Recommend replacement bridge

I recently picked up an Ibanez EXR170. The bridge is in terrible condition and need replacing. However, it has rather peculiar measurements:

String spacing: 52mm
Stud spacing: 74mm

It's a non-locking tremolo system that looks like the ones you get on Gios. Most regular Gotoh, Wilkinson and Schaller trems I've checked out don't have that stud spacing.

Any ideas?

It's using Floyd spacing. I believe that is a Fat 20 bridge. The only ones I'm seeing that fit are the Floyd style bridges like the Gotoh 1996. I'll see if I can find any non-locking types with that spacing.

Re: Recommend replacement bridge

This is the part number for the trem it has in Chrome 2FA1C20C
You can buy it from the Ibanez parts store for $66.75.
Outside of that you are looking at putting a Floyd style like the Gotoh 1996 in. That'll cost about 3 times as much as a Fat-20 but it's a far better bridge.

If you want to swap to something like a Gotoh/Wilkinson you'll have to pull the old studs, plug the holes and drill new stud holes.
