Well I have an Ibanez S470, but whenever I use the ZR trem whilst I'm playing, I always feel like its too sensitive. For example whenever I rest my last 3 fingers on it lightly for when I need to use it, even that activates it and as a result puts my playing out of tune.

Is there a way I can decrease the sensitivity (ie make it harder to push down) of my Ibanez' ZR trem?

put more springs on it or you can block it but blocking it can sometimes stop all movement of the trem but more springs means more tension means more pressure to move it so that should make it less responsive

Doesn't the ZR have a wheel for adjusting the tension? Bear in mind if this is your first floating bridge it will seem sensitive as hell at first, it's something you get used to.

I'm not a specialist with the ZR trem, but I'm pretty good with FR's. If it has springs at the back, add more, or change the formation to a stronger one.

well I adjusted the spring tension with the wheel on the back accordingly when I changed from 9's to 10's

I just kept changing it until the Bridge was flat. Do I need to turn it even more?

Mine has almost never gone out of tune, this may sound a bit patronising but are you sure the screws are tightened at the nut?

I don't think you understood what I meant....

I meant if I rest my picking hand even slightly on the tremolo arm it pushes it down a bit therefore making the guitar sound out of tune.

If I completely don't touch it at all my guitar remains in tune afterwards

Use 10s instead of 9s, that'll give you more string tension and less responsive to your ZR bridge. You cant really change/add/remove the springs on the ZR, its different from normal FRs.

The only way to increase the spring tension after you've maxed out the thumbwheel is to get a shorter spring.
