Ibanez Edge Pro is supposed to be one of the best if not THE best trem on the market.

Oh cmon, it's not that hard. And anyways, how often do you change strings? Once or twice a month?

If you're gonna put on an Ibanez bridge, skip the Ibanez name and just get a good Gotoh Floyd knockoff, unless of course you can find an Original Edge.

I'm open to any bridge that will stay in tune. Floyd, Gotoh, hell even Kahler.

How are the Gotoh knockoffs?

Thus meaning you're going for a FRO?


Possibly. I don't have alot of cash to spend on this build ($400 max), so it depends on how much money I have left after I buy the other parts, I already got the wood for the body though.

Kahler's are bitches dude, when you bend you have to make a dive bomb for it to get back in tune

It's really a Floyd.... Maybe not as good quality metal, I dunno I don't know alot about that, but it's made exactly the same and my friend's stays intune in his jaguar (yes, it does look some what odd)

I've only had that problem with the low end X-trem series Kahlers.

Back to the topic of trems I like Schaller's LFR and FRO though they are pricey.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

The ZR's meant to be the smoothest and best at staying in tune but it's a bitch to install. The Edge Zero is a bit easier, but i'd go for the floyd original because they're easy to find and install and they play great.
#27
Go for the Gotoh... very nice, top quality - on par with Floyd Rose and very good tuning stability.
#28
my vote's for the zr. But if the guitar isn't already routed for it I'm not sure how big a pain it'll be to put it in, nor do I know anywhere to find templates for it. So if that's not for you though go original all the way. ebay has alot of good deals on them.

Also, I might try and stay away from guitar fetish floyds. Schaller uses secific metals to make the knife edge super hard and not wear down like licensed versions. I'm sure if you went for the gfs onee it'd last a week then have the posts worn into the baseplate half an inch... My opinion though.
*insert witty statement here*
#29
OFR. Else an original ibanez edge bridge.
I wouldn't say either of ibanez's new bridges [edge pro or edge zero] are a step up from a floyd. And if they are, it isn't by much

Also plus one to the bigsby, but I don't think you want that style for some reason...

I really like that tremolo on my Ibanez S470, but I'm having a hard time finding one that isn't to expensive. I'm going to bet the routing is super fun too! <----(sarcasm)

My guitar is going to super thin, like the S-series, so the sustain block can't be too big (thus why I like the S).

Bigsby.




I just doesn't go with the build I'm doing. It looks a hybrid of a G&L 100 and a 60's Vox Huricane.

It's not that bad if you have a little bit of a clue of what you're doing and have a template or a guit that's alreaddy routed out for one. It's easy just to take the measurements and cut it out.

Don't be afraid to screw it up a little bit, if everything was perfect, shit, we'd be playing jazz.

The neck I'm going to use has a nut width of 11/16". If I bought a Gotoh Floyd with a nut thats 1 5/8" and just used my own nut, that'd work right?

Yep, that shouldn't affect (effect) anything, its just the nuts

That's what I thought. It would cost an extra $34 just for the correct sized nut.

All I have heard is that if you want a floyd to get an original, Goth or Schaller and the rest are ussless and it all wears out in a few months and wont stay in tune because the metal is to soft especially Ibanez bridges. But this is only talking from what I have heard as I havent had any expereance for a long enough time to tell if this is true. But my freinds Ibanez bridge dose feel very "cheap" and un-stable but I dont know which model bridge it is in particular, but it is a licensed floyd. Might just be because its floting .

Pretty sure that ibanez designed the ZR trem for the S series because their normal trem [which is close to a floyd] couldn't be recessed as the body was to thin. Much like putting a floyd on an sg.
