Which Trem have I got on my JS100?

I'm new to the Ibanez world and got a JS100 a month or so ago. I have already managed to round off the hex socket on one of the string block locking screws and need to get a new one. I'm not sure whether I have an Edge Pro 2 or an Edge III though and the part numbers for the screw are different for the two bridges. It is an Indonesian made JS100 bought this year and I have attached a picture of the bridge in question. Any help gratefully received!

It's an Edge 3. The bolts are not only soft, they also break off in the saddles. Replace with Lo Pro screws to fix that problem.

Thanks for the speedy reply Rich. The part numbers for the string block screws seem to be different for the Lo Pro, the Edge Pro and the Edge III. Are they interchangable? I have seen Titanium ones listed on ebay for the Lo Pro which look much stronger and would go for those if they fit.

Titanium is only as strong as low grade steel, so unless you want lightweight bolts, stick with the steel bolts.
Lo Pro and ED3 are compatible.

Does that also mean that if a lo pro was to break you could replace it with an edge 3?

If you want to put junk string lock bolts in your Lo Pro, sure.

What do you usually recommend for fixing up lo pros or original edges considering Ibanez doesn't make that many replacement parts for them?

Evidently you are very misinformed.
