edge pro II tremolo
I have a chance to buy a newer rg series guitar because i have decided that I want to have at least one guitar with a working trem(my 2 other ibanez have blocked trems). The guy who is selling it got it to learn on and then, all most as soon as he got it, he decided he didn't want to learn to play. Now its up for sale. This guitar has the "new" edge pro II trem in it and I have read in a few places that it is far superior to the lo-trs trems ibanez was using up until recently. Do you guys have any experience with this trem design. I hate the lo-trs and i hope what i have heard about the edge pro II is true. The lo-trs is a piece of crap as far as I am concerned. I know the new pro II will never measure up to the trems on the Jems of yesteryear,or a new Jem for that matter, but i could never afford one anyway. Any help you can give me would be most appreciated. Thanks again, guys!
p.s. I have played the guitar and it seems to play very well, good sound)I'm still gonna upgrade the pick-ups), and the neck plays like greased lightening. I just want to make sure the trem will hold its pitch and not have any of the other inherent short-comings the lo-trs trem.
