Re: What's the best vibrato?
most of the people here are going to say the edge is the best (and rightfully so, as they are a VERY higher teir trem).
i've played both an OFR and an edge, and i would give the nod to the edge. the edge has some extra mass added to it, so you get a more "weighty" feel, if you get what i mean, i have an 18 year old one, and aside from some rust on the intonation screws (the first owner of this jem was pretty negligent) and it works just dandy.
After playing an edge, the OFR feels a bit weird. there just isnt that much metal in it, so it feels a little flimsy in my opinion, i could be completely off, but it sure seems like it. the one great thing about the floyd is that the arm is attatched with a nut, so you can adjust tension on the arm on the fly, whereas the edge's arm can either be limp, or sticky, but you cant switch between the two.
that said, i must say i prefer the edge. even though theres no nut holding it in, theres a clip system at the bottom of the arm that locks it in really well, and i feel a lot more comfortable getting violent on that vs. the OFR. the orgiginal edge is IMO the best lisenced FR trem out there, just wish ibanez kept it out longer.
