Ok, well after I got my sabre back from the guitar shop where they fixed the arm wobble, i noticed that when the guy had set up my zr again, on the g string the notes dont seem to "take off" I think it is due to the action being a fraction too low. The sustain on most of the frets on that string is really pathetic. So what i want to know is what i have to do step by step instructions about how to fix this problem. Will I need to re intonate, And how do i do that?
Peace Out

I'm not familiar with the ZR's but looks like the string hasn't been properly installed.
If no other advices about this, try to replace it and, if the problem persist, wait for new comments. There's a lot of people here who can give you better advices than me.
Note: I'm just a player, not a technician but I have had similar (not same) problem in the past ;)

Im sure the string is too low because it whirres around and buzzes like you would not believe, i just want to highten the action because its pretty damn low now anyway and buzzes quite a bit on the rest of the neck too, but thats just what i deal with to have it so low.

I just tried raising the action, then raising it a bit more, and none of it helped. it still buzzed like crazy and choked the note to death. If i ring the place where i bought it (still under warranty) they will say "Bring it in and we'll have a look" So im hoping someone on this forum can help me fix it myself. btw the place where i got it is an hour away and i really dont want to do that trip, wait a week and then do it again.

me again,.....
You said the action (and I understand you raised the action on the bridge ) was not the problem ok?
what about the neck, is it bowed?, have you also tried to adjust the truss rod?
