02 RG570L Issues and Info!

I just picked up a 2002 RG 570L MIJ. This is my first post 91 Ibanez and well, it's been at least a couple years since I've even had any Ibanez guitar. While I absolutely love how the guitar plays and looks, I've ran into a couple problems. After I got it, the first thing I did was yanked the TRS bridge and dropped in a Gotoh lic. Floyd I had sitting around. Here's problem #1. The string lock screws are to long. If I go to intonate properly, the screws hit the back edge of the trem route. Routing the guitar is not an option at this point and I absolutely will not go back to the TRS bridge. I also tried and OFR w/ the same issue.

Anyone know where I can find someone to make shorter lock screws?

The other issue I'm having is the hardware. It has the powder cosmo H/W on it, the gotoh is flat black. Not jiving together at all. Tuners and knobs will be cake to find, I'm concerned w/ finding a locknut that matches the fretboard radius in black. Anyone have any ideas?

Normally this stuff would be crawling out of the woodwork, but I'm a lefty, so that makes it a bit more complicated.

I'm also interested to know a little bit more about these guitars. Are they good quality? I read somewhere that they were the predecessor to the prestige 1570L. Is that true?

Thanks for any input guys!

I believe you'll find it's a 470L or lower. No 570 ever had a TRS on it.

Sorry for the confusion then. It's stamped 570 on the neck heel so I just took that as the model # of it. I bought it used so there is the possibility that someone pieced it together....

I'll check that out tomorrow. I have to take it apart again to shim the neck pocket. I'll even snap some pix off!

I just replaced the lo-trs II on my S470L a couple weeks ago with a lefty OFR. not sure where u can find shorter screws for the floyd, maybe try e*** for a used trem and use the parts from that
