Trem post anchor question


I recently got a guitar body in that does not have any anchors. I have a few locking stud posts laying around so I was gonna throw them in there. My question is, will any anchor match up, thread wise? Or will I have to order Edge/ Lo Pro anchors? I do not own any guitars without Edges and Lo pros or else I would try to fit the posts in their to see if the threads match up.

In case your wondering, its a RG320FM body and the route is a little bigger so I think it had a edge 3.

Any help to resolve this issue, cheapest way possible, is much appreciated

Thanks!

Re: Trem post anchor question


I believe many of the tremolo studs have different threads depending on model. I know if you go from an original Edge Pro stud to a locking lo-pro you need the stud AND the anchor as the threads are different. I don't know what thread the Edge 3 has but I would assume it's similar to the Edge. I thought I read the later Edge Pro's (II and III) had locking studs?

But the trem itself, like an Edge Pro, will work with a lo-pro or Edge stud.

The Edge, Lo Pro and Edge Pro use the same anchors, and studs have the same thread. They are bigger than Edge III, Lo-TRS variants, etc.
