I have a licensed floyd rose on my ibanez rg550. i just bought a whammy bar (the rose was second hand and didnt come with one) and it fits in fine. The problem is, I have to use a lot of strength to move it down or up. I know its not supposed to be this stiff, so is there something I need to do to the bridge or something? Did I get the wrong type of bar? Please help!!!

string gauge is .10s. the bridge is level yes, but obviously floating! any ideas? do i have to loosen some screws or sumat?
take the back plate off and loosen the springs by turning the screws holding the spring anchor/hook/claw/thing.

god knows why you replaced the existing trem on that guitar. original Edge Pro FTW.

Press down on the whammy til it touches the body. Look at the rear of the bridge (raised now, because of applied pressure), and you'll see a little hole in the right side of the bottom of the raised butt of the bridge. You'll need a special tool from Ibanez to tighten/loosen this hingehole adjustment that will, in turn, make the whammy easier/harder to pull up/down.

thanks! the whole guitar was actually second hand, thats what i meant :p and yeh, its the original edge pro ;D

thanks danielrobbyshor, i'll try that out!
the springs on the back are probaly to tight or you have to many. try taking some off.

thanks guys, ive sorted it now, it was just a case of adjusting the springs. i now have whammy power for the first time in 6 years!! YUUUUUUUUUUUS!!!
Just adjust the springs.

Edit: Oh, just noticed that you got it right.
