Hey guys/girls and attack heli's!

So i've just entered the realms of the Ibanez by getting my hands on a RGa 220Z, but i'm facing one problem. Since i'm new to the whole tremolo style guitars i spend some time figuring out how to set up my guitar, and i think i did a pretty good job. BUT when i use the trem and put more pressure on the strings (note getting higher) at a certain point the strings start to hit the 24th fret and the whole effect is gone.

So my question: can this be helped by just raising the action, or is there something else i'm missing? I'm asking thisjust to make sure before i'm just going to fool around ;D

Thanks in advance <3

F.Y.I. pic of the guitar (i know i can show pictures by the resolution was huge)

It could be an action issue. I'd first check to see that the neck is adjusted correctly. Then raise the action to try and fix this problem.

Hope this helps!
