    I have an Ibanez S470DX Body, Im doing a hardware build on it, but its missing the Stock Ibanez ZR Tremolo. Does anyone know what replacement bridge I can use instead of the ZR bridge. The ZR bridges are costly and rare to find.

    I don't have any experience with this so I looked it up and found this.

    https://ibanez.fandom.com/wiki/ZR
    https://www.jemsite.com

    What I am wonder is, will a ZR2 fit? Seems from reading that the ZR and ZR2 are the same
    except for the redesign of how the Tremolo arm is attached to the base.

    Reason I bring this up is Because you'd probably have an easier time getting an ZR2 that was made in
    2015 then the older version.

    So What I'd do is go around to these Ibanez Fan sites and start asking people for some measurements.
    Or if they ever swapped out one for the other on a build /restoration.

    Ibanez probably won't tell you anything. But you could try them.
