Really personal taste. If you're looking for dive only, you could just buy a guitar that has a surface mounted floyd (EBMM Axis for example). Or install a tremol-no and set it to dive only. Or do...

Surprised nobody has mentioned used Ibanez Prestige. Should be easy to find a minty RGA121 for under $800.

I miss the joke tag somewhere? Or the "I stopped taking my meds" tag. :shrug:

Either way, both of those guitars will be very similar in playability. Same neck and probably the same bridge....

I used to just disconnect my 6505 212 speakers and run into a mesa 4x12, can't you just do the same thing with the 112 combo?

What's your definition of too loud? My old 6505 212 didn't start to sound 'right' until the volume was getting close to 1/10. And that's decently loud. With an EQ and boost, maybe you can get it to...

Many times this. My combo didn't sound 'right' until the post was up near 1. And that's getting into decently loud territory (small room).

When doing a tuning or string gauge change, look at doing a full setup. If you went from 9s to 10s, it's probably a simple truss rod adjustment.

As with any floating trem, don't expect it to be as quick as a fixed bridge for changing tuning. And with the ZPS installed, the trem will be relatively stiff. But that's the tradeoff, great double...

The springs keep the overall tension equalized, so when you bend one string, the rest go a little flat. That's the nature of the beast. If you never want to use the trem, just block it.
