Today I stopped in Willcut Guitars and picked myself up an Ibanez RG350MYE. It's very yellow haha. This guitar has the best sounding stock pickups for a midrange guitar I've ever heard. Everything is wonderful EXCEPT the mother lipping Edge III tremolo!!!! This thing is the root of all evil.

So I was wondering if it would be possible to take that out and have it replaced with an Ibanez ZR tremolo? I could easily get one on ebay.

Here's what Ibanez has to say about the guitar, if you need specs/dimensions, etc...

If it doesn't fit, or is impossible, what would work? Would an Edge?

oh my goodness, that is very sexy in yellow. i love the fretboard.


SUPPOSEDLY a edge pro or an official floyd rose will drop right in. if you're talking about the ZR with the ball bearings, i know it will NOT fit, the posts are way too far apart.

i say supposedly because most of the time they fit, but occasionally a circumstance will come up that they wont due to a tiny piece of wood or soemthing.

nope,..afaik it has a unique stud spacing so that no tremolo is a direct swap for it(EZ)

MAJOR EDIT:OOOOOPppps..I thought you were talking about the edge zero,you miht be able to fit a ZR trem with some extra routing,but its no direct swap

No, the ZR trems are completely different systems than your standard Edge's or Floyd Roses.

But in the FR sticky, there is a list of what is compatible with the Edge III. I've heard some say that an OFR isn't a direct replacement though. In any case, an Edge should work.

Why do you say the Edge 3 is the root of all evil? TBH, it just sounds like you just don't know what you're doing since the only thing that's bad about the Edge 3 is the low durability. And since you got it today, I doubt that's the problem. It's likely that all trems will "be the root of all evil" to you.
