Kinda NGD

Just thought I'd share this to save someone some aggravation.
I got a new Ibanez RG350MPWH awhile back and it's a really nice guitar but I just was not happy with how it played. I played it here and there and just wasn't happy. It felt really stiff when bending and lifeless. I was going to sell it but ran across a video on the tube talking about the ZPS3 Zero Point spring tremolo system. I thought maybe taking it off would help so I gave it a try and the guitar plays more like I remember my JS1000 playing. It is just a night and day difference. Anyway it's like a NGD for me now and I'll start enjoying the guitar now. I don't know why It took me so long to look into that ZPS3 trem info.

Nice! Isn't it great when a simple change makes a huge difference?

I've never tried the new Ibanez Zero-Point System, but I'd imagine it could be handy if one wanted more trem stability.

It sure is.. 5min fix including spring adjustment too.

I guess if you break a string with the zps in there it will stop the trem at the zero point position so your still in tune with a broken string. I see the benefits but it just didn't feel right to me at all. I'm going to bring the Ibanez to band practice tomorrow and get some good playing in. I may try to get some video just for fun.

Thanks GUITARMAGEDDON...
I was so disappointed I didn't like how it played but couldn't bring myself to return it. GOOD THING.... Think I'm back in business now..
The thing is I always told myself if they ever made a white RG with Maple neck that I could afford I'd get it. Then They released these.
