comment Ibanez Edge III Tremolo has 2 'Zero' points
This sounds good. I'm selling the guitar on, as I prefer the technical challenge of getting over the top sounds without the aid of a trem system - however the friend that is buying it may appreciate it if I can get it working perfectly. I'll give it a try :)

comment Ibanez Edge III Tremolo has 2 'Zero' points
@Markus, I did research on Ibanez player sites - they say the Edge 3 poles line up. If they don't, I'm just going to sell the lot and get another Fender - I've never had a problem with them.

@Markus, I knew about removing the bolts. Do I have to remove those metal dowel things that have the threads on the inside for the posts? Or can I just screw the new posts in?

Well, I already ordered an original floyd. I'll inspect the screws with a magnifying glass tonight. When I look at the knife edges on the thing, there's little bit of wear on the non-curved edge...

Yeah, I bit the bullet and bought an original floyd. Unfortunately, they don't have the exact hardware color of the Ibanez... But Black should be fine. Now I need to replace the crappy pickups in the thing, lol.

@gomad, I'm a fan of hardtails as well. I only bought this guitar because some clown on eBay was selling it at just over a quarter what it's supposed to be.

comment What is the best way to start learning to play guitar by ear
If you want to go quick and dirty, you can use VLC to slow stuff down. I've found it to be quite handy for nuanced riffs.

comment Damaged tremolo arm hole in Edge 3 bridge…
Good idea. The thing is growing on me though - I use pinch harmonics liberally, and the 'choking' sound the guitar makes with a rapidly lowered pinch harmonic is awesome!

comment Damaged tremolo arm hole in Edge 3 bridge…
It's new to me. Some clown was selling it for like, just over 1/3 the price. I have a fender strat that I use as my main axe, tuned to drop-b. This guitar is meant to be for school bands and such that don't approve of such brutality. I'm thinking of just replacing the bridge with an OFR/Gotoh Licensed Floyd. The Edge 3 on this thing is either really retarded or more worn than it looks. You tune it, play it for 30 seconds (without using the tremolo) and it's out. The cycle goes on for hours. Then you get bored and change tunings. You start over. It sucks.

Ibanez trems don't screw in, they drop in and have a magnet. But this may be beneficial to people with strats who stumble upon this :)

comment Stripped strap pin screw
This sounds like it's going to be dangerous for my nice black matte finish... I'll do it as a last resort :)

comment Should I worry about this strap pin?
It's a wiggle on the button that gets screwed onto the guitar, but the screw itself is rock solid. I guess it just means that the screw isn't tight enough, but I think I need a deeper pilot hole to make it tighter.
