Lefty Trem Questions

I have a lefty S470 that I love, but it has the LO-TRS-II trem. I was wondering if I could replace it with a Floyd Rose Pro without any routing. Also, on the Floyd Rose site, they said that the string spacing was narrower on the Pro than the OFR. Is the spacing narrower than the spacing on the lo-trs II?

Hi Yes i think so...

I have an 555 and i hated the LO TRS II so i replaced it with a orginal floyd rose the only thing i had to do was to switch the block they fits on both..

You have to take the block from the lotrs to the OFR but it is no problem. You have to do that because the block on the OFR is to long for the ibanez jem body.

I hope this help.. after i switched the trem to OFR i've got a better 555 and more stable in tuning..

All the best...

Re: Lefty Trem Questions

You should be able to do a direct swap with an OFR.
