    Has anyone ever tried to put a D-Tuna on an edge floating trem? Curious to try this on an Ibanez.

    There are plenty of installation vids on YT that show installing a D-Tuna to a Floyd type bridge.
    But none for an Ibanez Edge.

    I did find this though, installed on a Ibanez with an Edge trem.
    The Tone Vise Pitch Shifter.
    But like the D-Tuna, the trem needs to be set up for 'Dive' only.

    I never seen the combo myself, so I doubt it will work. On a side note, you not only need to have the trem blocked for dive only but you would also need to raise the bridge high enough out of the rout to clear the D-Tuna from the body which just isn't an option on some guitars depending on specs/design.

    I have a D-Tuna I installed on a guitar and love it, it works fantastic but it's on a proper top mounted decked Floyd Rose. It's still very close to the surface of the guitar and I have to be careful not to push down to hard on it to keep from hitting the body. You kind of need to push down a little on it to push it in and pull out easier.

    The Tone Vise gizmo looks to be able to work without any re-routing or bridge raising.
    It barely protrudes any further than the standard string clamp screws.
