Ibanez RG7420

Hey, Guys.

I'm thinking of getting myself a seven string guitar. I've been looking at Guitar Center and they have plenty of the RG7420s. Now, are they good guitars? I've tried to doing some research and see they got good reviews over at Harmony Central. The only complaint I see is the trem. Which is the dreaded LRS-Trem. (which really surprises me that they would put it on a MIJ guitar.)

Which leads to my next question. They say you can replace the LRS-TRem with OFR7. Could you replace it with a Edge Pro 7? I've always heard that the edge pro and the OFRs were compatible.

Thanks for your help guys.

P.S

They got a nice used RG7420 in a Magenta Crush paint job. Looks pretty nice.

Re: Ibanez RG7420

This post suggests minor mods for an edge pro to fit the lo-trs cavity.

I'd get the ofr, just to be sure.

I second the OFR, as I am rebuilding a magenta crush 7420.

Ive got the same problem too,
I bought a RG7420 a year ago... very great guitar but the problem is that if you play with the wammy bar (hey 'im steve vai fan), your guitar doesn't stay (pretty good) on tune. and i don't have this problem with my RG550 with the lo-pro edge.
but it's very hard in France to find a lo pro 7
so i would like to order a edge pro 7. the original lo trs 7 is not... i would say as flexible as the lo pro edge 6.

i found nobody who can answer me about the replacement. i don't care about the cavity size, one big problem would be if th anthrax is not exactly the same between those 2 trem : O<------------>O

Post spacing is the same. Routing is said to be different.
