Tremolo on my Jem 77FP (i'm a new member)

Hi all ) (and sorry for my english, i'm french lol)

I'm 33. i lived at rouen in normandy (France).
I'm playing guitar for 20 years ago.
My 3 guitar gods are S. Vai, Jason becker and Marty Friedman
I own 7 guitars.
1 acoustic nylon (Rockson)
1 electro acoustic (Hondo)
1 Fender Startocaster (with charvel neck and jackon pickups) (1984)
1 Jackson USA Fusion (custom Graphic) (1991)
1 Gibson Explorer Gothic (2002)
1 Ibanez Universe UV777 (1999)
1 Ibanez Jem 77FP (1989)
A Boss GT6 for effect and Marshall ValveState 8080 for amp.

Now, my question :
My Jem 77 FP have a Shaller tremolo. is it a replacement piece or the original one ? i think it's not the original because Ibanez use Edge Trem in 1989 on Jem guitars. can u confirm that the vendor (this jem is a second hand) has swindled me ? (all others pieces are original and this guitar is really a true ibanez JEM 77 FP...s/n 890665)

thx and long life to Jem guitars and Master Vai

Yes, indeed that trem is not original. If I were you, i would replace it with an edge (wich was the trem that came equiped with 89s jems). If you cant get an edge, then a Lo Pro edge would be the next chioce (the FP came with the Lo Pro from 91 to 97).
