Nice score Chris!! I've been wanting an S-series with the chameleon finish but they don't make them here in the states. mad.gif mad.gif With regards to the ZR I recommend taking out the backstop and playing it in full floating mode. These trems are extremely stable tuning wise because of the ball bearings. I like the ZR so much that I had a couple RG bodies built routed for the ZR. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Nice find!!!

was a lucky find smile.gif It was a collect only item, luckily not too far from me (40min drive) so I think thats the main reason why I lucked out on it, even luckier was that it was the finish I really liked as well!
Thanks for the tip on the trem, havnt had a proper chance to play it yet, need to change the strings, its got a set of 10`s on it atm which I dont like so I`ll stick a set of 9`s on it and re set it up! biggrin.gif

Chris,
Not sure what year that guitar is but if it is not an '08 then the trem arm holder on those are notorious for breaking. mad.gif They fixed it in '08 so if it is and '08 you are good to go. If not I would recommend buying a floyd rose arm and swapping it out. Very easy to do and well worth it. You should check on this when you are changing strings since you'll have it "opened" up already. Good luck with that bad boy, its gonna rock!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
