Hi, could you list all disadvantages you get from a OFR or ZR tremolo ?

If it's double locking then a disadvantage would be restringing and tuning because you'd have to take off the locks at the nut of it.

This is going to lead to some slanted discussion if you only list the minuses of a trem...

PROS:
They stay in tune
Allow for a lot greater range than a Vintage Trem
Generally able to make more precise intonation adjustments

CONS:
Expensive
There is a steep learning curve when working on them

You can not change tunings without blocking the tremolo to dive only
ZRs and Kahlers have a smoother feel, but tend to lack the range. It is not as easy to service a Kahler as an FR or ZR. The material quality of the ZR is questionable. ZRs and Kahlers can be hard to find parts for or getting someone to service. ZRs and Kahlers are less likely to wear out, though there are many original OFRs still in service today.

-Takes longer to tune/intonate

-Requires more overall maintenance

-In some cases, sustain is decreased

-Changing string gauges requires tweaking of the bridge almost every time

ZRs have poorly made holding-pieces for the trem. bar. Mine snapped off cleanly while I was using it, and I haven't got a new one yet because they're expensive and a little hard to find. Otherwise, it stays perfectly in tune for months on end and I've had no problems with it. They are pretty bad when a string breaks though.

about how long time would it take to tune it to standard?

it depends. when i first started, it took me three days to get it in tune. but now after 4 months, i can change an entire set of strings and have it in tune in 20 minutes and I'm getting faster also.

if you get one, just remember to stretch the strings really good. if you do, you wont have tuning issues. most negative reviews about tuning are because the person didn't stretch the strings properly.

Likewise. Mine sheared so I took it to a tech who ordered the part straight from Ibanez. Delivery was quick but they sent the wrong part so he had tor eorder it and its been something like 2-3 weeks since then.
Other than that, its a pretty cool trem.
