Old dog, new tricks - which Ibanez for me?

It's been a while since I have actually thought about buying a new guitar, and I am really hooked on the look and feel of some new Ibanez guitars. I am extremely familiar with everything Ibanez pre 1,000,000 Edge tremolo variations and 2,000,000 manufacturing locations.

In the "olde days" it was a simple choice - a Japanese made Ibanez with an Edge or Lo-Pro Edge trem made decisions easy. Now it seems it's not that easy.

So, can someone give me the "Cliff Notes version" update on the quality of Ibanez guitars & hardware?

A format such as this would be great:

1-10 scale (ten being best)

Edge Trem = 8.5
Lo-Pro Edge Trem = 9.5
ZR Trem = 10
TRS = 4
Ibanez Japan = 8
Ibanez Korea = 3
