    Check out ibanez rules tech section the parts about the locking posts and EDGE specific features wont be relevent but the rest is on the ball...

    I just realsied how little pullup I now get from my no1 due to adding a big brass block compared to my RG, funny I dont think it affected my OFR in my Jackson but has seemed to blocked the Schaller FR's range....

    You may need to shim/angle the neck or possibly the route is too shallow....but that will only help with the frets choking out when pulling up not the trem hitting the route..

    Perhaps they intended all of the bridges to be lo profiles, so the original whale tail style locking screws would interfere with the travel.

    Thats the only thing I can think of that would physically stop the bridge pulling up any more...

    Im sure you'll figure it out...

      Incidentally, Rich @ Ibanezrules' articles on double-locking, floating tremolos was how I originally learned to set-up a Floyd-style bridge. Invaluable reading. I'll go over it again and see if there's anything I can do. I wonder if shimming both the neck and the bridge will give the tail end enough clearance from the rout without affecting the action too much. As it is, there's practically zero travel on pull up, but I never max out pushing down on the bar, as far as the tremolo block is concerned. It never hits the claw spring assembly routing (the only thing that stops me from pushing down more is the trem arm physically contacts the body :lol).

      The good side to all this is the bridge returns to a zero position pretty reliably. Not bad for an LFR that's likely at least six years old.
