well I added a spring, they are arranged like /|||, and I got it tuned right, but the springs are still pretty tight, is this normal? Is there another way I should arrange the springs. Also, I am still having problems with the edge pro staying in tune, I tested the whammy out, and it stilll went out of tune, although it didnt really go out of tune a whole lot, any ideas?

When you said "the strings are at good tension", are all 6 at perfect pitch and in tune?


No, they are pretty much all flat, but they are close as far as tune goes, dunno bout pitch. I really dont know anything about intonation.

Arrange it in "||||" manner, lesser tension. Also, try lubricating your trem posts using chapstick/lipbalm, that helps a lot.

Ok, where should I leave a blank spot for the trem springs, like _|||| or |_|||, also, what are the trem posts?

Same thing as the pivot screws on page 1.

Actually it doesnt matter which hole you put it, but i guess ill recommend you doing "|| ||", two on top and two bottom.

Lubricate them like so


You do not need to take off ur entire trem. Just take a toothpick/small brush and apply it to the sides of your trem posts. Then
1) Turn them 360 degree either way
2) Rock your bridge a few times to ensure that the lubricant resides near the knife edges
3) Turn/adjust back the trem posts according to your action liking

hi, i bought a new 7 string guitar today with a licenced floyd rose.
the problem is that i tuned it but the bridge is way too high, i tried put more tension on the springs at the back and it is still too high.

should i put one spring on it (right now it has 3) or take one out or what shoud i do??

btw, my strings are 10´s and i tried to tune it on standard tuning


thanx a lot!!

You could arrange your springs in "\ | /" manner instead of ur normal "| | |" before trying to put another spring in there.

Also, from the picture (dunno if its true), your fine tuners seems like its too far off, always set it in middle position before tuning.

well, I posted this in another thread and was told to post this problem in here

I have an ibanez RG550 and was restringing it when one of the blocks that hold the strings in place fell out and was lost on my bedroom floor. After searching fruitlessly for about a week I resigned myself to the fact that it must be lost.

So...on searching the internet, I discovered that one can buy these components but the precise components are for floyd rose lo-pros when I have an Ibanez Edge lo-pro

Will these components fit or should I try and find the ibanez components?

Which one are you missing? The entire saddle or just that tiny cube inside the saddle?

What's best is you just give them a call and ask about payment n such.

Does anyone know how to go about lubricating the ball bearing on a ZR? I feel it sticking a little when I try to use it. I won't have to take the whole unit off the body will I?

I think you may just need the little string block, "the little cube thingy"
but i would call to be sure.

You'd have to take the whole system out

Can someone tell me how to change the action and intonation on the ZR Trem
#102
they both have to be equal I take it? How do you tell if they are or not?
#103
To change the action, adjust (B). They dont need to be equal, its all up to your preference.


To adjust intonation, use the intonation tool provided. Take off the intonation tool, screw it at the back (B), unlock the locking nut, then proceed with step 4-8 from the first page.

Hmm i have come across the problem that my fine tuners are now tuned in as far as they can, What do i do now?

Thanks.
#109
I have a cheap HSS strat copy and while fixing the strings quite a while ago, one of the tiny springs that hold up the low E string fell off. This caused that particular part to be at a bit of a slant and lower than the others. Where do I get the spring ( apparently a saddle mounting screw ) from?

And I keep looking at the guitar, and It always looks more like a spring than a screw. There are also no wholes where a screw would go.

Loosen the locking nut, rebalance your fine tuners so that each of them is set to middle position, retune your guitar.

I'm not quite sure what you mean, do you have a Floyd Rose or a normal tremolo?

If its a normal type tremolo system, then there's no telling which company made urs.
Normally, i'd say you're missing the saddle screw

Actually, I think I have a normal tremolo bridge. Seems like I'm ****ed .This has taught me a valuable lesson in guitars. Thanks anyway.
#114
if you have a "normal trem bridge ans lost the little spring that slips over the intonation screw, you can find a similar spring in a click pen.

let me show you a pic...



in that pic, is there a number near the screw or spring you lost?

Then it should be that little tiny screw, not a spring. Not sure whether they sell those individually without the saddle.

bridge height screws...

http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/screws_bridge.htm

or you can pick up a new set of saddles, and screws for ur guitar under $20.

or you can take out the other peg on that saddle and walk into a hardware store with it and as for a matching screw for the other side. it will have a head on it, but if it's the right height, it will fit.

Any chance of someone Sticky-ing a full ZR setup guide? I've also had trouble understanding Ibanez' illustrations in the manual. My S470 seems to be close to being set up right, but with the body contours, I can't tell if the bridge is fully parrallel or not. Tuning stability is fairly good, but I still need to adjust it regularly as the strings go flat. Sorry if someone's posted this already, but given the complexity Ibanez bestowed on this trem, it may be useful.
Regards,
Rob

PS: damn, i'm no longer looking forward to oiling my ZR by the way :S

Which part dont you understand? As for parallel goes, there's no need to be extremely worried if its off by tiny bit. The pics i've shown should at least interpret how parallel it should be with the body.

To improve your tuning stability, just make sure you've stretched your strings, and that both your locking nuts and your string lockers are fastened properly. That's pretty much if for the ZR, no needs for oiling or anything.
