Hey,

i've had an Ibanez RG 370 DX for a year now...
living in india, i had to pay a lot for it (around $550 ) and although the guitar aint bad, i hate the fact that the tremolo doesn't have a locking nut to screw it in place...

thanks to a lil thing called gravity (btw newton's birthday today, damn him) i have to pick it up from where it's suspended every time i use it...

have tried putting rolled up paper, etc but it doesn't work convincingly

any way around this??

What?

Try using something more solid than paper to block the trem.

Methinks that your a bit confused son. The RG370DX has a locking nut, I know, I have one. And why are you using bunched up paper to block the trem? Are small pieces of wood that hard to find in india?

Guys, he's saying the trem ARM won't stay put and he has to grab it.

I don't know what the best way to fix this on an Edge III is, but let's at least address the right problem
GMW hot-rod telecaster
GMW soloist
PRS Custom 24

Substitute the stage for the wire, and he's got it.

If you want the arm stiffer, you can adjust it on the side. Just push the arm down, there's a little hole, go in there with a small allen key and screw it tight.
I'm currently working on a system to generate MIDI from the motion of a guitar. More info coming soon.

There should be a bolt that controls the torque of the arm on the underside of the tremolo, I believe. Tighten that, you should be fine.
