Opinions on the edge pro II trem?

Is this a huge improvement over the lo pro TRS?
overall is the edge pro II real good?

Re: Opinions on the edge pro II trem?

The quality of the EPII is totally up to debate. I can't say that I have extensive knowledge of that trem since I don't own a guitar that has one but when I tested one out in a store it seemed decent. It is DEFINITELY an improvement over the old Lo-TRS trems and the only Ibanez trem currently in production that would be superior to it would be the Edge Pro.

Definitely superior than the lo trs. But it still ain't very good. Even edge pro too. They seem to be inferior compared to their ancestor, the edge and lo pro IMO.

It's good bridge. Not that good like Lo-pro Edge, but still good. It stays in tune, and it's very comfortable for palm muting. I can't compare it with Lo-TRS, cause never played it.

Do things like the Hipshot Trem-Setter work for some of the lower quality trems?

I use to think the EP2 is ok. It stays in tune, but the action isn't as smooth, and it doesn't feel as buttery as the lo-pro and edge. I owned guitars with all 3, so I'll say the EP2 is inferior, but it does it's job.
