Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

Hello everybody

I have an Ibanez JS100 and the floyd is really getting me crazy. It's an edge i think and i want to get rid of it but some questions come to my mind

First, does the Original Floyd Rose fits in the js100 floyd's cavity?

Second question, which one is better, Edge Pro or Original Floyd Rose?

Thanks for you answer

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

Welcome to Jemsite!!!

You probably have an Edge-III or an edge pro-II (depending on year, the older models have the EP2). So you don't actually have an "Edge" But an inferior model of the edge.

That said, The Edge pro will probably fit without any modification (or at least minimal modification IIRC). The debates are endless of "which trem is better", but in your case I would recommend the Edge-Pro, I also recommend you pick up a set of the "locking studs for edge pro mod" sold from "IbanezRules" (at the banner on top of this site).

Good luck!

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

Thanks for the fast reply
I actually bought the guitar in 2007 or 2008.
You're right, i was mistaken about the "edge", i wrote the message a little too faast apparently, it's a lo-pro

I'd give a look at IbanezRules

Is it easy to set up an edge pro? I mean, does it really need to be done by a luthier or can i do it properly if i'm careful?

Thanks again

i dont think that js100's ever came with a lo pro. you probably have the edge III trem.

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

Do we even care about which one it is? It's the worst tremolo i've ever played with lol

More seriously, i think you're right DownHomeRock... when i look on google it really looks like mine but when i searched for lo-pro it didn't look quite different...

Anyway, apparently the shipping to Belgium with IbanezRules is $45 so i don't think i'll buy it there. Without that shipping it would have been a really good deal ^^

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

If you wanted to pay CASH [Western Union] it could ship regular mail for $20, no insurance, and no tracking, which makes it a non option for Paypal. Which is why you were quoted for EMS. Of course it would cost you at least the $25 to make a WU payment.......

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

I found a french online store which sells the edge pro for 179€ and free shipping to Belgium, it will be easier, cheaper and probably faster for me to order it there instead than from you

Now i'm still wondering whether i can change it by myself or not. It doesn't look complicated with the tutorial on ibanezrules.

Re: Original Floyd Rose or Edge Pro?

I have a couple of guitars with the edge pro, and recently had one of my old ones with the original Ibanez floyd rose set up, I haven't played it in like 15 years. And I must say, the original one both feels and sounds much better then the new ones! Have no idea why, it just seems... better..

THIS. SO VERY THIS.

There is no better trem replacement for lockers. I personally favour the non locking wilkinson trems these days, because they are EXCELLENT, but for locking trems, nothing beats the gotoh.
