Nastretch ko naman yung strings sir, yung problema lang kasi nagtry ako itest kung nagslip yung strings kahit naka lock yung nut. Nagslip yung high e kasi plinuck ko yung strings sa gitna nung nut at tuners at bumababa yung pitch pagbinababa ko din yung bar.

new strings meaning dapat mag-aadjust karin sa tension spring sa likod. dapat maging tension ng string = tension ng spring. para laging nasa tono.
at tamang higpit sa lucking nut.

Baka kulang sa higpit yung lock nut screws kaya hindi nappress mabuti ng pressure pads yung strings.
I think masyado ko nga ata nahigpitan, kasi may tiny, shallow scratches na yung pads na kita sa pics below. How tight is tight enough nga ba?

Naadjust ko na rin sir, pagnagrestring kasi ako bina-block ko yung buong trem from moving para pagnatapos kong itono d na gaano iaadjust sa springs

That's pretty normal, depende rin sa material nung pressure pads. Mayroon kasi made out of zinc, hardened steel, etc.. which have varying degrees of hardness.

Personally, sa akin, pag hindi ko na maikot yung lock nut screw with the allen wrench, that should be tight enough.

Sige, higpitan ko na lang and hope for the best haha.

Hirap palang i-maintain ang ganitong gitara. Pero masaya din naman gamitin.

Halos wala pang kanal yang locking nut mo.. hehehehe.  wag kang matakot higpitan nang ma-igi. Mura lng mga allen screw sa bolts & nuts.
try mo rin pag-palitin yung nut sa 5-6 string & 1-2 strings.

^ Actually, medyo may grooves na yan. Yung sa low e string, nahulma nga yung winds nung string dun sa pressure pad at medyo may groove na mababaw lang din yung sa G at high e, though hindi naman ganun ka lalalim na kapareho na ng thickness ng string yung grooves.

Nacheck ko pala yung screws sa likod nung nut, medyo maluwang  :eek: kaya hinigpitan ko na, ayun nabawasa ng konti, kaso nagslip talga yung strings sa nut kahit nakalock na.

ang ginagawa ko, i tighten the screw upto a point na hindi ko na maikot yung allen wrench. tapos may last quarter turn lang akong mejo may effort na pag ikot. just to really know na its tight enough.
yung mga very small grooves sa pressure pads normal lang yung. yung pads ng edge pro if original is hard enough. taon bago mo pa pudpod. base dun sa pag kwento mo, i think baka hindi na sa nut yung problem mo. if nag out of tune sya kahit mag pluck kalang, siguro nasa tension mo na or sa tremolo mo mismo. check mo kung yung knife edges ng trem mo. plus edge pro are notorious about its bridge post turning. kaya may mod na stud lock about sa edge pro. pero kung dati wala namang ganitong problem at recently lang after restring, big factor is the tension plus the trem knife edge.

and how was the tonal response of your warpig to your taste compared from your previous sd distortion?  :?

That is an Ibanez Edge 3 trem. Floyd Rose is a brand. Double-locking floating trem is the correct way to call it.

Based on previous posts in this thread, yes you may replace your Edge 3 trem with a Floyd Rose trem but you have to do some minor rerouting on the cavity for it to fit. Some replaced theirs with a Gotoh trem.

in a nutshell, on standard tuning the two seems to have a similar voicing. but on drop C# which is the guitar is tuned to, the bkp have more clarity. i like the mids better. strings ring out much better on heavy distorted chords. thats on a swamp ash body. ymmv.

pickup swaps again

before: bkp warpig chrome covers black hex bolts
after: bkp aftermath black covers with SS hex bolts


my thoughts: on heavy distorted chugs, the mids and highs sounds a bit "nasal". like a dmz titan i have. im not sure if i like it. the cleans are glassy though which i like. might put it on a basswood and revert back to warpigs.

I currently own an Ibanez RG1570 bought it from Mr. Freak.

Question:
what do i need to do to remove the rust from the Bridge?

do you guys (who've done it) detach the bridge and soak it in WD40?  :eek:

Never tried anything like WD40,  baka masyado corrosive. Madali lang talaga matangal yung coating sa mga Edge Pro,

Since I can't source Ibanez SureGrips (bottom) for my other trem arms, i decided to create my own.
Bought a shrink tube from the local electronics store for 38/meter and fitted 2 layers on the trem arms.
Works perfectly.
