So I ordered an Ibanez RG4 because it just looked so good, and i've heard some pretty good things about it. It happened to be a perfect priced guitar for me, so i got it. I've heard many many good things about Ibanez as well, and have been told an RG would be the best choice for me at the moment. I was confident until i heard about the tremolo... mad.gif

But i mean, i see so much being said about the Edge III, i've heard that it's real good, and i've heard that it's REAL bad, and I want to know if I made the right choice in getting it. I know that i'll want to change to an OFR eventually, but i want to know the truth about the Edge III so i know what to expect. Should i just go ahead and order an OFR?

I hope that it will be manageable either way, I mean, I don't want to be another one of those people who spend hours tuning/restringing their guitars and crying about the Edge III... ( atleast this is what i've been told, I doubt that it's THAT bad ) huh.gif

edge 3 is a great trem,


ive been using it for 3 years, and never had a problem with it



as long as you know how to set up a trem, you will be fine

If the Edge 3 lets you down you can always replace it with an Edge Pro or an OFR.

Ok, important note to everyone using edge tremolos:
Never raise the action of the bridge without reliefing spring and string tension, this will dullen the edge.
Always put some lube on the edges and the screws also, for maintenance.

I think Edge III is good tremolo for starters. You can switch to Edge Pro later, but IMO you can buy the guitar and then see how it fits you. Tremolo replacing is relatively easy, so you can always switch after you see how Edge III will behave.
