I've heard that de ZR tremolos better on the s320, but uses really weak metals, is this true and will this destroy the whole tremolo?

but is the edge III really that bad as everyone says it is? Becouse there are so many people saying it plays godly and i can use those 2 extra frets. (i play melodeath)

thanks in advance (and sry for my horrible english)

well, if you don't need a trem, i'd get the RG and just block the trem. but if you do need it, get the S.

No, it will not destroy the whole unit - just a small part on it. It is rare for that part to break, I would not worry about that.

thanks for stating the obvious. TS already knew this. and more frets doesn't always meen it's a better guitar.

No I've heard that the ZR tremelo is way better than the Edge III. It's the Edge that uses weak metals etc. And yes, it's pretty much true, doesn't happen to everyone but with most people in a few months it starts going out of tune a lot more and eventually you're just gonna want to block it. Just get a hardtail though, I say this a lot, not really worth it to get a trem on low end guitars.
Gear:
Yamaha F310 acoustic
Ibanez RGR321ex
Peavey Vypyr 30

from what i hear, the zr uses weak/lower quality metals but the design (ball bearings, not knife edges) means that by and large that doesn't matter. which is not the case with the edge III. Could be wrong, but that's what i've always heard.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

So i cant get a good tremolo for low end guitars?! not even the zr on the s320's worth it? can someone confirm this?

they do a hard tail rg series

the edge3 and zr trems aren`t that bad providing you look after it , providing you maintain them properly, even a edge pro or zero trem can fail.
