how does this compare to say, an lfr? i hear that the edge ii's are not very high quality, but i'm not very familiar with trems so can somebody please explain this to me?
Compared to a crappy LFR, this one is better but if you compare this to a, lets say Gotoh LFR/Schaller LFR, then definetely the Edge Pro II is crap. The Edge Pro II isnt the best quality trem in Ibanez's production coz its made out of cheap and soft based material, therefore prone for the knife edges to wear fast. Sure it could hold for a long period of time prior that you dont put too much pressure to it and set it up properly at all times but there's no guarantee on when it'd fail.
