Re: Best Edge Tremolo

I love the original edge, runner up is the lo pro. There both the only trems i and im sure many other jemsters will use. I just love how simple they are and reliable when it comes to staying in tune.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

i'm stuck between original edge and edge zero. i havent really fully tested the zero yet but i really like the intonation tool feature and the (removable) ZPS to go between better tuning stability and more flutter like the original edge.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

i love the lo-pro. performs just as well as the original edge with locking studs. only difference is that its more comfortable.

but really, if everyone prefers original edge's, why will no one trade me a nice lo-pro for my almost mint condition original edge?!?!?!

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

I really have never found the original edge to be intrusive on my playing. I dont know why, but I really favor the original over any other trem system ever made. :-/

:d steve vai likes the OE as well

Lo-pro or OE. I'm fine with either.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

my fave one is the original Edge, but being this a "Best" tremolo poll, i had to vote for the ZR-2, because it's actually the best of all the Ibanez family.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

I think the ZR is a bloody awesome trem, but I've never actually owned a guitar with it in it so I didn't vote for it.

It's a huge toss up between OE and LPE for me. I don't find the Whale Tail has any effect on my playing whatsoever and find the action slightly smoother so I voted OE.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

I've heard both the edge and edge pro were really great trems. I've never tried the original but the pro was awesome when I did get to play with one. The flutter on it was amazing and it lasted for a while.

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

Hey, the Edge Zero's are nothing to sneeze at either, in my experience. If I can't get guitar with a OE or LP, I would be very happy with a EZII or EZ!

Re: Best Edge Tremolo

Edge Pro by a hair over Original Edge.
The insanely popular Lo Pro Edge needs a slot on this poll. Lo Pro would be my pick for #3 but it would probably win this poll; that or Original Edge.
