Edge confusion

I have a RG 550 mod project that I am working on and I had to replace the tuners as the original black ones where lost. I decided to go for Cosmo Black and i love the looks of them so much (it's a fabric covered build and the Cosmo gives it an extra touch) I am considering replacing the rest of the hardware too. Now regarding the EDGE tremolo I have some questions: can the EDGE PRO and EDGE LOW PRO be installed on a 1989 RG 550 in case i should not find an original EDGE in cosmo for a reasonable price? How do they differ?

I have had this RG since 1989 and I never really followed the technology of RGs and JEMs much as I lost interest in them over the years, also I was never a huge whammy bar fan so forgive my ignorance.

Re: Edge confusion

You mean LoPro Edge?
Yes--it'll fit.
Edge Pro has different dimensions

Re: Edge confusion

Edge Pro fits in the route, but you won't have a proper range when using the whammy bar. The sustain block sits in a different spot compared to Edge/Lo Pro.
