I was looking through some guitars in a store and I found a used Ibanez RG470 that felt decent, except the bridge couldn't stay in tune if its life depended on it. Must be some cheaper version of Edge. I'm not Ibby expert. But I did like that I could slack the strings completely!
I can't really do that with my OFR guitars. They feel stiffer and even when pushed to the max, the strings dont slack at all. My Gotoh Floyds are better in this department, they feel looser and I can almost slack them.
But still not as much as that RG470.
Are the better real Edge and Lo-Pros like this too?
The RG470's have had wildly varying bridge specs over the years, but the vast majority of them have had lower quality trems like the TRS or Edge 3. A real Edge or Lo-Pro Edge are exceptionally good trems, arguably as good as the OFR (mainly the choice comes down to personal taste).
