Ok so I wanted to get a screw that was stripped removed from my trem claw on my edge 3 now I was wondering what is the proper way to reinstall the trem? I have 4 springs for it and it was working well with that setup but I dont know how to get it back the way it was. Any help is defintley appreciated!

I dunno how much this is gonna help but:

Start by putting all the parts (including the bridge itself) in somewhat correct positions.
Now, set the springs in both the tremolo block and the claw.(Its a good idea having your strings attached already, but with low tension, so you can work freely.) Screw the claw a bit into the "wall". Now, tighten the strings (not the springs! Im having a hard time imagining how you could tighten a spring tough.) You should tune them to about D standard, so that theyre still not all the way up.(Unless you play in D standard normally)
Tighten the claw springs so that the tremolo unit is tilting a little bit towards the inside of the body.( If you play in D standard, make it level) Now, tune up to the desired tuning, tighten/loosen the claw so that the tremolo unit is level. That should do the trick.

This is about as good it gets without pics. Good luck!

EDIT: I noticed you have an Edge trem. I dont have one, but the procedure should be the same.
