I just bought an Ibanez RGT320Q and the tremolo system is entirely new to me. I have a Gibson which I am used to. Well my problem is tuning. When I try to tune it to standard tuning the bridge wont stop moving. But somehow I manage to tune it down a whole step, but I can't tune it to standard tuning.
Please help me. Just got the guitar and I would love to use it in tune tongue.gif

Dude your guitar is AWESOME biggrin.gif
We have had like 3 posts on the floyd bridge topic tonight laugh.gif .I guess i will let someone who can better explain it answer.Your tremolo has to be set .Idont understand though why it will tune 1/2 step but not up to standard.Pavel's on here and maybe he can help or you can PM him.I love that guitar makes me want to go rob a bank

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

I just cant stop looking at it laugh.gif
The attention to detail is unreal on this guitar.I love how the pattern changes right through the bridge and pickups.I have never seen that before.Is it a quilt top or what?How much did it cost if you dont mind me asking?

There are no troubles if you know what you are doing! I never had 1 single problem with Edge Pro bridge! And this is my second Ibanez with Edge pro! And if somebody asks me - i would sure buy the 3rd one with Edge pro again!:)

Yes it is a quilt top and it costs 2000$ off the internet. And that is a hell of a deal because I in Norway, and this guitar isnt even possible to buy in here. Thank god I have american grandparents to bring it over tongue.gif and the total cost of the guitar here(if they would sel it) would be about 5 or 6000$. Yes, Norway is EXTREMELY expensive
