They're made in Korea, but I could also be wrong. But the quality is great. It's probably the best bridge I've played so far and I like it much better then Edge pro or Floyd rose original.

Re: zr bridge in indonesiana nd korean guitars where is it made?

lol how funny I am going to do the same thing on my next build. I am hoping to get some actually a few prints laid out so I have all the proper measurments. I am either going to mod it by hand or slap it on a vertical mill or a 6 axis and let er ripp.

Re: zr bridge in indonesiana nd korean guitars where is it made?

Better then the Edge Pro?? or the Edge?? I have to get me one then for sure. when I first heard the concept I thought (from a drawing concept) It all added up to be a far superior trem in every possible aspect. I have heard issues people have with them. We people are funny, A item can actually be the exact same, function exactly the same, but we in our heads believe its inferior, and all of a sudden somehow the item transforns into crap. It wont keep tune, it is to spongy or stiff etc..
I thought i'd point that but of humanity out to everyone.

Re: zr bridge in indonesiana nd korean guitars where is it made?

Hi there,

for me it is simply the best double locking system I played in the last 20 years, so I don't care at all, where it is built.

I ripped out the two extra springs though for having it floating.

Have fun,
Vince

Re: zr bridge in indonesiana nd korean guitars where is it made?

I am quite impressed with it the ZR bridge in mine. From what everyone talks here, I had expected the ZR to have some trouble to keep tuning after a lot of crazy whammy bar action, but it is rock solid. I sometimes get the guitar to jam for a while and after 2/3 hours of jamming it is still in perfect tune. I also use it in full floating mode.

In fact, I expected a lot more grief for an Indonesian built guitar. Have not complaints as far as build quality goes. Only trouble, as I have mentioned before, are the pickups.

I also love the fact that if I have to adjust the spring tension, I only have to turn a knob instead of opening the cavity, getting a screwdriver and adjusting the screws to do it

Re: zr bridge in indonesiana nd korean guitars where is it made?

Hi,

I find that it doesn't have as much range as a knife edge trem going from full depressed to full pull up, but damn is it smooth!!! I set mine fully floating, I find it a little 'different' to do the thing where you repeatedly tap the bar (sorry I can't explain that better)

Mine seriously stays in tune so good it's better than most fixed bridge guitars!!! (that's with heavy gigging and jumping around stage antics)

I wish I had one on my RG or the very least the thumb/spring thing on the back, that things' a god send!
