Smile Edge Pro replacement for JS100?

So I was wondering if the Edge Pro can be used to replace the Edge III in my JS100? Is it a direct drop in or does it need extra routing, and also are the threads of the posts the same thickness.

Thanks

To best of my knowledge, the route is the same, but the posts' thread-to-thread spacing different as well as the post anchor diameter. I think most people use the edge III posts as Edge Pro posts are non locking like the Edge III posts.

I can't speak for the Edge III, but I know the old Lo-TRS used in the JS100 could be swapped for an Original Floyd Rose. Having played both extensively, the difference between an OFR and an Edge is largely a matter of preference - both are excellent trems.

I don't know about the JS route but I know Edge Pro drops right in on an Edge3 route on an RG. I've done it before.

I also have an RG with the Edge III, I'll check the route on both and compare measurements to see if it's possible. Well at least I know I can upgrade my RG's bridge too, without worrying about needing to change anything. Thank you.

Another thing to consider would be if the Edge pro would need some shims to match the neck radius, i'm not sure about the JS100 but on my JS1000/1200 both the OE and Lo Pro are shimmed under the saddles.
