Smile My new Ibanez Premium RG950QM

just picked up this guitar and I have to say i'm verrrry impressed! guitar came tuned down a whole step. within a minute or two i was able to get it in standard and staying in tune. I then proceeded to pull out every whammy bar trick i knew to test out the edge zero 2 tremolo and wow! this guy will not go out of [email protected]!! all floyd rose bridges ive ever played on wouldve taken me 10 minutes atleast just to get it to stay in tune after being down a full step and would not be able to stay in tune 10 percent of what this puppy does after whammy bar abuse. those who are dissing the edge zero trem must be really old school and stuck in your ways because this is the trem we have been dreaming of. Ibanez got this one right. All this being said I'm not a fan of the bridge pickup and will be swapping it out with a dimarzio evolution really soon. Hope this is useful to all of you. If you are interested in the new tremolos I highly suggest you do what I did and go to ur local guitar shop and plug the guitar into an amp with a built in tuner and abuse the guitar and check the tuning back and forth. This is what sold me.

Nice! I had a bad experience with my first floyd and I swore off floating tremolo's. Maybe I should look at a guitar with this tremolo. Hopefully yours isn't just a fluke.

Re: My new Ibanez Premium RG950QM

I had one of these a few months back and while it looked very nice, I was not all that impressed with the fretwork on it. The rounded edges are nice but I found the neck moved an awful lot compared to my other Ibbys and they did a horrible job of levelling the frets. I changed out the pickups and it sounded much better. The bridge worked just fine on it. I'm kind of turned off of any of the Premium stuff after the Premium Green Dot nightmare that I received and had to send back. To replace the Green Dot, Ibanez offered me something from their stock at the distributor and I got a very deep discount a brand new Prestige 2627ZE. It wasn't hard to see why one would be paying much more for this guitar. Far and away a much more well-built instrument with a good setup and nice attention to detail.
