JEM555 tremolo swap recommendation ?

I'm changing the lo trs ii , i 've read that an original floyd rose would be a direct swap but i can't afford that now. i'm thinking of a floyd rose special ... would that be nice ? i can spend up to $100 so i don't know if i have any other option besides that one or a licensed floyd rose

Get a used Edge--you can usually find one for under$ 100
Slight body routing is required, but it's a very easy job. There's a tutorial over at projectguitar.com

yeah what Alaska said, check into a Edge. I snagged a Edge bridge off of ebay recently for less than $100. You can find them just check around.

Ok I'll try to buy one of those then, I hope it's no problem that I'm living in Spain right now ...

And thank you, I found the tutorial :

But the routing idea doesn't sound very attractive ... I mean I don't think I have the tools to do that ... at least the trem post spacing is the same ?

If you have a dremel, set it up and take your time - you'll be fine :-)
