the DST series does...


the DSOT (discovery series original tremolo) used OFR. they were few and far between, sold for 599.99 new, complete dump in sales, went to 200.00, then 150.00 to get them out of the warehouses. basically a crappy crappy crappy basswood body (terrible routing, terrible wood, the trem claw screws were 1/8 of an inch away from my neck pickup, they went all the way through the body, haha). the neck was actually fantastic, perfect frets, everything, pickups and electronics were complete ****, they put the FR on in the US and out the door they went.

Ultimate set-up guide for Edge III. Carefully unscrew EdgeIII. Purchase OFR. Install OFR.


You should have the OFR BEFORE you take out the Edge III. If the bridge is out, then the strings will be off. If your strings are off for a while, your neck might get messed up I assume.

if setup properly, like any trem, the edge III will perform well.
sure, it wont perform like a lo pro, edge or edge pro, BUT it will return to somhat reasonable tuning...nothing that cannot be corrected by the fine tuners.
Now, when you buy a gutiar in that price, you CANNOT expect a £180 bridge unit on a £300 guitar..its ridiculous...so put up!

And the Edge III is a pretty good bridge. Much better than what the other brands are using. It actually stays in tune well.

who's going to listen to a guy that tells you to take all your strings off at the same time just to change the strings, regardless of whether its a sucky trem of not
I had to get a replacement after I broke my G string. What a pain in the ass!

If you think of it, pushing the trem bar down and getting the strings all flappy is the same thing.

Don't leave em off for days, but 5-10 minutes to change strings isn't a big deal.

No it's not - if you dump the trem down while playing you've got the strings there to balance with the springs and bring you back to pitch.

If you take all the strings off the guitar then you've got a ballache of a time trying to re-tune, there's simply no point taking them all off. Change strings one at a time, it's a lot quicker to simply bring the new string up to tension before replacing the next one. It's also a lot less wear and tear on the knife edges which is naturally a concern on a cheap bridge with flaky knife edges like the Edge 3.

I think they all do that.
I don't really worry about it, it looks good on my guitar, not sure about yours though.

Perhaps not the most in-depth guide, but for those who are experienced with trem systems the picture alone is enough to get that Edge III sorted.

I recently got my RG350 back from being fully setup and serviced, and the tech himself with decades of experience didn't know about this subtle difference on the Edge III. I didn't complain however as he did a fabulous job on every other area of the guitar.

As for the Edge III being a suckish trem, well sure it isn't the best out there. But it's certainly far from the worst when taken care of, and considering that most of the "better" trems would cost more than a mid-range RG..great value. Having said all that, I'll be replacing it when I get the cash

I was wondering if someone could tell me how tight the springs on a tremolo should be. I have an Ibanez 320 DXQM w/ a Edge 3 Floating Tremolo. I adjusted the bridge pegs to set the front of the bridge level with the guitar. Now what? Prop the bridge up (level with the guitar) and, tune the guitar, right? And then take the prop out and the strings will hold against the strength of the springs. Correct? What physics law is that based on?
