Lo-pro Edge confusion

I have an original floral with a serial number starting with 90, so it should be built in 1990, right?

I've always thought this Jem was all original, but it has the Lo-Pro Edge trem, and somewhere I just read that they weren't introduced before 1991.

So is this a definite proof that the trem didn't come stock on the guitar?

Best regards

It may have been a late 90 that got a Lo Pro.
Or someone switched it out.

The severity of the pitting matches the other metal parts, and I don't know why but I was really convinced that the trem was the original one.

So you say that there might be a chance that this is true?

Thanks for chipping in.

Re: Lo-pro Edge confusion

Hey, don't some of the serial numbers late in the previous year of production carry over to the next years production?
http://ibanez.wikia.com shows that it was only made from 1991-1996 production years and had the lo-pro edge
