So I purchased my RG350DX over a year ago.
And for about 4-6 month I haven't touched the tremolo bar, as in using it.

I just find it a freaking b itch if I snap a string.
Tuning it takes forever.
So it's not really working out with me right now..

So..Lets put two guitars out on the road...

Ibanez RG Prestige
and..
Fender American Standard Telecaster


Tuning wise, which would stand a better chance? :S
if I didn't use the trem on the prestige.

But did a lot of vibrato's and bending.

if you aren't going to use the tremolo bar, don't get a guitar with one.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

the hardtail is a lot better because it stays in tune better, it is easier to tune, and it gives longer sustain
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

The only reason I'm sticking towards a floyd rose is that it keeps it in tune nicely even after dive bombs or big bends..
but it is a hassel to take care of.

so will the hardtail bridge actually be better than a floyd rose in terms of staying in tune?

If you're not doing anything that requires a tremolo arm, but instead using bends and fretting-hand tremolo, get a hardtail bridged guitar.

In terms of staying in tune the floyd is better (unless you get locking tuners, but honestly if you restring properly it wouldn't be an issue on a hardtail without locking tuners.)

But in terms of changing tunings and restringing it's better on a hardtail.

From the sounds of it, you should get something like a Strat or PRS trem instead, that way you can still have your light vibratos, but you have less hassle restringing.

For the amount of work a Floyd Rose is, there's no ****ing way I would get a guitar with one unless I was going to constantly use it. Just keep that in the back of your mind

Learn how to use your FR, or don't use a guitar equipped with one. It's really not that hard... Anyone with any basic concept of Physics can do it.

I don't understand why people act like restringing an FR equipped guitar is something you need 3 hours and a garage full of tools to accomplish.Once you learn the mechanics of a floyd it's remarkably easy to change strings and do maintenance,and if you set them up properly a nice FR style bridge will hold tune even with intense use and whammy shenanigans.

Not even. Maybe with locking tuners, but a double locking trem still has better tuning stability.
