How can I tell?

Hey guys,
I have a question for you. I have found several RG series bodies up for sale. I believe some of them to have been set up for the Edge trem as opposed to a Floyd Rose trem. None of them have the trem in them. How can I tell by looking if they use the Edge or a Floyd?

They'll use Edge systems because that's what RG guitars have, I don't think Ibanez have ever had the licencing to use real FR.

Ok, let me ask it this way. How can I tell by looking if these bodies are ready for an edge, or lo-pro edge tremolo? I love the original edge and want to have one with that trem, or the lo-pro edge, but i dont know how to tell if these bodies will accept one. I don't want one with the lo-trs trem cuz I've heard from too many people on Jemsite that it is a worthless hunk o' junk and I know that up until recently, they were used on a lot of the korean RG's. Maybe what I should be asking is how to tell if the bodies are korean made and set up for the lo-trs. I would, and do, appreciate any help u can give me on this, guys. Thanks much!

Oh ok sorry didnt' realise that's what you ment. As far as i'm aware they are the same size hole. My mates RG550ex trem hole looks the same size as my RG1570 (which of course have differant trems, mine as new his is old). I'm not an expert though and Rich would be the best person to ask.

Look at some close ups in the trem section here. The back corner of the rout is round on Edge/Lo Pro routing, it's at a straight angle on TRS routing. Most of those bodies you see for sale on ebay are TRS.
