Unhappy need an arm for the ZR trem!!

i just got a new S470 yesterday, but due to some shipping mistake i don't have the arm to the ZR trem. (this is kind of a problem because they don't sell Ibanez guitars in Estonia (where i live (europe)) i can probably get the trem arm from the same place i ordered the guitar from but this will take a couple of weeks.

so my question is.. can i buy or order the ZR trem arm by itself? or can i replace the arm with some other them arm that i can buy by itself?..

since this is my first guitar that has a tremelo system i am very new to all of this and don't really have a clue about the different trem arms.

the ZR trem was the main reason i bought the S470 in the first place and now when i don't have the arm for it.. it is pretty frustrating..

soo.. little help?

Re: need an arm for the ZR trem!!

I got my S470DX used and it didn't come with an arm. But with a quick experiment, I discovered that the arm from my old Yamaha Pacifica fit it perfectly. So I would say that your best bet (if you don't want to wait weeks or even months just to get one little piece) is to cruise some music stores with your guitar and see if they have any extra tremolo arms (which almost all do) that they might sell to you. I would imagine that you could get one pretty cheap in this fashion.
