In my opinion Ibanez is at it again.First they want players to be smart now they want us to be dumb.Them corporate motherfuckers are trying to squeeze more profit.First they introduce the very good Edge and Lo Pro Edge bridge then they replaced it with the so call improve but rust prone Edge Pro and Edge III "the Unstable,Blame the Tech cause he's stupid cause he don't know how to tune the bridge series" ..Later they replaced those with Edge Zero and Edge Zero II which to me supersede both Edge Pro and Edge III. to which prompt me to do a bit of homework at how to explain to my client on which model to buy cause some of the shit model was still for sale in the market.Its the model with the "Z" letter they should get.
Now take a look at the back of this 2013 RG470DX.Notice what's missing..Previously all RG's ranging from RM1500 RG350MZto the RM3500 Premium model has what you call a thumb well tensioner ( Picture on the right). Its to make young Ali,Ahmad,Muthu,Ah Chong,Joe,Francis,Gonzalez,Grosinsky an even Hirohito avoid frequent headache and expensive trips to Tech like me every time they want to change strings.
So those who intend to get an RG,do quicken your journey.Hurry before they're out.Buy the one's that has the letter "Z" that has the Edge Zero II with Thumb wheel and that stopper bar at the back.
To those who already has it.Yours will become a collectors item.
