Edge Zero 2 questions

OK, so I'm pretty much sold as hell on buying myself a premium. I'm in the UK so I know a couple places where I can get an RG827QMZ, but I've some questions.

1 - The EZ2 trem. I'm not worried about tuning stability, they seem rock solid. What I want to know is, even though they don't come with the intonation tool, will the intonation tool from a ZR function with them?

2 - The trem again - I like playing with 11 guage strings. Can the trem handle this? I've never set up my ZR (6 or 7 string) guitars with more than 10s. I don't mind keeping with that, but 11's would be great.

1. No, the back of the trem is not threaded for the tool.

2. If it will take the tension it will be right at the end of the spring range. If it won't you'll have to switch to EGEN springs, but they're for an S and are larger diameter. Might creat some setup complications, might not.

Re: Edge Zero 2 questions

Ah, thats a shame. Looks like I'm stuck on 10s then. I rarely if ever do my own intonation though, (I know how to do it, I try to do it, and then it never seems to work. Maybe my brain is wired weird...) so I guess point 1 is moot.

It's one of the few times I actually use a tool is the zr/ez, if you can't use the fine tuners intonation with a strobe is a real pain.

Re: Edge Zero 2 questions

If you run out of room to dial in the back, you can cut a winding or two off the springs to get the tension higher.
That way it will be able to counteract the tension from the 11s.

oof, wow, I can imagine. Still though...as nice as it is to be able to do it myself, I've never had any skill with getting it spot on, so I don't see the option of "give it to my local guy, who does it better than I can" as a big hurt in this situation.

Course, I'd be buying from you, but sadly I'm international and can't afford the VAT and Customs on top of your setup
