Just bought an Ibanex RG370DX. I know the manual (page 20) says to adjust the spring tension to keep the tremolo assembly in parallel with the guitar body, but what part of the tremolo assembly am I supposed to use to line it up. There is an obvious one using the bottom base plate, but I have read where that is wrong.
The manual shows (poorly) that the line is drawn right to the left of the fine tuners. And yes there is a very small area there that I could use as a base for a parallel line to align with the guitar body - is this it? The picture shows the line cutting through a "hump" which is what is confusing me. There is no hump on my RG370.

OK - I think I've got it after many hours of frustration. At the top of this forum "GEAR" Andrew has a link to a video (you tube) titled Restringing and Adjusting a Floyd Rose bridge. I never looked at part 2, but at 05:45 into that video, that's an edge III bridge and the instructor goes on to explain where it should be parallel wise and even says that some bridges should be parallel on the bottom like Pavel's example.

I can actually play this thing now - it's in tune - I will let it sit overnight and really wack it tomorrow.

Then I let it sit overnight - this is a joke right? - how could anybody play this guitar - one cannot get it in tune - and I am not talking about working the wammy bar. It will not tune up - and yes I have read all the instructions on tuning a floyd rose system. Probably will send it back.

I have not even plugged this POS in yet. I cannot get it in tune - NO WAY. I know this should work, but I am not pleased. I had it working for a brief period, but the action sucked. I thought todays method of making Guitars had changed for the better, but I see that is wrong. My 1961 Les Paul (46 years) will kill this action on the Ibanez - I will look for other brands - or probably keep the Paul.
