new to me rg-270

i just purchased this guitar and am baffled about what trem is on this thing.it looks to me like an edge{the string block screws are long and the fine tuners sit directly above,but the trem arm looks like the one on the trs-2 with the thumb screw.}?im happy so far picked up cheap at the local pawnshop, came with aroland gk-2a pickup mounted, frets have little wear neck is straight pickups work and it has afloating trem, and thats what i was looking for.this is my first real ibanez please i would like more info on this model and your opinions and experiences with this guitar.

Re: new to me rg-270

you mean the GRG270? by stock it's an ILT1, which is a renamed Lo-TRS or Lo-TRS II (i'm not sure)?

270s have single locking trems, the trs 101 or the 505.

That's cool that you got a Roland pickup with it. Do you use a guitar synth?

Re: new to me rg-270

You can use the Roland pickup with their VG-88 (think Variax-meets synth), GR-20 and GR-33 guitar synths (I have the 33- it's pretty good), and Roland also makes a unit that you plug the pickup into and it has a MIDI out which lets you play other MIDI-compatable things (synths, samplers, etc) with the pickup (the VG and GR's also have MIDI outs for that too). There's also a Boss pedal called the Wave Generator that was somewhat of a mini-synth that you could use the pickup with for polyphonic processing.
