Trem question about new jcustom - Edge Zero vs ZR

So i've been looking into getting a new j custom RG8527Z, but i have a question.

I love the trem on my Ibanez S prestige, which is the ZR, but i really don't like floyds. I rest my hand on the bridge while picking, and have a tendency to bend the strings out of tune on floyds.

The j custom has the Edge zero trem, and while im sure its a nice trem, I'm concerned that because its construction in similar to a floyd (knife edges) i would have the same issues i have with floyds.

Anyone have any experience with the edge zero? would it be possible to put a zr on the jcustom? (though im sure the community won't like that idea)

or better yet, anyone in the boston area have a jcustom with an edge zero i could try out?

I use the Edge Zero with the ZPS system and I like it a lot. I've had a couple guitars with the ZR, too. There is a GC in natick that should have a prestige with the EZ bridge. Matt's in Weymouth should have one, too.

Re: Trem question about new jcustom - Edge Zero vs ZR

Same here - I was never a huge fan of floyd systems either but years ago when the ZR trem came out I bought a S series guitar with the ZR trem and I really liked it. But later I decided that I wanted to upgrade to a prestige RG so I traded the S guitar in on a RG2550z, which has the Edge Zero and I haven't looked back - I really like the Edge Zero bridge.

Both bridges employ a zero point return system so I'm willing to bet you wouldn't even notice a difference...I didn't really notice much of a difference in playability between the ZR and EZ...in fact I would say I like the EZ better - it seems to stay in tune better. I would go for it - I bet you won;t be disappointed.

I have 3 J Customs with the Edge zero. I have had zero problems with them. It is an excellent trem.
