I have a Ibanez S470 I dont use the ZR tremolo

i have a set of Ernie Ball 2215 Skinny Top Heavy Bottom 10-52

and if it would be wise to put 10's on this guitar

would the tremolo fall?

Come back up?
Yes the tremolo will change position..this will pretty much happen any time you change strings on a guitar with a floating bridge, to fix this I suggest block your tremolo to do this you simply take something like pieces of wood and slide them between the top and bottom portions of your tremolo in the body cavity where the springs are. This will keep the bridge from moving and will pretty much make your guitar a fixed bridge this will keep the strings from changing pitch slightly like when you palm mute and will also keep the bridge from changing its angle when changing strings.
If you cant visualize what I mean then check this link:


If you don't feel like blocking your bridge then you can simply adjust the springs in back and re-tune the guitar until you balance the bridge out, but this can be very time consuming especially for someone not very experienced with working with these types of bridges. but at the same time it can be a good skill to learn.
