Talking Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

I have little to contribute, since I sold my customized RG220 a while ago, and since I have only briefly played the new Edge Pro. The Edge Pro is the best because of materials and because of how it feels like when you palm mute...

Actually... the only reason I contributed was to say



VIVA CHILE MIERDA!!

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

right now i like my edge pro better, cuz my old edge is getting wore out I think, it's getting fairly loose, the pro is tighter and feels better.

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

They're all on the same sheet of paper for me. I like the newer ones a little better than the Edge but the old Edge is still good!

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

I personally think the Lo-Pro Edge is the best Ibanez trem (closely followed by the original Edge).

I've owned one guitar with the new Edge-Pro and compared to the Lo-Pro Edge on my RG2027 it was awful.

The Lo-Pro will take some serious abuse and still return to pitch perfectly 99% of the time.
One good dive on the Edge-Pro and it was out of tune. I sold the guitar with the Edge-Pro.

I also think the Edge-Pro is an ugly piece of sh*t compared to the Lo-Pro.

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

i think it also widely depends on people's luck and the individual guitars and trems. Some might get a great unit and some might get one not so great. People are probably going to have a sour experience with one or the other and not like it from then on. With that said both my edge and edge pro take tons of abuse and return great. The pro feels tighter and better right now though.

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

Original Edge, then Lo Pro, but the original with its big tail feels right, like a floyd is supposed to feel...

Theres a reason Joe and Steve have original Edges on their main axes (tho Steve also uses the Lo Pro in Flo and the Horsie)...

Re: Edge V/s Lo-pro Edge V/s Edge Pro

The Lo-Pro is the best middle ground. The original Edge is an amazing bridge, been using it for 2 decades and been happy 99% of the time, but I always wanted a Lo-Pro, the design is better but it retains the Edge feel. Never tried the Edge Pro, but if I did own one I'd do the locking stud mod. I'm sure all 3 bridges are great. My choice, though... Lo-Pro. It's got everything the others have got. Plus it looks sleek and mean!

When it comes to the Ibanez Edge I always liked the lo pro the best.

Original Edge all the way. Started using Ibanez in 1986 and have been hooked on that bridge ever since.
