JS 100 Tremolo Upgrade?

In another thread, it was suggested that an Edge or a LoPro Edge would be good upgrades for a JS100.

My neighbor has a JS100 that I might be able to pick up for cheap ($300).
The tremolo looks pretty wimpy though.

What models of Edge will work for this guitar?
How do I find an Edge with a 9.8 (250mm) radius?
It is an older Korean model, not the Indonesian one.

Any help would be incredibly appreciated!

Re: JS 100 Tremolo Upgrade?

I think you would just need to get some saddle shims to better match the neck radius.
