Hey Guys,
I have have this terrible sounding axe that I bought from Rondo Music a few years ago.

http://www.rondomusic.com/wt450bk.html

So,I am actually planning to pimp it up a little bit just for the heck of it. I have the following things that I bought:

Sprezel Tuners

Dimarzio D activators neck and bridge pickup

Brand new Zero Resistance 2 Tremolo bridge (Got lucky here....my friend got me this one from Asia)

I wanted to put all these in the above guitar and I want help with installing that ZR bridge. Does any body have any experience or manual that I can use?

Also, please provide general comments about what you think about this whole idea if it's good/ foolish whatever...

It looks like it already had a floyd rose licensed double locking trem righit? To make it "free floating" you can loosen the screws holding the springs on the underside until you find the proper balance and then you can pull backward and forward on it. So you may not even need to swap the trem.

The guitar will run different with that setup, probably better, but you will be the one to decide if you like it or not. I say, why not experiment a bit smile.gif

You can switch the bridge yourself. Take off the screws on the back side, take out the old tremolo bridge, insert new one, put springs back on, put strings on, and adjust the tension of the springs with the screws on the back side. It needs to float.

Let us know how it went! smile.gif
