Lo Trs Tem II Replacement

Hey Kids!!


I have a late 90's S-470 that has a lo trs trem II, I am looking at up grading the guitar with some new parts and was origanally lookin just to swap out the chrome Lo trs II with a Blk one , but cant find any , and from wat ive been reading, the dont have the greatest reviews.. so my queston is this!! is there anything that can just be swapped out for it, like an original floyd? wanna make this as painless as possible! thanks!

I swapped mine with an original edge..... no better upgrade than that in my opinion (debatable). No modification needed apart from a very minor skimming of the back edges. You will notice the trem cav is a bit bigger but nothing dramatic.

Re: Lo Trs Tem II Replacement

But Can an Original Floyd Rose Drop in or do the pegs or any other mods have to be done?

Hi Mate, going by memory, the answer is yes in terms of OFR to LoTRS cav post spacing but I am not 100% sorry. I think a mate of mate was saying he swapped his trs out with an OFR.

NUMO who is a member posted an awesome write up about what trems fit where etc with pics but I cant seem to find it atm sorry, search it out, all your questions should be answered.

Gotoh Floyd Rose all the way, cheaper than OFR and Edge, and a fantastic trem. fits straight in on the posts, but worthwhile putting in the new posts and anchors to take avantage of the locking posts that Gotoh provide.

Everywhere I go, everybody always praises Gotoh. I suppose, with good reasons. But one thing I don't get: why can't I find ANY official Gotoh page on the Internet?? I'm really confused about that.

At least, OFR has Schaller's official page, floydrose.com, originalfloydrose.com etc etc... but Gotoh zero.

Or I just wasn't successful in my quest?

Re: Lo Trs Tem II Replacement

im pretty sure you dont need any modifications to swap the lo-trs II with an original floyd rose. that's the best deal i think
