my ibanez has an edge lll tremolo and if i push the bar down, the whole guitar goes flat. if i pull it up, everything goes sharp. everything is locked down and the guy who does all my repairs says he can't figure out the problem. i'm thinking about buying a whole new tremolo system for it so just need some advice

perhaps your strings wore a groove in the locks so they don't get locked down anymore.

get a Floyd Rose Original, much better quality
