1. TREMOLO ARM INSTALLATION
Insert the tremolo arm into the arm
socket and turn the Arm torque
adjustment nut (A) clockwise until it stops.
2. ADJUSTING THE TREMOLO ARM ROTATION
TORQUE LOW TRS II TREMOLO
To allow the arm to swing freely.
Turn the Arm torqueadjustment nut
1-2 turns counter clockwise.
3. ADJUSTING THE STRING HEIGHT
1.The height adjustment of
the tremolo can be set by using the two 3mm
adjustment screws on either side of the tremolo unit.
2. Raise or lower the tremolo
to the desired string height using
a 3mm allen wrench.
4. ADJUSTING THE INTONATION
Intonation adjustment is usually necessary
when new strings are fitted
(it can also be affected by the angle of the tremolo
Adjusting the intonation is performed
by moving the individual string
saddles forward or backward.
To check the intonation : Use an
electronic tuner and tune the guitar
to a standard pitch.
Note: All lbanez guitars use A--440
for a standard pitch. Play the harmonic
at the 12th fret, compare it to the fretted note at
the 12th fret, these notes
should read the same on the tuner.
Before adjusting the intonation, first
determine the direction that
the saddle needs to be moved.
Note: If the 12th fret harmonic pitch
is lower than the fretted note, the saddle needs
to be moved back. If the 12th fret harmonic is higher
than the fretted note, the saddle
needs to be moved forward.
1. Loosen the pressure pad screws on the top lock with
a 3mm allen wrench
and loosen the string to be adjusted.
2. Loosen the saddle lock down
screw® on the saddle to be adjusted with
a 2mm allen wrench.
Note: Only loosen the screw enough
to move the saddle.
3. Adjust the saddle forward
or backward to the proper position and tighten
the saddle lock down screw .
On the bass plate there are two holes
for each saddle lock down screw.
The purpose of this is to accommodate for different
tunings or different gauges of strings.
4. Tune the guitar to pitch
and recheck the intonation. If the intonation is still
not correct repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. When the guitar is properly
adjusted, tighten the top lock pressure
5. REPLACING THE STRINGS
LOW TRSII TREMOLO
Note : For ease in retuning, it is recommended
that one string at a time be changed and tuned.
1. Loosen the pressure pad lock screws on the top lock
with a 3mm allen wrench. Loosen the string by turning the tuner
and then remove the string.
2. Loosen the string stopper
bolt by using a 3mm allen wrench, and remove
the string from the saddle.
3. Cut off the ball end of
the new string above the string winding and insert the
end of the string in between the main saddle and the
string holder block.
4. Tighten the string stopper
5. Wind the string around the
tuning machine and tune to pitch.
6. After changing the desired
strings retune all the strings to the proper
pitch and tighter the top lock pressure pad screws.
