Hey guys. i was looking into eventually getting an Ibanez RG470MH and noticed it had an Edge Zero bridge and i was wondering how it compared to the Edge III bridge. anyone had any problems out of it so far? i was looking at it because i dont have any guitars with a double locking trem on it right now, and for some of the songs ive written i would like to have something with a stable whammy bar on it. im not gonna go Vai on it but it needs to work. any opinions?

Its brilliant.

EdgeIII sucks.

yeah, ive heard a lot of bad things about the edge III which is what attracted me to this model. Saw it in an issue of musiciansfriend catalogue and it said it had a Wizard III neck. is that a misprint?

just double checked the guitar your buying,

it doesnt have an edge zero, it has the lo trs which was a shit trem, but for similar money you should be able to find a used 550.

You mean the edge zero ii bridge right?

Those are new so are pretty much untested. i personally wouldnt risk it but ya.. They might be ok

Edit: tom he means the new rg470mhs with the edge zero ii

He should still look for a used rg550 though
or even a rg520qs if he wants a mahogany rg.

Thanks Angus. Silly me, either way TS look for a 2nd hand 550, the Edge Zero II felt cheap and nasty when I played it, I cant see it becoming a future classic.

just to clarify, im looking at this guitar
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RG470MH-Electric-Guitar?sku=H69989

as i said, it doesnt have to be the most amazing trem ever as im not gonna use it much, just on a few songs. i might look into the 550 depending on how much i can find it for. im also planning to but an Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard so it depends what my funds allow

You can definitely afford a rg550 or rg520qs if you're looking at that guitar dude. EASY to get those on the used market for less usually.

i mean im buying the LP for sure, but im also looking to possibly get a guitar with a trem with it at the same time. The LP is the more important purchase to me though
