So I heard that it wasn't as good as the Edge-Pro or Edge-Zero. what's so bad about it? I might get an RG350EX (with Edge Zero 2) or S420 when I have enough money after I get a better amp.

You shouldn't assume there's something "bad about it" just because it's not as good as the high-quality hardware put in the Japanese models.

Which is also why it's not as good. Edge Pro and Zero are Prestige/J-Custom/LACS bridges.

It doesn't stay in tune, that's what's so bad about it.


Really? So it's like the Edge 3?

Don't listen to him. It hasn't even been out long enough for people to start having problems with it.

This. It took some people over a year to start experiencing problems with the Edge III, and the Edge Zero II has only been out for what, like 6 months now?

"Designed as a cheap version of the Edge Pro, to be installed on mid-level models. due to issues with Floyd Rose patents, it was replaced after a couple years by the Edge-III."

1) Wrong trem. Nice try, though.
2) It was replaced "due to issues with Floyd Rose patents". Patents. Not the bridge.
3) I've heard a lot of people say the Edge II was better than the Edge III.

The Zero 2 is the latest one isn't it? They've only been in shops for not even six months. Don't expect any worthwhile opinions on them yet. It might be that they're bad but nobody has had one long enough for it to wear down which was the problem with the Edge III. Or it might be that they are good and people are just shitting on them already EXPECTING them to go bad. We're not really going to know how good they are until people have been using them for at least a year or so. If you cna't wait that long then just buy it now, if the bridge does wear out a year or two down the line then you can always replace it with a better version.

1. Get yoursepf to the nearest guitar store

2. Dive bomb that floating trem to hell and back

3. Play a sweet lil G chord

i don't get this, "it hasn't been out long enough" guff.

I haven't tried one (it may be fine... this is more about the larger point), but on the subpar trems i have tried it was immediately apparent, just by using the trem, that they weren't as good as an OFR, gotoh, etc.

Most of those cheaper trems, it's not just when they wear out when you get problems. They're not as nice from the get-go (try getting some nice flutter, for example)- just when they wear out they're tear-your-hair out annoying.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I want to know how it goes also. Also i don't think it's a matter of dive bombing and seeing if it's in tune because my Edge III can do that fine. The problem is that after a while the knife edges wear down so that when you do dive or pull up everything is slightly flat or sharp but otherwise still in tune with each other, just not in tune with the band or song that you're playing to.

So anyone with an extensively used Edge Zero II should share their experience?

Its ok.

Average at best.

It's better than an Edge III though, and it feels nicer to me. The Edge III's felt like toy trems.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
