This Ibanez Prestige was brought into the work for a restoration, as it had not been used for quite awhile.
This was due to tuning issues, especially when using the tremolo and the pickups suffered from a faulty/ intermittent signal.
Both these issues needed to be sorted, along with a detail clean, before the guitar could once again be used for gigging.
The tuning issues were being caused by the tremolo springs catching on the back plate of the guitar. This stopped the tremolo returning back to it's zero position after use.
As it turned out, the screws holding the springs into the guitar had been replaced at some point. The new screws had been over tightened, forcing the springs upwards more than originally intended. Replacing them with original replacements wasn't possible.
The solution was to enlarge the back plate, allowing the springs to move freely, enabling the tremolo to work correctly
