LO-TRS 2 trem replacement?

I just bought an S470 for $130. It has the LO-TRS 2 trem on it but didn't come with the arm. I thought I was getting a smokin deal and I could just get a replacement arm for a few bucks. I can't find one anywhere! So now I am considering replacing the trem altogether but from what I've read only the original Floyd Rose is a direct fit and that will cost more than the guitar? Here are my questions:

1.) Are there any other arms from another trem that will fit the LO-TRS 2?
2.) Are there any cheaper alternatives other than the original Floyd rose as a drop in replacement?

Thanks!

Re: LO-TRS 2 trem replacement?

From memory, don't any regular Floyd Rose spec collared screw on arm fit?

You'd want to replace the LO-TRS II if you enjoy the guitar and wish to keep it long term. If it's not already worn out it will be soon. The Gotoh Floyd Rose is cheaper than a original Floyd, and considered by many to be superior. If it doesn't fit, it will with a little bit of sanding to the cavity. Make sure you replace the studs and anchors while you'er at it. Pull the old ones out, drill for the new anchors and install.

The gotoh 1996 floyd usually fits the lo-trs 2 route.

If you decide to keep the LO-TRS II for now, I've still got a bar lying around. Where are you located? I'm happy to send it to you for the cost of post if the cost works out not to be over the top for you
