Hey all,


I want to use thicker gauge strings on my Ibanez Edge Zero ZPS3.


The stock springs are tight enough and I have been told there is a global shortage on the correct tremolo springs to install thicker strings (.012).


What do I buy? Do I wait (its been a full year since I was told about the shortage)?



Thanks

0.12 in standard tuning? I'd be very surprised if you manage to do that with the Ibanez Edge Zero ZPS3. Do you know what springs you are looking for?

I want to use .012 for my personal preference. When i installed them (to try it out) my tremolo stuck out of its place (not flush with the guitar body). Im stuck trying to figure out how to install thick gauge strings without my tremolo sticking out (in D# or E).

Thanks

as I said, I am not sure you will manage to do that with that bridge. I have guitars with the Edge, Lo Pro Edge, Edge Zero II and Edge Zero with the zps3 system. While I could add extra springs to the Edge, Lo Pro Edge and Edge Zero, I can't add springs to the edge zero with the zps3. And I don't think 2 springs will give you enough tension to use 12s.
