    Okay, just a bit of a weird question here. I got a S570B with a ZR trem and I've noticed lately that it's a bit squeaky when I use the bar. Just wondering if there was any way I can lubricate it myself I don't wanna spend any more on a new trem entirely if needed...

    Has anyone here installed/retro fitted a ZR trem on a guitar that wasn't built with one? I've researched the ZR trem and notices it's only on S series guitars :confused: I'd really like to get one on a xiphos or falchion but would that work? Do the Edge iii have too wide of a cavity? I've read...

    Here's a 2008 S520ex in really excellent condition. Bought it on a whim after I got messed on a '90 540S deal hoping it would feel close to the same. Too different for my taste. Anyway... Not really a scratch on the body anywhere. The ZR trem is in excellent condition, very minor finish...

Solutions - Manufacture a replacement holder, or buy a floyd rose arm and holder and replace it. My choice - I replaced it with an...
