Red face 540 S, Please Help

I am building a 540 S for my husband for Christmas. Have a body (getting painted) and a wizard neck. I need to find a LoPro bridge. The one's I have found range from 60 - 400. I have no idea how or what to measure to make sure it will fit. Or really what I am looking for quality wise. I want to make sure I get quality parts but I don't want to get suckered cause I am not guitar savy.

Theres a couple of new ones on evilbay,plain chrome costs about $250 alot more for gold!!
The sellers name is willberryskittles and he's got loads of new Ibanez parts.I would also try ibanezrules.com as they may have some,it is run by a guy on here called Rich so look on here for that name.Goodluck, S's rule,what a great wife you are.

Oh sorry,if its an old s body 89-93/4 it will fit no probs from my experience.I own two 89/90 models. If its more recent you may have to perform some modifications.Use the search engine on this site for what trems fit,there was a post that listed all of them the other day.

It should be printed in the neck pocket of the body (the gap where the neck fits),if it does'nt say it anymore post a picture of the body,we should be able to tell by the size/shape of the trem cavity.

I think you are right Nurse-c,it looks like a lo pro edge cavity to me from a 90's S. Alot harder to tell than i thought,but i think it is.
