Attaching the tremolo arm
1.The tremolo arm employs a snap-in design.
Holding the corner of the tremolo arm, press it firmly into the
arm socket of the base plate until it clicks into place.
2.The tightness of the tremolo arm can be adjusted by the
torque adjustment cap. Turning the cap clockwise will
make the arm tighter, and turning it counterclockwise will
make the arm looser.

Adjusting the tremolo attachment angle
The angle at which the tremolo is attached is adjusted by the
balance between the tension of the strings and the tension of the
tremolo springs installed in the back of the guitar body.
The tremolo will perform optimally when adjusted so that it is
approximately parallel with the surface of the guitar body.
1.With the guitar tuned correctly, check the angle of the tremolo.
2.If the tremolo is tilted forward, turn the spring adjustment
knob located on the back of the body toward the “plus”
direction to tighten the tremolo springs.
3.If the tremolo is tilted toward the rear, turn the spring
adjustment knob toward the “minus” direction to loosen
the tremolo springs.
※ Because the balance of tension between the strings and the springs
will change each time you adjust the tension of the tremolo springs,
adjusting the tremolo angle in the floating state will affect the tuning.
You’ll need to tune the guitar repeatedly while performing this
adjustment.
Arm-up stopper
The SynchroniZR has an arm-up stopper feature. This feature disables the floating state by locking the
arm-up range of movement.
1.Make sure that the tremolo is adjusted so that it is approximately parallel with the surface of
the guitar body.
2.Remove the tremolo spring cover, and turn the arm-
up stopper knob so that the tip of the arm-up stopper
contacts the tremolo block.
3.Once again make sure that that the tremolo is
approximately parallel with the surface of the guitar body,
and turn the spring adjustment knob several times in the
“plus” direction.
※ If the tremolo spring tension is too weak, the tremolo block will be
pulled by the strings, possibly causing the tuning to be unstable.
If you experience this problem while tuning, turn the spring adjustment knob even farther in the “plus” direction.
String height adjustment
To adjust the string height, adjust the height of the entire tremolo
unit by using an HEX key wrench (3 mm) to turn the stud bolts
located at the left and right of the tremolo unit. (It is not possible
to individually adjust the height of each string.)

Intonation adjustment
1.Remove the intonation adjustment bolts stored in the tremolo
unit, and screw them into the adjustment holes at the rear of
the saddle until the bolt tips touch the wall of the tremolo unit.
2.Use an HEX key wrench (2 mm) to loosen the saddle lock bolt,
and turn the intonation adjustment bolt to adjust the saddle
position.
※ Before checking the intonation, firmly tighten the saddle lock bolts and
tune the guitar correctly. When you’ve finished making adjustments,
tighten the saddle lock bolts and the pressure pad bolts of the locking
nut, and store the intonation adjustment bolts inside the tremolo unit.
String replacement
Install new strings by passing them through the tremolo block from the
back side of the guitar body.
