Hey, he was giving you real advice. Ebay is the best source pf miscellaneous parts like these. You could always replace the entire unit.

You can order replacement parts from ibanez, I'd link you but I'm really lazy tonight.

and this, you can find virtually anything on ebay especially with a part no. You could probably find a replacement mouse wheel for your specific model and brand for your mouse if you wanted to.
Don't be a dick to people trying to help you, I remember when you were abusing everyone who suggested your MG hasn't got the best tone and it would be a good idea to upgrade.

Well if you can't order them from Ibanez then ebay is probably your only option? Or buy a whole new bridge.

as i attempted to state before ive already tried ebay and no luck, ive tried cottam guitars, ive tried just about every parts website on the internet, and ive been told ibanez dont ship parts to the uk.

and wether or not ebay was good advice, making a spelling comment is just pathetic.

ah thanks, hmm moneys really hard to come by for me right now so i wouldnt be able to justify spending 200 quid on a bridge for a guitar i bought for 250 new, when it could be fixed with like 3 pounds worth of parts. so im gonna go to my local music shop and see if they can order in parts for me, and if not then i have a backup plan

If you're going to start Pit memes, this thread's gonna get closed awful quick.

Now, to answer your question, yes an Edge Pro should direct swap with your current Edge III. http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f21/edge3-replacement-tremolo-68062.html

Things don't just "vanish". Apparently you're as lazy with maintenance as you are about your spelling. Don't satisfy your need to vent your frustration at your own incompetence by taking it out on other users.

Best of luck in your quest for the necessary replacements.

Have a nice day.

im not lazy you jackass, my typos fair enough whatever but as for my parts missing i live in a house with a very curious 2 year old foster child, and a brother who has no respect for my possessions! i am extremely careful with my guitars and other things i own because im always broke and can never afford to replace things!

so think before you start posting like you know everything!

edit, and no that is not the part i need the edge III blocks are shaped differently.. good god some of you people think your on another ****ing level!

careful now. you'll end up getting reported. i've gotten it for saying such. as far as the 2 year old. rule number #176 no excuses play like a champion

you might have to import dude, i believe someone posted about a place that has 10 dollar international postage. that's pretty good. that'd be where i'd look.
#28
ive already been bloody reported, so now im going to bite my tongue and keep my opinions of certain members to myself for a while, and i will have a look on ibanez rules, i didnt know they shipped internationally, thanks for the heads up.

Is it possible a 2 year old managed to remove properly fastened clamping blocks? Doubtful, but I won't argue the point. Suffice to say, they didn't just "vanish". These parts don't just fall off. Your edge III didn't "totally screw you over". That was accomplished by you or the child.

Whats the point of coming on here and being an ass to everyone that was trying to help you? If you think you are so much better than us, then why come here and ask a question? Just like the guy above me said, they didn't just fall off. Why should we spend our time searching on the internet for a part you ****ed up, when you can't even show the smallest bit of respect to anyone that tries?
#31
i wasnt being an ass to the people trying to help me i was being an ass to the people who were being asses to me, a simple "oh your spellings not so good" would have been enough if he REALLY felt the need to comment, the way he said it was obnoxious, as was the other guy.

things go missing, it doesent have to be anyones fault but yes bits can fall off of things, i could have been changing a string or anything and it could have gone, if you thought that me saying it had vanished was implying it had just randomly been taken by some supernatural force for no reason at all, then your extremely silly.

obviously i know that over the course of time, something i have done, or someone else has done, has caused it to fall off, end of the day they are not there now.

in fact **** it its obvious this thread has just become a god damn argument, you all think im a twatter and i think the same about most you right now in this particular thread, i stick for myself against someone who made an arsey remark about my typos, and suddenly everyones on my back for being arrogant. when in fact all id done was not allow myself to be subject to snide sarcasm about something unrelated to the topic.

and when i wasnt exactly very polite to the guy who gave me the ebay link to the wrong part, that was because he was the one who was rude in the first place, and then he comes in thinking hes awesome because he thinks he can make me look like an idiot by finding the part i need on ebay, after id already said id searched myself.

I left you the link, and the spelling remark.

The spelling thing was not meant to be obnoxious, or rude. Nobody wants to read a bunch of garbled bull. At least take the time to spell correctly and explain things. If your from a non english speaking country than its understandable.

I'm sorry the link was not for the right part you need. I was just trying to help you. Is that any reason for you to cuss at me?


That said, there was no excuse for you to call me an asshole, or act the way you have to everyone else throughout this thread.

to be honest only you and one other guy have been the blunt of my frustration, and i apologise for going off on one at you about the remark on my spelling, to me it sounded like you were just trying to be arrogant and snooty towards me.

i do try to take the time to correct my spelling errors, but i am using my dads crappy ass keyboard, with sticky damn keys, and have severe bruising of the nervous system in my left hand and wrist, making typing accuratley, and playing guitar, and just about everything else that involves the use of my hand difficult.

so there i apologise for the way i acted, but i still stand by the fact that they way you spoke to me seemed a bit arsey.
