In the past I've only had Ibanez guitars with lo edge pro trems and loved them. This time I thought I'd take a risk and ordered the Hellraiser C7 from sweetwater. The guitar is great except for the floyd rose 1000 trem on it. The springs creak when using it, it takes a lot of pressure to press it down and when you release it it doesn't come back into tune. Pressing down and releasing leaves the strings flat... raising it and releasing leaves them sharp. The lo edge pro have been the complete opposite for me, being noiseless, needing a light touch and always coming back into tune properly. So, I reached out to Schecter and rather than try to help me troubleshoot, they just told me to return it to the dealer. I've googled and read alot about the tuning issue and the most common suggestion is to use chapstick on the posts and edge. But this thing is brand new. I feel like it shouldn't need that right out of the box... but I also don't just want to send it back. I guess I'll try the chapstick next time I change the strings. Does anyone have any other ideas? Also, any suggestions on better springs that won't make noise and might allow it to move more freely than it does? Or, does anyone know if I'd be able to just swap out a lo edge pro 7 bridge in place of the floyd? Thanks.
