I've decided to sell this guitar, before I did that video, the last time I used it was in August, it's in great condition, but I barely (rarely) play 6 stringers.

Agreed, it would be nice though, if Ibanez used more ball-bearing based tremolos.

Let the witch hunt begin!

Wel, it's true, it's given me far less problems than any of the Edge tremolos I've had, I barely used the Lo Pro 7 on my K-7 because, it's not a ZR, still, not giving up the K-7.

Abusing Ibanez RG560 with Zero Resistance Tremolo.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSuqOYE-Mic

I've been asked many times how well the ZR tremolo I installed in my RG560 works, so I made this video to show how well it plays, sounds, works and takes abuse with slight/if any, re-tuning needed.

And yes, the ZR is way better than the Lo Pro/Original Edge tremolo (I've had/have them too)

Pickups are
Bareknuckle Nailbomb bridge.
Neck pickup from SG.

Signal chain was

Guitar - Presonus Firestudio Mobile - EZ Mix 2 - Garageband.
