so im changing the strings on my ibanez rgir27e and i cant seem to unlock the a string from the bridge. it has an ibanez edge zero ii trem i believe. i tried turning the screw but the screw just came out and the little nit of metal didnt move. anyone know what could be wrong or how to fix it?
You're not turning the fine tuning screws, are you?
^this, also there is a tutorial for trem set-ups on here,
dspellman no its the screws to unlock the strings on the bridge
bobafettacheese i know how to do it, ive done all the other strings its just like stuck idk
I've used a bit of BreakFree (it's a gun oil, but there are others) and a little...uh...persuasion to loosen up a saddle. Just don't jack it up when you do. I usually suggest a bit of machine oil or even WD40 on the bridges (there are other lubricants that should be used elsewhere to maintain a Floyd-style bridge) to keep then from locking up due to sweat and corrosion.
