changing trem systems on a js100

Hello all - I recently acquired a js100 for a damn good deal. Any ways I don't really like the tremolo on it and was wondering what what be a easy swap out upgrade for it? I don't know my way around a trem system please keep in mind. Thanks for all the responses in advance!

I was faced with a similar choice a few months ago. Believe me when I say that an Original Floyd Rose is your very best option. No mods needed, just have a tech drop it in and set it up.

If the Edge pro will drop right in, I'd go that route. I've never been a huge fane of the feel of the OFR.

either way a OFR or my personal fav the Edge Pro...anything at this point is better than the LO TRS II it came with! Thanks...Im going to check into boths options. Probably leaning towards the Edge Pro

I put a Schaller Floyd into a lo-trs slot by filing down the corners of the baseplate. Worked a treat.

Re: changing trem systems on a js100

I was under the assumption that the lo trs is superior and different than the lo trs 2? I really hate the lo trs2 trem....keeps breaking strings on me. I bought the js100 for a 100bucks and now the trem system is going to cost more than the guitar LOL. O well...its my only trem guitar thus far.
