How to Replace Zero Fret?

Did you try gently tapping it out from the side? Screwdriver on fret tang, gently hammer on screwdriver?

<p>My 15 year old Expert needs a new pot. Every time I am standing and playing and push it down a little (towards the floor) it cuts out. The shaft is wobbly.</p> <p> </p> <p>What is the factory standard pot and value, please? Or if not, what is the best brand to replace with? Dimarzio?</p> <p>...

Wobbly Trem Arm

I bet a new arm would help too. See if you can source one. They can wear a tad plus not all are made equal.

Wobbly Trem Arm

<r><p>The sort of inbuilt trem collar system that the arm has on Vigier, is very common in the guitar world. Floyd rose arms have them too. I wondered if you have tightened the socket from the underside of the unit. ON your video, it is around the 1,22 mark you can see him with the allen key in sock...

Silly question but have you tried tightening that trem housing using the Allen key socket on the bottom? (Little black socket?)

Did you try insulating the jack from shielding paint too? Maybe it is how the jack is made. I.e. it is shorting out inside itself?
