They shortened the song so much in the MTV video. That pissed me off.

To make my post relevent:

Yeah, Dragonforce is like having two Steve Vai's that were locked up with a DnD game and a guitar for twenty years and then started a band.

im not sure if its a pinch harmonic, maybe a natural one and then pulling the bar back, and fluttering it like a madman.
dragonforce own.

How did he lift the damn guitar with the whammy? Wouldn't the bar fall off or damage the bridge?

If he doesn't use a gameshark, it's not cheating.

Li uses the Ibabez S470 primarily, it has the ZR trem which is the best floyd rose in existence.

IMO the S would be the perfect guitar if it had 24 frets, or an RG prestige would be the best if it had a ZR.
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!
#14
yea he uses the S series, i think, which are reknown for having A) amazing trems B) seriously light body woods.....and yea in throught he fire and flames i think its just a natural harmonic with some serious f*cking with the bar
#15
meh, he uses prestige ibanez s series redaxe.

The Edge pro and ZR are the best trems in existence not only the ZR.

Its stupid to think that the s should have 24 frets. you barely use the 24th fret and u can just use the 23 fret bend it up and you get a 24th fret note out of it. stupid reccomendation.

If it had 24 frets it would make it an rg, it the rg had a zr trem, it would be a S. every different guitar class has its own pros and cons.

ouch.

12 year old kid -> Strings break, snaps, breaks light on top, whammy bar falls off, hits the 12 year old kid, light falls off and smashes his head, guitar smashes amp, amp explodes, whole house collapses, blows up power supply, new york is gone.

Why is the ZR better than an edge pro?

madpickin seems to know his Ibanez facts, so I'll tell you what I know and he can come in and correct me. It uses ball bearings instead of traditional floyd rose tremolos so it's much smoother and returns to its "zero point" faster. This means no matter how much you dive bomb, up pull, just whammy-wank, it will always return to the pitch you tuned it to. It holds tune longer than the Edge Pro even. I only wish the S series had 24 frets...or that RGs had ZRs...Try one out at your local guitar store, ZR Bridge = Sex...

your just coming up with pure predictions. Or maybe you actually have a edge pro equipped or zr.....

The edge pro or ZR are in equality. Well maybe .1% for the zr since you dont need tools. Theyre the same to me, it holds the tuning holder no one knows about this judgment since your just blinded how much cooler zr's are and the s shape. Theyre great guitars but as i said have their pros and cons....

You didnt read my post didnt you??

IF the rg had a zr trem it wouldnt be a Rg series anymore. same goese with the S vice-versa w/ the edge pro...... Wishing wont bring anywhere unless you become famous make your own guitar with rg style, or s style with zr and 24...shoot....25.5 scale lol.

I missed your previous post yes, sorry. I don't own either btw..I'm just saying from experience, I have used and Edge Pro on a friends RG Prestige and the ZR and the ZR just feels so much more fluid and "stronger" in a sense. It's just what feels good to me...

yeah its nothing that bad really. I actually just care that the floyd holds its tune well and performs well also. All i care about. Since to me your talking like its the biggest thing in the world lol. They both perform good in all ways. It does its job right and we all can be happy.

FU@K EDGE II,III lol
