    Default Tremolo Stud Screws not Equal Distancxe from Nut HELP

    Hi.

    I have a guitar I bought, used, and it appears the Floyd rose studs are not equal distance from the nut.

    One is 1/16" closer to the nut than the other and I can't get the thing to intonate properly on the low E and A strings...

    Any suggestions?

    Here is a pic to show what I mean...(it's not this guitar though...just for pics sake)

    Thanks

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    Default Tremolo Stud Screws not Equal Distancxe from Nut HELP

    I believe they are supposed to be slightly offset
    But if you can't intonate then it must be to far
    The inserts the studs screw into would not be easy to move. I've never had a build with that issue so I can't help much. Good luck

    If getting a refund isn't an option, you need to do the following:

    -Remove the studs and inserts
    -Find dowel rods slightly larger than the old holes
    -Drill out the holes to the same size as the dowel rods
    -Insert the dowel rods into the holes, mark the depth and cut flat
    -Install the dowel rods into the holes with a good quality carpenters wood glue
    -Allow a couple days for the glue to set up
    -Sand and re-finish as required to match existing paint
    -Mark the proper location for the holes, double check distances to nut
    -Re-drill the holes in the proper location
    -Install inserts, studs and Floyd
    -Restring, and enjoy
