I have an Ibanez RG350MDX with the Edge 3 trem, and its been surprisingly awesome. The only thing is that I cant get the trem bar to stay in place when i pull up, any suggestions?

What do you mean stay up?

Like you pull it and have it stay in place?

Thats impossible, the whole idea of a floating trem is that its held in place by the tension from the strings and the springs in the body.

OHHHHH.
I get it now, i have the same problem, the trem bar will come out of its hole when you try pulling up. Mine does the same, and i'm not sure what it is, maybe a small rubber band around it to fill the slight gap would help.

Its loose, meaning if your standing up it keeps falling down towards the ground?


Im pretty sure the edge 3's have a nut around the bar you can tighten to stop it from doing that

Yeah, maybe one of those rubber bands people use on braces may work, they're tiny.

i guess i can live with a loose trem for now, but it is so annoying messing with the trem playing live

Just do what I did with my edge III... Throw the tremolo bar away.

There's a tiny allen wrench slot in the bottom of the arm socket. Tighten It!

There are two areas which must be tightened with allen screw. Dive the trem and you'll see them but your'e ****ed till your next string change.

Dive the trem, and you'll see it if you look from the back.

Do not put rubber bands round your trem arm

More to the point, why does nobody ever bother to find out how their stuff work?
