Tell your "friend" it is fine.

they're very similar to wilkinson bridges (which i have one on a custom built one of mine). they're not perfect, but no vibrato bridge is. but bridges like those are very easy to lock down if they're problematic (just tighten the springs until the back of the bridge touches the body of the guitar).
gear?

My friend is wondering if people have any problems with the bridge on this guitar http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-SAS36FMTG-Electric-Guitar?sku=517961
he is worried as it's gonna be his first real guitar.



no, there wont be any problems. but dont expect to do anything fun with that kind of trem system lol.

According to him someone said "I love everything about this guitar except the bridge. The saddles don't lock and the edges pushing to the studs are starting to bind creating tuning problems. I first installed locking tuners (sperzel) and replaced the nut with graphite thinking these would solve it but no dice. I don't know why but the SatPro bridge they have on this guitar is just poorly designed that it's so unstable that even bending a string would cause it to go out of tune. I have to stop every 3-4 songs during a gig just to retune. That's how bad it is.... "
Feed your mind.

the dude was probably using 10 or 11 gauge strings and doing full step bends without a properly set up trem. it goes out of tune because it's not properly set up, strings aren't stretched, and the added tension of a bent note brings the bridge forward.

another problem of not stretching strings = going out of tune quickly.

the guy that posted that comment's an idiot. you have the same problem with a floyd or any tremolo if you don't stretch your strings.
