Anyone have any opinions on them? They sound a bit good to be true (low maintenance, perfect action, cheap, best bridge EVER etc...), but I've heard good things about them. Are they a good deal?
#2
yes, they really are that good.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I love it more than any Floyd Rose I've ever tried. I can basically beat someone over the head with my guitar without it going out of tune.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

the best trem ever. changing strings couldnt be more easy.. also tuning every time wouldnt be a problem.

nice, does it like palm muting? I know that floyds go all over the place, is this different bearing in mind that it works differently? what about harmonics?
#6
it does palm muting as good but probably better than most floating trems. you can always adjust the bearing in the back (way easier IMO than fidling with a floyd). double stops are in tune. i like it quite a bit. that being said its opinion really. you do loose some of the flexibility of a floyd, ive heard you cant pull pitch up as much. but it's much easier to maintain change strings etc...oh and harmonic wails are no problem.
#7
The only reason you cant pull up is cause of the shallow trem cavity because of the thinness of the S series. And i have heard nothing but good, good things about this bridge, and with t he ball bearing system and all that, i doutb you would ever have a problem:\

It's a very good trem system, it's more smooth than Floyd Rose.

just beware of pulling it up alot. i broke mine, the little part of the actual bridge where the whammy bar goes in. It snapped in half. I have some pics of it in a thread I posted on in the Gear and Customizing Thread.

yup right here

Plus its becoming a more and more common problem now that this piece is easier to break because of the depth of the body. This piece has to be ordered from Ibanez directly and some stores will have them if they have lots of S series guitars in stock because this is becoming a common problem.

^^ mine also got broke recently. but only the adjustable allen screw that adjusts the action. the tech here said that it could be replace. but he also said that the part is rare and he doubts that i can find any of it from any distributors of ibanez here.. ZR trem parts are really rare especially here where i live. so what he will do is to make the same part only my problem is that my ZR wont be all original parts anymore. but i think its ok for the sake that it is fixed.

I have to admit the part where the whammy bar goes in, is a bit dodgy. On my one i swear its a tiny bit loose.... But as long as i dont abuse it too much its fine, although i still do the whole Herman Li pick up the whole guitar just by the whammy.
#16
Most people buy the S series just for the ZR whammy
Other than that, they also buy it for the comfort and the sexiness.

The ZR trem does not have a smaller range, it's just that the S series is so thin, that there isn't enough routing to make it go any higher or lower.

Note; Herman Li does NOT use a ZR trem, he uses Lo-TRS.

Don't ask me why, he thinks they are cool.
