new trems???? new Edge and ZeroResistance???????

Compiled here is info thus far collected
http://www.jemsite.com/news/edge2003/


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I got this info from an Ibanez distributor. I don't remember reading anything about them here, which is weird. They claim these specs on the new edge

---cut and paste----
1. Arm snaps in&out arm. Same as Edge tremolo
2. Easy string installation by SLIDING HOLDER BLOCK
3. SOUND-METAL chip, inserted into saddles, for longer life of saddle.
4. New locking system ? No need to cut ball-end of strings
-----------------------------

they also claim that the new trem in the S series is called the zero rocker, and that all japanese ibanez guitars willl be prestige in the 2003 line.

this is a lot of info. If true, I'm shocked I didn't read it here!!!

Interesting. Usually the first news we get here comes from foreign distributors that get [and release] news a little earlier than we do.

Talk about a total redesign!

That edge doesn't look *too* whacky, I'm sure it will be just as stable as they ever were and probaby more, but that Zero Rocker sure looks interesting.

The new Edge looks very evolutionary. That Zero Rocker looks like a weird Edge/Kahler hybrid with bearings rather than a knife edge to pivot. Bizarre. Can't wait to see 'em!

All Japanese-made Ibanezes will be Prestiges? If that's true, i'm guessing a LOT more models will be made in Korea, which is probably not all that bad, if they start using the older Edge designs on Korean models.

I never met a non-knife edge design I liked as well as a floyd type. Maybe this'll be the first. The Edge looks like it nicked a feature or two from Yamaha's old RM-II trem.

Y'know in Formula One racing, when a great team switches engines and then dissappears from the podium for the next 5 years...

If it aint broke don't fix it

Well the new Edge has a cutaway view so I'm assuming it's still a knife edge design. The only advantage I can see from the new unit is that you don't have to cut the ball ends off which facilitates quicker string changes. I actually like being able to cut the ball ends off 'cause I can thread the broken string back into the saddle. That's not gonna happen with this new model. Then again, maybe the strings will be less likely to break at the bridge in the first place.
