Question

Ibanez Tremolo Help!!


Hi guys, I'm in need of some help here. If you want to ignore the backstory, then look at the line above "Thanks guys!".

I have a Korean RG that I'm working on and was originally fitted with an Edge 3, I was going to swap it out for a Gotoh Floyd Rose and routed out the cavity to fit it, but since it would be a while before I actually finished the guitar, I just dropped it straight into my RG470 and now I don't want to take it out again. I could always just buy another Gotoh trem but I want to explore all possible options. I've noticed a few original Edge's going for quite cheap (100 or so) compared to the Gotoh's price tag which has shot up 70 or so since I originally bought mine.

Long story short, is the distance between the knife edges the same on the original Edge tremolo as the Edge 3 since I can't find any measurements for the original Edge.

Thanks guys!

From memory, yes they are the same.

Yes, they are the same. Bear in mind that if you haven't replaced the studs however, the Edge 3 studs are not as good as Original Edge studs.

Thanks you both

I am aware of that, but I do have replacement post. Although that has made me wonder, are the original Edge studs the same size as the Edge 3, would they drop straight into the same sized hole or would I have to re-drill them?

No, you'll need to pull the Edge III anchors, and drill bigger holes to accomodate the larger Edge ones.

Ahh, okay then. Is it the same story with the Edge Pro studs and anchors? If they are the same I'll do the 'locking posts' mod to them.

Re: Ibanez Tremolo Help!!


The locking posts mod uses OE/LoPro studs anyway, so there's no point going for Edge Pro studs.

The inserts might or might not be the same, I think they are the same though. but if they are different, you would just be immediately replacing them with something to take LoPro studs, so don't bother getting EP studs.

Okay, thanks for your advice! I think I'll buy some Original Edge studs and anchors and just re-drill the holes to accommodate them.
