Hey guys, i have a problem with the bridge on my ibanez js100.
Its all in tune, been recently set up, locking nuts are tight, and yet whenver i use the whammy bar, it all goes out of tune!

Is this a problem with the bridge perhaps?

Check the string lockers, how old are the strings? its also good to lube up your trem posts using lipbalm/chapstick.

Lube around the posts (pivot screws), where it meets the bridge. Just apply a small amount and put it on 1 side, twist the post 360 degrees so that its evened out, twist it back again to its original position (360 back). Also dive couple of times to make sure that its distributed to the knife edges.

also make sure that looking a the guitar side on, the bridge is level with the guitar body.

If you ever get frustrated and want a fixed bridge, mail the floyd here, i will pay for the shipping, seriously.
