What's the best Ibanez guitar with a tremolo? (our Top Pick)
The Ibanez Steve Vai Signature Models
There are several Steve Vai signature models with an Edge Zero locking tremolo system, giving you a wide price range to choose from. The JEM77 is a nice balance of cost and quality.
Ibanez uses their own version of the Floyd Rose system called Edge Zero. They're onto the Edge Zero 2, which was released in 2010. This is a double locking tremolo system that's included in a lot of Ibanez guitar series, and often in multiple guitars within those series.
Other Ibanez guitars with tremolo systems use a vintage style tremolo, or what might also be called a floating tremolo.
This page is simply a list of all the Ibanez guitars with one of these bridge types.
Non-tremolo bridges usually come in the form of a fixed or string-thru-body bridge design.

Edge Zero/Double Locking
As mentioned, the Edge Zero system locks at the bridge and nut (right where the first fret starts). It provides extended range and flexibility while keeping the guitar in tune. When properly set up, this bridge is highly resistant to tuning issues, even with heavy tremolo use.
Another variant you may encounter is the Lo-Pro Edge, designed as a lower-profile version of the regular Edge Zero.
Here's an illustration of the regular Edge Zero:

Which tremolo is right for me?
Edge Zero systems are commonly used for intense whammy bar techniques, whereas traditional floating tremolos are more subtle. The Edge Zero offers superior tuning stability, making it a preferred choice for heavy and speed-oriented styles.
Both options can be suitable in various situations, depending on personal preferences and playing styles.
