Lo Pro Edge substitute?

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good replacement tremolo for a lo-pro edge? Is there anyone making anything like it RIGHT NOW that I can buy? I want to finish this guitar project and not wait around for one to show up on evilBay and I'm not trying to pay an exorbitant amount of money for a trem.
Any suggestions?
Its going in an RG570 body.
Thanks in advance.

Get a Gotoh licensed Floyd Rose. It's a standard profile trem, but very low profile if you get what I mean. Best one out there in terms of construction and price. Gotoh made the Edge and Lo Pro, and their design has the same locking studs and knife edge design.

I found an almost new original floyd rose. It drops right in! Sometimes the local music stores have a few treasures laying around.
