    2010 S5470 Prestige MIJ in Translucent Black Sunburst (TKS), with the titanium reinforced neck, ZR2 bridge, Hot Grinder 1 & 2 and Short Tracer 2 pickups, original Prestige HSC. Some honest wear on the body under the control plate. What would you say is fair, honest market value? Considering...

    I know the sustain issue on S5470's has been around on this site and the Ibanez forum pretty much since the guitar came out. Many people have suggested dozens of different fixes (some silly, some not so). My post-2009 (when they introduced a new middle pickup) S5470 doesn't sustain well...

    So, I was looking through the Ibanez website today and none of the S models seem to have a ZR trem anymore. Is Ibanez abandoning this trem? I kinda liked it.

    I am recently planning to swap out the zr2 bridge from my newly bought ibanez s5470 with edge zero (NOT edge zero 2). May I ask if any modification to the guitar body need to be made in order to fit in the new tremolo? Also, do the height adjustment posts of edge zero have the same threads as...

    hi there, looking to install a edge zero 2 tremolo on my ibanez jem and remove the lo trs edge system. Only thing i'm worried about is whether or not it will fit. Any help would be appreciated and have any of you tried this yet? Thanks guys.

    Has anyone discovered the source of zr2 trem buzz? I can't seem to determine whether or not it's the saddles, the hinges, or loose screws inside, but my guitar is brand new so I'm trying not to dissect it until I pursue warranty action. I've ruled out springs and the intonation screw. The worst...
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I still have some experimentation to do but I'm in the process of making a sustain block for the ZRII and my S5470. I bought a "parts" ZRII trem that's missing a few parts so I could mock things up. I may end up purchasing a beat up ZR-capable S body that'll help with figuring out clearance...

    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...

    Hi! I'm new to this forum. I'm considering buying a new S570 w/ZR tremolo or S5470 Prestige w/ZR2 tremolo. I've been reading a lot of posts citing sustain issues with these guitars where the higher notes die off in a couple of seconds. So far I've not found a consensus as to the culprit...

    I bought an Ibanez S5470 Prestige a few months ago. It was strung with .09s, but I play in D standard so I put on some .10s. I have not been able to get the bridge to stay in tune perfectly since. It stayed in tune really well before I restrung it. It is doing some really strange stuff, if I...

    I finally got around to trying my S5470 without the stop bar today and am sad to say it plays better. I say I'm sad about this because that stop bar is actually really convenient. It makes it easy to tune and I can go back and forth to dropped D really easily. But the trem action is way...
