I own an Ibanez Steve Vai Jem 7v which I bought in August, and I love it. Recently though, the whammy bar has been making a weird scratching noise when I turn it in circles while attached to the bridge (Edge Pro bridge). I don't think this is normal, seeing as it only started recently. Should I bring it to a store to get it fixed, or is it something I could do at home? (I have little repair experience)

Thanks,

Joel

There's probably just something caught in the threads, take it out and see if you can see anything in there.

I tried that last night and I could not see anything inside. I started to poke around in it with a toothpick, but I'm still getting the same noise
