Best place to buy Ibanez bridges? Need 540S replacement...

I have an Ibanez S540 and want to replace its bridge. I am not sure what the
model of the bridge is. It just says Licensed Under Floyd Rose Patents. I
want to replace it, but have no idea what to get. The S540 of course has a
thin body and so I have to make sure that what I get fits. One of the
reasons I want to replace it is because it is all corroded. But mainly, I
don't like how the block is not solid. It is rubber or something. I want a
steel block!

Can someone please tell me what bridges would fit, and where to buy one!

thanks,

brian

There's no such thing as a rubber block.

I have about 20 EDGE and Lo Pro's in stock in many colors.

Rich, how does one get ahold of you to buy one? Also, do you have other parts for RG's for instance? I'm thinking my black RG 550 would look good with a Gold Edge instead of the black one I have, and with a gold nut, etc.. For now, I'd love to get just a new scratch plate / pick guard..
Thanks

Rich has all the hardware you would want (factory tuners, nuts, and bridges) but for pickguards check out Pickguard Paradise or EKG (both have banners at the top). To get a price and mailing information you have to email rich with the quantity and item numbers.

Some people actually prefer factory parts

Nobody in the US is actually using metric material, it's all the same SAE stuff everybody else is using. If you want what you have on it you have to buy factory [or, from somebody overseas cutting aftermarket guards that's using metric stock]

Edge is no available in black, but the Lo Pro is and is a direct swap.

But how do I know if the LoPro will fit properly in my S540?

As Rich just said, it will work. It "is a direct swap".

When you say that the block is not steel, do you mean the trem plate - if you want one that has all steel trem plate I'm afraid you'll have to go for OFR but it'll look wrong in the rout (sp?).

Gotoh Edge/Lo pro bridges are one of the best in the business so make sure you read up about them before you swap it for something inferior.
