Nope, the zr posts are farther apart, you'll need to mod it quite a bit.

I really don't like the action of the ball bearing; i like the pivot and I think ZR bridge is made by a bad quality metal

both are great, and the material quality depends on the model.

Re: ZR to EDGE swap?

To be honest, the only bad thing about the ZR is the arm. Not the V1 screw in arm, but the V1.1 arm on the new ones.

a) The torsion cap never stays put, are will get loose as you play
b) the plastic bushing slot is too high, when you abuse the arm, you can actually bend the arm out of shape.

however, the trem itself is indestructible.
