I have a DGT that's need some work, but I don't trust anyone local. It needs the usual set up, but the main thing is the 6 trem screws. They HAVE been screwed down at some point, and I have turned them. Cant find any good info on the net. This is an awesome ax, and I wanna play it!

If you screw/unscrew them you should feel a little gap at some point,that's where you should leave them.
Check that the bridge stays horizontal and without any force applied from the screws and you should be done.

You can check that out too:

The screws have a knife edge on them so they have to be set at a certain height so the bridge rests in those notches. The bridge is designed to float. There is info on the PRS website in the resources section on how to adjust the height properly. It takes some fine tuning but can be done.

I'm pretty sure I read in the manual that the strings should be loosened considerably before adjusting the trem as the knife point is made of (soft) aluminum that can be burred easily.

That's John Ingram...THE john ingram..Paul's first apprentice and was instrumental in building up the company. Did a fabulous refret for me on an 86 once upon a time.
