    This thing is INCREDIBLE for adjusting intonation on an EDGE/Lo-Pro EDGE/Edge Pro trem. Literally anyone who has one of those needs to buy this tool. The second pic is me attempting to show how you use it on your saddle. The front peg goes in the saddle and the back claw wraps under the fine tuner.

    Do you ever adjust under full string tension, or do you loosen off the string before unlocking and moving the saddle? I've still been loosening everything off just to be safe lol

    I bought one last year and it's an invaluable tool for Ibanez Edge bridges. So glad that Ibanez brought these back to the market.

    I used the "The Key" tools that All Parts sell... until I got this one from Ibanez when it was launched into the market about 2 years ago (?)... such a difference...

    I do my intonations under FULL STRING TENSION with no problem whatsoever. If this tool is placed correctly there is no problem at all, saddles won't move with this thing in place.

    I loosen the the strings, the older tool doesn't look nearly as beefy as the one you have though.

    Rich has a picture of it here, it looks pretty lousy compared to the E-Jack

    I use the old Key under tension. It might not look as fancy, but it's plenty sturdy.

    As I said I have both and I've always used them under string tension. The older "The Key" is fine an does the job, but is much stiffer when turning the wheel/peg for intonation adjustments (because of small diameter in the peg, perhaps?). I never used it again.
