Lo-Trs I

Hi, so I bought a new Lo-Trs I from Rich and Ibanez rules and based upon my experience that I have already had with this trem in the past, I think it would be a better idea to just sell it. My original plan was to try one last time on an S470SOL using this new bridge, but I've come to thought and I'm done. They just keep breaking. So, I was just wondering, how much would this thing go for? It's in a great condition, and it has never been installed. Keep in mind this is the entire system and not just the bridge. This trem has become pretty rare now, you can find used ones on ebay, but a new one is almost unheard of now days. Thanks.

If interested, I can post pictures.

I'm confused. Is the new one broken? If not, why not use it? I'm also wondering what you mean by "They just keep breaking".....what's breaking on yours?

The new one isn't broke, that's why I called it new and in great condition. The metal is just horrible, and after doing research, I am not the first person to have this problem. They just self destruct and I am not open for a discussion on this. If someone wants to get a better use out of it than I can, go for it. But this trem is a joke.

Re: Lo-Trs I

I'm surprised you're having issues with a LO-TRS, the LO-TRS II is rubbish, yes, but the Japanese made LO-TRS is a far better bridge made from tougher materials.
