What kind of wood filler? It just needs to be strong. There's a lot of tension on those screws.

Hey, sorry for the late response.

If you do re-drill, just remember that the claw has a lot of tension on it at all times, so it needs to be a strong repair. I would widen the hole and use a wooden...

Look at the bottom of the clamps and see if the strings have pressed their shape into the metal at all. You should be able to tell which ones went with which string this way. Although it doesn't...

The base of the bridge should be parallel, the saddles will be a little off but that's fine.

And parallel is just a guideline. You should really just be checking which way the guitar goes out of...

No, Im just talking about the cap that goes over the nut. That should always stay on. You shouldn't need to completely unscrew it to remove the arm, just loosen it and pull the arm out.

Are you screwing the top piece back on? That 'cap' piece that screws over the whole assembly should keep it from coming out.

Sorry for the late response.

If it isn't set up correctly, then it will go out of tune no matter what. Yeah if use it heavily it would go out of tune after one pull, but even if you don't touch it...

Nah, there isn't a way to adjust individual string height except through shimming individual saddles.

Is the guitar used? The saddles aren't all the same height and it's possible two got swapped....

Oh, I thought you lost it. Yeah you should just be able to unscrew that top part completely and it will fit right back in the hole, like this (http://www.ibanezrules.com/images/parts/2ZR212.jpg)....

See if you can take it to a music store and get the tech to just check it out and see if it needs a setup, just to get a second opinion. If not than you should be fine.

You want the String Lock Block (http://www.ibanezrules.com/parts.htm#Trem_Parts). It's a little less than halfway down the page. Ctrl+F it. Make sure you get the right one.

The springs could just be worn out.

If you don't want to use the trem you could block it and essentially make it a hard-tail guitar.

Maybe a little bit. Does the pitch go flat after you tune it? If it doesn't than you're fine. I've found with my ZR that it's not always perfectly level when it's adjusted right.

I think It would work fine. The intonation is only affected by the length of the string, not the tightness (pitch) of it.
