i agree. i hate zr's... they dont flutter very well, and when your used to a edge or a floyd, they are hard to use. its like switching from .09 gauge to .13 gauge. they are way stiffer. YUK!

Re: Zr Tremolo

honestly my s470dx stays in tune really well, i can pretty much leave it without adjusting for a week and still be confident that it is in tune (with newish strings) and when it does go out its only by a fraction on the tuner and its consistently the same with each string so theres no guessing, and when its out, they generally go out of tune together so i can play alone winth no problem. i think its a great trem.

Ball bearing tremolos like the ZR are "supposed" to stay better in tune than the standard knife edge trems. The main advantage of the ball bearing trems is that they don't wear down .

Re: Zr Tremolo

I've never had a go at a ZR, but by design alone it's a good concept. Ibanez should look into redesigning the ZR to rival the Edge, or even someday replacing it. If not the current ZR someday in the future another zero resistance trem will hold it's own against an original Edge....wishful thinking mostly

Re: Zr Tremolo

Except for the damn collar stripping, and the arm-holder actually shearing clean in two(!) it's quite a good trem....not as good as the Lo-Pro Edge imo tho.

I think you need to do some routing because the ZR trem is a ball bearing tremolo and the TRS is a standard knife-edge trem

Yes and ball-bearing at the same time. I would consider Vigier but don't make lefties of their Excalibur .
