a while (the tremolo isn't used though) so I removed the springs and the bridge to be able to judge any damage on the post or knife edge, and while it had removed the finish from the post, it didn't look too bad.

I re-installed the bridge, after setting the action on the posts, and tuned the guitar up with the trem blocked. When I removed the block, the bridge was sitting very high and I started to add spring tension when I suddenly ran out of adjustment. The problem is that the Edge Zero II doesn't have the usual FR springs and claw that screw right into the wood, but a wheel that you turn to adjust tension and no room to add more springs.

What to do? The guitar is fully playable now, with the blocked bridge, but I'm a bit lost about how I would get enough spring tension now. I use 9-42 strings, so I haven't changed the gauge and I can't understand why this happened.

I'm new to setting up floating trems though, so any advice appreciated. (I may have overlooked something completely obvious.)

Thanks in advance.

I think setting up a Floyd Rose is very difficult if the person don't know the proper way. So this will help who need a guide for setting up a Floyd Rose.

I'm having trouble setting up my FR guitar, I blocked the Floyd because the springs are worn out and because the Fr is a cheapie. But I can't get this sucker set up! Neck relief is good, but on the A and D strings, I have dead notes on frets 15-22 (approx). My Bass E string is too high and the next two are too low. G is little buzzy but manageable, B and E are ok. So whats up? I heard this problem can be related to the nut not being conformed to the radius, and this guitar has a compound radius(12-16 I think). Every note below the 15 fret is perfect on all strings.

I managed to finally get some new strings on my Ibanez. I tried 9's but didn't like how they felt, so i put in 10's like i use in my other guitars. It took a while to adjust the bridge properly, but i got it in tune and the bridge is level. The only issue i'm having is fret buzz on the first 3 frets on all strings. Not sure if it needs fret work or a truss rod adjustment.

Thanks in advance.
