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.

Yes peterorg54, its an awesome guitar rolleyes.gif ... Excuse me, but all this stress about problems with the floating bridge is not a thing you have to even think about when you buy a new Ibanez RG or JEM or whatever guitar with that system. Normally they come well set-up from the shop, no tears. And if you buy a used guitar with maybe an out-of-line tremolo, and if you don't have the required skills to sett-up a Floating-bridge, then spend the 30-50$ and let a pro do it please. And maybe - if you are a calm guy - the guitar trimmer man in the shop, will probably let you look over his shoulder the first couple of times - and just stay cool when everything looks like a birdsnest ... No fuss mate. This Guitar stays in tune for weeks and months cool.gif
