Hey guys -

For the past year and a half, I've been playing an Ibanez RG370DX.. love it to death.

I'm not sure if I've lost a part off it. It's got a Floyd-Rose, and in the guitar manual, there seems to be a screw that is in the manual, but not on the guitar.. The Bar is very loose, if I bend over while holding the guitar the bar comes flying out (Already have lost it..). The bar also moves inside of the hole.

Is there a part missing?

According to the instruction manual for an Edge 3 tremolo, you aren't missing anything at that area. You should be able to take the tremolo arm, put two bushings on the thing, and push it down into the arm socket until it snaps firmly into place.

Well I know that, but the casing on the hole is extremely loose. I had never noticed until I was at a festival and I reached for my whammy for Malignant Narcissism and It wasn't there

Do you have some bushings placed on the tremolo arm?

No.


Then that is most likely your problem: there is nothing to allow the tremolo arm to snap into the socket and stay there. Try checking out the instruction manual for the Edge III if you haven't already: http://www.ibanez.com/support/manuals.aspx (Its under Electric Guitars w/ Locking System)

the edge III trem arm doesn't have bushings on it does it?

when I got my RG the guy gave me a trem arm out of an Edge III and it didn't fit in the Edge pro. it had no bushings around it at all.



that's for the Edge III and Edge Pro II

and this is the one for the edge/edge pro.

Your tremolo doesn't have any bushings. To tighten your arm torque, insert the arm and dive down the bridge. You'll be able to see a small allen screw at the side (Labeled 1), tighten that.
