I feel a bit insulted when i read all the bashing of the EZ bridge.
Why, exactly? If you're insulted by everyone who has a difference of opinion, then stay away from forums.
I have been gigging the RG2550 professionally for about 4 months now and i find the bridge VERY COMFORTABLE, VERY EASY TO CHANGE STRINGS,
It's no easier to change strings with the EZ than any other trem, the only trem that could
make things easier is the EP for not having to cut away the balls ends.
VERY EASY TO SET UP, THE BAR STAYS WHERE I PUT IT,
The intonation is only thing that's "easier" to set up due to an intonation tool (something with can be purchased for the Edge/Lo-Pro, but to be honest, how often does one need to set the intonation?
Plus, the tool is held into the body of the tremolo itself...
I mean, come on, it looks like a wart
. Couldn't they just include it in the jiffy bag like every other tool? Nope, they were going for a "Non-Common Sense" route. I'd rather take no tool than have that thing
on my trem constantly.
The arm holder is the only improvement upon previous trems. I harvest these arms holders and put them on previous (superior) tremolos.
IT NEVER GO'S OUT OF TUNE and THE EXTRA RESISTANCE FROM THE ZERO BAR MAKES FOR MORE AGRESSIVE PLAYING (NICE!!!!).
The ZPS bar also makes for a flat return on pull up, ZERO flutter, and more agressive how?
Then i come on here and someone writes something as stupid as "Oh my! Ibanez, could you please ditch the Edge Zero and go back to Edge pro" followed by "I dont own a EZ but i looked at one in a shop".
Take it from me, Ibanez should ditch the Edge Zero and go back to the Edge Pro, Lo-Pro and Original Edge.
I think bashing the EZ is a way for bad guitarists to look like they have a bit of experience
I think someone has past thier bed time... (Y)
And I guess that means Rich has less experience than this prodigy!
