How to identify the bridge...

What should I look for when trying to determine what type of floating bridge is on an RG.

Re: How to identify the bridge...

My "way" of looking.

Edge Pro has the metal inserts on each saddle. Saddles look flat. Find these on the higher end models since '03

Edge Pro II and III do not have the inserts. Saddles also look flat. Find these on the Korean RGs

Original Edge doesn't have the metal inserts but has a higher profile, due to the saddles looking a bit bulkier. Find these on older (pre 03, I guess) middle/high end RG/JS etc guitars

Lo Pro Edge has a lower profile because the fine tuners are located right after the saddles (JEM, some LTDs, JCs I think pre 03 as well)

Lo TRS II has a screwin bar, and has smaller posts. The "wings" are shaped a bit more diagonal than the others. The trem itself seems thin.

What do you mean by metal inserts in each saddle?

I don't know how to explain the difference as they actually look about as different from each other as a standard car looks different from a Truck and a Van. My best advice is to just do a google search for the trems and check out the images they have of the trems.
