Re: 2002 Ibanez RG450 Limited Edition NOS
Yes, I've heard a few RG 450s had Edge Pro bridges too. I think with the limited edition ones it was either a TRS or TRS II. I dont think they make the TRS or TRS II bridge anymore. I think the new "cheapy" is the Edge III. My understanding is that it falls in between a TRS & TRS II. It's apparently better than a TRSII but not as good a TRS. I would have thought my RG 450 would have had a nicer bridge being a made in Japan guitar. However, they had to do something to justify the pricepoint. So, I understand why. I'll just use it and if a year or so down the road it starts to give me trouble, I'll throw in a Floyd Rose Pro, which apparently is a perfect fit without any needed mods. It would be nice if it holds up and I don't have to spend a couple hundred bucks. Does anyone know off of the top of their head which Floyd Rose Pro is needed as far as R1,R2,R3 etc.? I think it's an issue of nut width. Is it recommended you replace the locking nut while your at it? Is the locking nut that comes on the cheaper trem guitars made of a cheaper metal as well?
