Ok... I got a new ibanez rg370dx (I like it so if you don't that's your problem) and after the strings stretched they all went flat... sfter bringing them to pitch... locking and fine tuning them, I noticed that my trem was at a slight angle...

I May be wrong, not muche experience with the andgle of the edge III, but does this look right to any of you? because i don't exactly know for sure.

Its hard to tell from your picture...so I'll just give you the general info (as I know it).

I've owned one guitar with an Edge 3. Ideally, the trem should be parallel with the guitar's body. If the angle is drastic, you might have to set up your bridge.

Now, that being said. I would invest in a different trem. The Edge III drops out of tune very easily. I suggest the Edge Pro or Edge ZR.

Well, in California, people carry around devices that control the minds of bears. So expect to see people walking their bears.

Also, don't be surprised if some robot hookers try to solicit sex to you on the streets.

open the back and tighten the screws until the springs pull the bridge back enough to be parallel to the body

Don't do this.

it looks like there's not enough tension on the springs. idk though.

That's very close to parallel.

The edge 3 has an angled baseplate. As such, the parallel is a bit different from a regular FR, like almost every LFR and the OFR.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

ah, I see, but even with this knowledge, the trem still doesn't seem to be parallel to my eyes. Idk, maybe my eyes are playin tricks on me right now.

It looks parallel to me - but the action's really low.

That looks okay, and if you are actually going to add a little more tension to the screws, detune, (make sure you detune first! and detune a little on each string at a time or else your high ones will snap!!!), and then maybe turn the screws 1/2 to like 3/4th of a full turn to the right to tighten the springs. Remember, edge does have an angled baseplate, so it will kind of angle up like that.

Seriously, it's already parallel.
