OFR into Edge Pro II

Hey everyone. It's my first post here and I was wondering if an Original Floyd Rose, or other Floyd Rose bridges, will retrofit the Edge Pro II on my RG 320 FM. I know it can retrofit a TRS, but I'm not sure about the Edge Pro II. Thanks.

Even if the post spacing was the same for OFR and Edge Pro 2 you'd have to replace the bushings and studs. With TRS that wasn't the case because those trems used a stud that very much like a OFR stud.
From what I've read around here there is no retofitting anything with these new IBZ trems. I believe part of it is the distance from the nut. These new EP/EP2 are a different distance from the nut than previous trems. And old trems (even if the post spacing is the same which i don't know) would have intonation troubles.

Well, I guess uprading my guitar is out of the question then. I'll just have to wait to buy new RG Prestige or maybe a used RG with an Edge/ Lo-Pro.
Thanks anyways.

Yeah man, check the classifieds here on the forum. The 540 Radius series and RG 5** series pop up for between 300-400 a lot.

I would go that way. :P
