I can definitely see Ibanez targeting the players who b!tch about what a pain in the a$$ a floyd unit is to re-string/ tune, etc.... That's not necessarily Jemsiter's who know how to set up a floyd while suspended upside down in a swimming pool while blindfolded territory. I've heard a lot of guys (not all, but mainly beginners) complain about floyds not being very user-friendly.

I think this speedloader design could be a step in the right direction and a very smart move by Ibanez. Time will tell what else this new unit has to offer. Also, I don't think they'll screw up the Edge's stability....That would be an incredibly dumb move.

Ah sh!t I double posted...Well, anyway what I was going to add was that it would be great if they also would make intonation easier!

Just the name that inspired me to think of a possible speculation. As for wilkinson? Just something about those saddle studs reminds me of them.

the speedloader WILL retrofit the OFR and most licensed ones. thats what it says on the speedloader site.

also, what is the edge 2? any pics? and what guitar(s) was it on?

Well, it looks like the Korean RG models are finally getting a proper Edge trem.

I know absolutely zero Russian, but from those diagrams, it looks like the main differences between the Edge I and the Edge II is that the Edge I has the hardened metal saddle inserts and an Edge bar, and the Edge II uses the SAT/FAT bar (screw-in?) and has solid 1-piece saddles.

Neat.

They look pretty similar in shape to the existing Edge and LoPro, but only the exact dimensions will tell the whole truth.

Wow... the back of the ZR trem looks rather complicated! It looks very much like a Kahler/Floyd hybrid.
