Tuning Machines

Hey everyone. Recently, I purchased an Ibanez S-470 FM at a pawn shop. I was planning on replacing the bridge with an Original Floyd Rose but I realized that the hardware on my guitar is dark chrome so Im forced to replace all the chrome pieces to match the bridge. My question is do any of you know what aftermarket tuning machines are interchangeable with the original Ibanez ones?

My RG470 has Gotoh machines, and they appear to be identical to the cheap knockoffs on my RG100, so I'm guessing Gotoh makes most of the Ibanez hardware, and any hardware that isnt Gotoh is made in such a way that it's interchangeable with Gotoh stuff.

That's just what I've found from the 3 of mine. It may not be true all the time, but it's true in my case.
