I've got a problem. I've purchased a Washburn RX25 with FR Special and I've been unable to intonate it since than, but that's just my incompetence, so I decided to buy the Tremol-No stopper, but I've found out, that the spring holding the FR are misaligned. Will I be able to install the stopper? Is it normal? Should I use the warranty and have it fixed? Is it something covered by the warranty?
Here's a picture:




Also, I've noticed that the bridge humbucker is a bit off, should I be worried about it, or just let it be?




Thanks for any response.

OK, I'm really sorry, I'm trolling with the humbucker, but the springs do concern me. Everyone who installed the Tremol-No had the springs aligned, not perfectly, but not as off as this.

I'd just return the Tremol-No if I were you and not worry about it.

IMHO, that device is just a gimmick. It doesn't fully solve anything; just trades off the floating trem woes proportionally with the stiffness of the trem operation.

And I wouldn't worry about trem sping alignment. Just focus on learning how to intonate.

Or give up and go with a sissy hard tail.

Oh thanks, I almost thought I've received a poorly built guitar.
Now, where's that allen wrench...

As long as you didn't pay more than $250 for it, you're OK. A Dean w/that same trem goes for $50 more and Epiphones and Fenders with it go for $400+.

At least it's not a Lyon (by Washburn) or a Hanna Montanna guitar and it has a whammy bar so you don't have to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OONnAVIQ3I
