    Hey guys! I'm a product design student from Manchester, Uk, an avid guitarist, luthier and designer. Im just wanting to hear your "complaints" or downfalls of all the double locking trems out there please? It can be anything, but please try to be clear, state the problems and if...

    So since the original edge and lo-pro ibanez has stopped putting locking studs in our bridges. it is said to cut cost, although i doubt there is a large price difference. So if they want to put non locking studs on any non-prestige gear fine. most non-prestige gear needs a pick-up upgrade anyway...

    This is also for the JS model. if they are going to put the edge trem on the 20th and black dog series. then why cant they just put them on all of them? same goes for the JEMs. why not just put all of them as Lo pro standard? its all that Vai uses. IMO, the edge and lo pro get better...

    Hiya, I just bought an Ibanez RG1520GK, but the seller didn't have the trem, so I ordered the standard (Ibanez) replacement. My problem is, if I push the trem arm fully into the trem arm hole, then I can't move the trem out of the way because the guitar's volume knob gets in the way. I...

    Looks like Ibanez will make a limited batch of RG770s and I've seen some talk about Ibanez re-issuing RG565s. I hope this is true! An rg565 with AANJ and white color w. matching headstock would sell like mofo, me thinks. Check this UK musicshop's website...

    Hello All, Ive got a few questions really that may require plain advice or just opinion... Ive got a Lefty 2003(-ish) RG1570, pure black with cosmo Edge Pro etc. 1. So far, its been great but lately its kind of going out of tune every 5 minutes. I don't use the bar, so I suspected a few others...

    SyncroniZR ZR II Edge-Zero (!!!) Look like they're all screw-in arms, and I guess the Edge Pro is being completely dropped. Obviously we'll have to play them for final judgement, but any preliminary impressions? I'd like to know the exact details on the SyncroniZR and Edge Zero, it's...

    My JS1000 arrived from Italy today, I got it really cheap and it's in mint condition. However, upon closer inspection I got a huge lump in my throat cause this is supposedly a 2004 model with an Edge Pro bridge, but it has a screw in tremelo. Has the bridge been replaced with a TRSII? Picture :

    So i just bought a new jem brmr and while im really quite happy with it i think that the edge pro trem thats in it just isnt for me, ive played on older edge trems and had been very happy with them, so i looked through the trem section on the site and didnt see anything about the edge pros, but...

    Just wondering, between the winter NAMM show, the Ibanez website updates, and catalog printing, when is the soonest we can expect to see the new changes to model line up and colors, etc. for 2008? In other words, if I am on the fence about buying a new SZ520QM, how long is it worth waiting...

    I have an Ibanez RG350DX and I was wondering if an Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro would be a direct fit for my Edge III route (without any mods). Has anyone ever done this swap? Thanks

    Right, so I am getting sick of the unstable bridges on my Korean RG's and have finally decided it's time to get something a little more high-endy. To fund it, I am thinking about selling my frankenstein of a RR. It has the body of a Jackson RX10D (not sure what wood.. it's either alder or...
