ATTACHING THE TREMOLO ARM

The tremolo arm is a screw-in type. After inserting the tremolo arm into the arm socket, rotate it to fasten it in place.

ADJUSTING THE ACTION

String height is controlled by raising or lowering the small HEX key screws using a wrench on either side of the saddle.

ADJUSTING THE INTONATION

The intonation can be adjusted by adjusting the saddle forward or backward using a Cross slot(+) head screwdriver or HEX key wrench (1.5 mm) on the intonation adjustment screw at the rear of the bridge.

REPLACING THE STRINGS

To replace strings, thread the new strings through the string holes located on the back of the guitar. The strings are then threaded through the tremolo block and up and over the saddle.

ADJUSTING THE TREMOLO ATTACHMENT ANGLE

The tremolo attachment angle is adjusted by changing the balance between the string tension and the tension of You’ll obtain the optimal performance by adjusting this so that the tremolo is approximately horizontal to the surface of the guitar body.

① With the guitar tuned correctly, check the angle of the tremolo.

② If the tremolo is tilted toward the front, insert a Cross slot screwdriver through the slit in the tremolo spring cover on the back of the body, and tighten the screw to increase the tension of the tremolo springs.

③ If the tremolo is tilted toward the rear, loosen the screw to decrease the tension of the tremolo springs.

※ The tremolo angle adjustment will aff ect the tuning, because the balance of tension between the strings and the springs will change each time you adjust the tension of the tremolo springs. You’ll need to tune repeatedly while making this adjustment.

• TREMOLO SPRINGS

When the guitar is shipped from the factory, it is set up with three tremolo springs installed in parallel.

If the balance of tension between the strings and the tremolo springs has changed signifi cantly, such as when you’ve switched string gauges or are using a dropped tuning, you may need to change the number of tremolo springs or change the way in which they are installed.

① If you want to increase the tension, install the outer two tremolo springs diagonally.

② If you want to decrease the tension, remove the center tremolo spring.

※ Loosen the strings suffi ciently before you install or remove tremolo springs.
