I put one in my RG320DX and I believe my luthier had to re-drill.

Probably not. I fitted my RG-470 with an Original Floyd Rose Pro (the low profile version) and it was less than 0,5mm from the bottom side of the routing (high E string side). I decided to route the cavity a bit. I have also deepened it.

There's a good chance it will fit, but you may need to sand out the cavity a little to make it an even fit. (I've put one in an RG470 that originally came with a LO-TRS II)

If you want to use the Gotoh's locking studs you'll have to re-drill the holes a little bigger after pulling out the old ones too. It's worth using the Gotoh ones though.

definitely worthwhile upgrade if you have an attachment to the guitar.
