ID a bridge for me?

I'm out at the shop and have barely 1bar of signal. Could someone identify this trem for me?



It's on a RG 220 I'm looking at for parts/project. Thanks!

That's a TRS-505.

It's the same trem as the TRS-101 but has cheaper, lower mass saddles.

Ok, so it's a paperweight with guitar string holes?

Had a feeling that I'd be getting another OFR or Gotoh if I bit on this one....

Actually, it's a pretty decent bridge if you change the saddles with any of the million available online. The TRS101 and Lo-TRS (both Japanese made) are very good trems. They're only downfall is the lack of locking studs.

I'd be blocking it anyway. I was looking at it bc I thought the body might be a cool base for a GMC swirl project.
