Non locking trem bridge?

Why get that?

SZ for hardtail or S for floyd=much more appealing, IMO.

^ Because locking nuts are a b1tch to handle; not everyone wants to play Vai; and a properly setup guitar will not go out of tune with trem use.

Depends on how much.

But since Ibanez is seen as mainly a "metal" guitar, and most metal that has whammy, has lots of dives and shi, a floyd or hardtail would be most efficient I'm guessing.

Lawl @myth of locking systems being hard to handle too.

^ Locking nut + string break = instant out-of-tunage, amirite? At least with a non-locking nut, the slight change in tuning is small enough that you can at least finish the song. And you can forget about using 15 different tunings on the same guitar. True?

Don't get me wrong, I know locking trem systems are by far the most effective out there; I just don't want to put up with the hassle. It's a Wilkinson for me, mate. And a Graph Tech nut, Schaller locking tuners and String Savers.

Floyds are easy as hell.
