Ibanez Prestige Tremolos

Does anyone know of a suitable replacement trem besides the original trem (2EL1J11K) for the Ibanez RG1570? Would an earlier model RG trem fit/drop in?

I saw the post about different model numbers to get away from patents and that's why there are so many. Has anyone tried an earlier model?

I already know the edgeIII doesn't fit...found out the hard way

Anxious to hear back!

Re: Ibanez Prestige Tremolos

Hi Cook, Welcome to Jemsite!!

As far as I know, the only trems that could possibly fit in the Edge-Pro route are far worse trems than what you already have (EP2, TRS??). There are other options, but they require modifying the trem cavity (routing or sanding) The important question is WHY you want to change trems?? More than likely, any problem you have with the EP is fixable. They're VERY good, stable trems when locking studs are installed and the trem is set up properly.

Re: Ibanez Prestige Tremolos

Thanks for the quick reply!

I'm not doubting it's quality :-)

My problem is that I've been piecing together an RG1570 Pr. since last summer and I'm down to the trem. If had known at the time how hard to find and exp the trems were I would have probably gone a different route. It was more affordable to but a little at a time.

But, now I'm in it to win it ;-)~ I found a couple of places to get a new one, and e-bay is not far off in their price.

The quest goes on!
