Say I bought an Ibanez with an OFR. I hear that detuning is really annoying with an OFR, so I'm wondering...would it be a hassle to tune between standard and half-step down? Because I rarely ever play in anything lower than half-step. Just a concern, 'cause I'd like to be able to play some songs in half-step, and some in standard.

OFR? You mean a double-locking, floating tremolo.

And it's gonna be a major hassle. If you go back and forth between tunings all the time, you're not gonna want any FR-derived trem.

Well, okay I was told an OFR could fit in place of an Edge III without routing or anything. Say I just got a better Ibanez trem, would it be the same as having a Floyd Rose?

Well, the OFR is well known, because it's considered one of the best tremolos. But if you constantly want to change tunings, a fixed bridge would be a better option.

It's irrelevant to your question if you're gonna swap it or not. The setup and tuning processes are the same. But yeah, you should swap it. And again- if you change tunings often, stay with a hardtail. Or just settle on your most used tuning, and then buy another guitar for the other tuning down the road.

You could just tune it a half step down and use a capo...

Holy crap, the man has a point...That screws up my most recent plan, for I am now tempted again by that Ibanez...GRRRR.

Detuning with any floating trem is a gigantic pain in the ass, you're much better off with a fixed bridge.
