zr trem questions

iv'e just ordered an s470 (which hopefully will arrive tomorrow) after playing one in a shop last week. Though im getting a little concerned regarding trem breakages after reading a few posts on this site. Just wondered if anyone has some advice to avoid breakages or improve playability. Also what are your thoughts on the ZR

thanks all

Re: zr trem questions

well the guitar has arrived and i must say im very impressed, this is my first ibanez and the factory set up is spot on, ive owned a couple of low-mid priced guitars before and 1st impressions are very good even next to my les paul which i never thought anything would come close to. As for the trem it seems very solid so i'll just wait and see

Re: zr trem questions

I've had my s470 for over a year and a half and i slap the bar for flutter, hit it for quick dive bombs and **** at it all for fun and so far nothing has broken for me. I play it free floating, so maybe the backstop has something to do with breaking bars more cause its adding more stress IMO.
