This guy has a couple of videos.

If you are just tuning though - Unlock the headstock (nut). Tune it regularly, lock it back up, and fine tune with the bridge.

How to tune the ZR Tremolo?

Hey guys,

I'm a total newbie to Ibanez's and I need help! I have a strat but just bought my first Ibanez 4 hours ago - an s570b :-D

So in all my hunting for how on earth I start getting my head around a ZR Tremolo, I can't find the one basic thing I need - not how to do a setup, but just how to tune my guitar! Please help!!

Forgive me for what seems like a very obvious question but every search I've tried has led me to advice on setting up and not how to tune it! But I'd like to get to grips with the basic tuning and play the guitar with its old strings for a week or two before I attempt the setup. As a newbie to any form of floating tremolo, some pics or very simple advice would be lovely! Thank you!!
