Ok, I am painfully aware that they are close to trash, so no need for that (spare me pleeeassee)...however, I didn't think they'd be un-tuneable. I've tried everything possible from ibanezrules.com. No luck, I can get really close...but then the fine tuners at the bottom of the bridge have no effect.

Any suggestions besides breaking the p.o.s.?

Tried that to, now I did have the most success getting near-tune with that, but meh.

Block it off.
Sell it on ebay.
Take it off and melt it.
Craigslist it.
Send it to 183 cherry street little rock arkansas.

You're particular problem isn't Edge 3 specific, it happens with ANY floating bridge. Because it's floating everything you do tuning-wise affects all the other strings which means it takes a long time to get it to settle down, particularly if you're not used to them.

I've had an Edge III for ages without problems. I don't really use the trem much but it stays in tune perfect.

Well thinking something else was wrong with it, I took it back to GC...had someone look over it and say it was a problem with a nut, so I got a new one...no problems now.
