Well I've not found one on Jemsite, or really anywhere else for that matter. Iíd like to offer mine. The difficulty here is the search function character limit that cuts out "ZR" from searches, thus I have included "ZRTremolo" in the title in hopes that those persistent enough will search for that, and find this
Btw: ZRTremolo, Zero Resistance, Zero Point, ZRBridge. Lol did I get em all?
Anyhow heres the deal. My S470DXQM is my first Ibanez, and my first fully floating tremolo (backstops aside). Iíve used many, but this is the first Iíve owned and setup. Today I did a string change on it for the first time, and would like to share it for the benefit of others. True, this isn't a full setup as it does not include intonation and truss rod, etc. But hey, intonation adjustments are a given on the ZR, I mean literally, it comes w/ an intonation tool!
Anyhow, this setup focuses on the nuances of string changing on the ZR, and includes removing an old set of strings, a brief yet thorough cleanup, and well, restringing. It is geared towards floyd beginners (like myself), and well, anyone interested in the ZR, as well as anyone who likes guitar pics, I hope it's well received!
Alright, so today we're taking Mr.S470, and removing the old 9s...
...and putting on some toneful 10s!
Alright first step, finding something with which to block the trem. This can be mildly difficult with the ZR, as the space you have on the underside of the trem before the fine tuners come down is quite small. Also, the overall amount of space under the rear of the trem is smaller than that of Edge/LoPro, in other words, you can't very well fit a bottle cap under there. I picked around, tried a few things, and ended up with a AAA battery, which looked to be about right. Down the whammy bar and in it goes.
To test it, just do a whammy pull-up see where the trem stops. Once thatís sorted out, your ready to begin. Go ahead and unlock the locking nut, making sure to recite "righty tighty lefty lucy" before doing so as to avoid doing something stupid (guilty). Start winding down strings, and as the trem falls, your trem block will get the real test.
^ could that have worked out any better? I think not, AAAs ftw!
