    EBMM Luke II Trem Setup - Trem post height

    Hi guys,

    Picked up a used Luke II. Trem height has been messed with at the posts as they're uneven.. what's the stock setting?

    Is that the standard vintage EBMM tremolo? The bridge posts should be screwed all the way in, as far as I know. They are not really meant to be adjusted. Action adjustment should be made using the saddles and neck angle.

    Yeah exactly - the vintage tremolo.

    The treble side was higher than the bass side - the bass side was all the way down, but I feel like that can restrict the movement and 'bounciness' somewhat? My Suhrs all have the trems sitting off the body slightly.

    Just wondering what the stock setup is for the Luke!

    Similar. Adjust the posts so the trem is parallel to and just off the guitar top.

    What I was always told is that the trem posts should be adjusted just high enough for a business card to slide under the bridge plate to allow room for the the trem to work. Its a small gap.
