It takes a nice amount of work to shoe horn a Lo-Pro Edge into the route for a Lo-TRS. It's not impossible, but it's certainly not a drop-in replacement. If you want a better trem the best two options are a TRS-Pro which is another Takeuchi made trem, but made with better materials, or getting an OFR7. Those will both drop in much easier than a Lo-Pro Edge 7.

Honestly though, if adjust the trem twice a year is a "hassle" then there's no trem system on this planet that you'll be truly happy with. Also worth mentioning, for a few hundred more than an OFR7 you could probably find an RG7620 in decent shape.

Need help with setting up a trem?

Here's my girl:




I've had her since 2000, she was my first "good" guitar. Unfortunately, I never played it much because I hated the stock pickups so she sat in the case for years. I almost sold it a couple times, but the playability always prevented me from getting rid of it. I'm glad I kept her around as she's a screamer with the Crunchlab/Liquifire combo. It went from being hidden away in a case for years to my main axe in my new band.

The only mods are the pickups and the trem is blocked off. I didn't get along too well with the stock trem and since I have a few other guitars with working Floyds I probably won't even bother setting this one up to float. I'd love to snag another RG7420 in Magenta Crush one day!

EDIT: Sorry for the blurry pics, too much coffee this morning!!!

Just picked this up off Fleabay. Needs some work, it's missing the pressure pads for the nut and the jack cover. Sourced a jack cover that I think will work. Ibanezrules is back ordered on the pressure pads. If I ordered a generic 7 string locking nut from somewhere would the parts fit the RG?

I've yet to find a set of generic locking nut pads that fit the nut on 7-string Ibanez guitars.

Yeah, I figured as much. Going to order from Ibanezrules, just have to run one chrome pad for a little while.

Bump DAMNIT!

I've actually had this guy for a couple of weeks, and had pics too but was just too damn lazy to post em. Funny thing is, the guy I bought it from had it in drop F# with those daddario .009-.055 and i put EB .010-.056 on for standard and they're still way too light.

You'll be wanting to use 12-56-70 for Dropped F# dude.

9-55 would be good for dropped C#

Okay, so my 7620 is a 99 with the 1-piece maple neck. The truss rod needs a special box wrench to be adjusted (I'm guessing they swapped it for traditional allen key when they changed to the 3-piece neck in 2000 ?), so would any of you guys know if I need a 7mm pipe wrench (WR70PD) or 8mm (WR80PD) ?
Thanks !

Seeking A little advice ABOUT possible PICKUP CHANGE:

swapping just the neck Pu for a LIQUIFIRE 7 , would be ok (leaving the other "stock") in terms of balance sounding instrument?
I found 1 guy sellling a liquifire7 for 50 , would have to nail soon if i really want it .

the guy who sells that one ,
has also a crunchlab and would let the package go for 110+shipping,in the case .

I 'm more keen towards the liquifire only ,
being not a guitarist honestly ,
and i find the stock bridge is not bad sounding .

Any advice about?
Thank You guys!

you need a 7mm.... and no, the 3-piece necks have the same type of trussrod (one w/a nut on the end, no allen needed)

Honestly, the stock pickups aren't too bad, but I think the cl/lf combo would be a dramatic improvement, and that's a good price for the set, so I say go for it.

Yep i know it's quite apreciated combo.
What if i only would take the liquifire?
Would it be a nice blend with "stock" bridge pu?
Or i would have a little trouble with balance (tone or volume?)

__________________________________

First is economical reason (the liquifire is less costing ) ..

Then ,maybe it's just my impression ,from the clips i did check around
i feel like the bridge pu is quite "signature" sounding,
am i wrong .
Good sound,only would'nt like to have a so similar to JP just because now is the "hype" about them.
