lo pro tremolo on ibanez uv mc

Hi.

I own a uv mc. I would really like a lo pro tremolo on this guitar, so my question is: If I buy an Ibanez lo pro, would it fit?

Don't you already have a Lo Pro 7?

Edge 7 trems are pretty rare on a UVMC.

Edge 7 are rare. Period!

In fact, I don't recall having ever seen one!

Rare as in every 1990 UV had an Edge7 on it.......

They're directly interchangeable.

That's pretty rare! One year production of a few 100 UV's.

1990 UV plates go into at least 5700's.

Re: lo pro tremolo on ibanez uv mc

Question is... if you own a UV, isn't it supposed to come with a Lo-PRO Edge?

I'm confused... I thought only about the first half of 1990 UVs had edge7s on them... My 1990 MC has an edge7 and my 1990 PWH has a lo-pro...

I've been here over a decade and that would be the first time I've ever heard that. There will no doubt be a transition period, but it wouldn't be a half year.
