As per above.

My lo-sr bridge on my rg450 doesnt stay in tune very much at all ! was looking to replace guitar.

Edge Pro III, ZR, or Original Floyd Rose.

Probably the Ibanez RGT320Q has the best trem system on Earth.

^ Desperate attempt at getting sigged.

On another note, if anyone reading this wants an awesome guitar, get Mikeman's C-1. Awesome guitar...Gotta love that p'up combo.

how much mikeman, and is it an easy enough job to replace my current tremelo?
#6
Any original Floyd rose bridge is a good trem, and edge pro III is pretty sweet too. I Find Floyds to be the best for Tremolo though.

am i just really confused, because from what i've heard is that the edge pro III was the worst out of the bunch that ibanez has on there guitars and the edge pro is the best?

Steinberger

Without exception.

However, tremelos aren't that important to me, and I like the look of Bigsbys, so I prefer them.

I like PRS Trems. And wilkinsons with a roller nut....sex-ahy
Rolling Stones October 8th.....hell yea
#10
would it be cheaper for me to replace the bridge on the 450 with an edge?

maybe some new pickups to replace the v7/8

maybe a diy sprey job?

hmmmmmmmm

Im not gonna tell you which guitar has the best trems coz there're a lot. What im gonna tell you is what trem is good and reliable and what's to stay away from.

Floyd Rose:-
- Speedloader or other versions of Original Floyd Rose are very reliable but its expensive. The ones that're mosly used are the Original Floyd Rose (OFR), the Low profile OFR is quite questionable as some tried and didnt like it. Yet, its down to preference.

Good LFR (Licensed Floyd Rose):-
- Ibanez Edge Pro (older version produced before 2003 is discontinued)
- Ibanez ZR tremolo system
- Ibanez Edge (discontinued)
- Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge (discontinued)
- Gotoh LFR
- Schaller LFR
- Kahler LFR (looks and feels different but the technologies used are almost the same)

The ones to stay away from:-
- LFRs that doesnt have any brands on 'em
- Ibanez Lo-TRS I (better than Lo-TRS II)
- Ibanez Lo-TRS II (worst LFR in Ibanez production, arm is wobbly and clunky)
- Ibanez Edge Pro II (slight upgrade for the Lo-TRSs, still uses inferior material)
- Ibanez Edge III (Ibanez solution of avoiding the $17 per trem to Floyd Rose, what'd expect, entry level and crap material, not actually licensed by Floyd Rose coz its patented from Ibanez Edge)
- Ibanez ILT1 (introduced in 2004 i believe, the slightest upgrade of the Lo-TRS II, arm is still wobbly and clunky)

All the high-ends Ibanez trems are made in Japan while the TRSs, Edge Pro II and Edge III are mostly Korean product (1st production of Edge Pro II/TRSs/Edge III are from Korea, AFAIK). However, the Edge III/Lo-TRS II is a direct swap for an OFR/Gotoh/Schaller/similar. The Lo-TRS I have smaller trem posts, so you'd need to use the old trem posts if you want to swap it (im not 100% sure 'bout this).

As for "Other LFRs without brand", an OFR/similar should be a direct swap.

bigsbys blow.. they need some locking mechanism on that shit or something because that shit goes out of tune with even the slightest movement, but im getting sperzels with mine soon, so that might fix that problem

oh and i think the best set up is a floyd rose speedloader with some sperzel in lines.

i think bogsby's look rad on some guitars. its gives them that vintage look. i'm not sure how any of these are as i'm a hardtail guy. i'm looking at getting an old fender with a kahler system and i think itt'l be sweet.
