Retrofitting Edge-Pro or Lo Pro to a guitar with an OFR?

Would I be able to retrofit an Edge Pro or a Lo Pro tremolo into a guitar with an Original Floyd Rose?

What would I need to change, if anything?

Thanks

Yes, I'm completely aware of that, but that wasn't my question.

The procedure is very similar to a trs-edge conversion;
You'd have to replace the anchors and enlarge the cavity around the trem.

So, if your good with a router and woodworking tools, check the following tutorial:

.

PS.
actually the edge (pro) does not "kick the crap outta the ofr". So if your ofr is worn or broken, you should just get a new one.

not my ofr is not broken or worn, it depends on what your looking for in a bridge, and we have different opinions, so i guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

I think that the trem posts are drilled in different positions so you may have to fill the originals and re-drill as well as the other routing. The trs is in the same place as the ofr, but the edges are different. I think that they may be further back, and you would have to watch the post getting too close to the cavity.

personally i think the OFR is just as good as the edges. i mean.. the other day i played a usa jackson with an OFR and was doing dive bombs and extreme pull ups and it was keeping perfect tune.

+1

I use the schaller floyds and they are every bit as good. I have a custom strat with sperzels and it stays in tune as well as any edge equipped guitar I have. I am sure that setup is really what makes most of the difference between double locking trems.

Saying that, the edge derivatives do feel a bit easier to move initially. Maybe this is because of their size.
