Can I just stick a ZR trem into an RG with a trem? Would I have to do any routing?

It's easier to put a ZR into a hardtail by just paying someone a ton of money to route out all the necessary material than to convert any Edge route to ZR. In the latter case you're looking at both filling and removing material on both sides of the body, and it won't look good in the end. Plus, the ZR sustain block is too short for the RG body.

Eh, why do you people like the ZR so much anyways?

^ Probably because its super stable and theres nothing to wear out. No knife edges or anything gay like that.

If you can have the money to do it go for it!

Yeaaah, but the arm design is the crappiest there is, the arm socket is weak, saddle screws easily strip after one intonation, and if you break the trem at the posts (which is well within the realm of possibility, judging by the feedback), you're boned unless you have the patience and 4 to 64 weeks thereafter to pursue Ibanez warranty, which you luckily happen to have.

It's a great idea, but the execution needs work.
