Post PGM100 Trem Trouble!
Yo!
Paul here, new to the forum! Got a PGM100 here. It's an original '91 and I use it all the time. The trouble is, the trem has developed a crack vertically over and below the knife edge. I presume a repair is beyond question and was wondering what trem would be suitable for a replacement. Also would be interested in knowing what tremol-no system will work with this new trem.
Thanks a bunch!
Oh, and I intend to use this guitar until it no longer functions so it does not bother me how banged up and unoriginal the guitar is once I have a functioning trem (much to the dismay of collectors the world over).

I'm not sure if the cavities are the same (I know some are smaller or bigger). Check out projectguitar or ask Rich from Ibanez rules (or better yet, Ibanez?).

I think the tremol-no works for all guitars, just depends on which one you'll use. Check here: http://www.tremol-no.com/workswith.asp

By "using it till it dies" do you mean you're planning on keeping it and not reselling it ever? Because if that's the case why not put in a block of painted wood and install a fixed bridge. That's what Paul did to his guitars anyway. This idea is suicidal, please don't listen to me

Nope, guitar is useless now might as well just give it to me. :roll:



You could just get a replacement edge..... not sure if other edge varients will fit without mods. Or even have the bridge cavity filled and turn it into a hardtail like Gilbert's.
