difference between edge bridges

I bought a secnd hand Edge floyd rose to swap my old rusty trem in my 777DY.

Although it should be exactly the same trem, I noticed differece between the studs, the fine tuners and the arm holder. Does Ibanez changed the design of this old trem?

The arm holder has thread on almost the whole outer surface my old trem. The arm holder on the newer trem has thread on just the part where it is attached at the tremplate.

The fine tuners have a different 'groove'. Just a minor difference.

The newer studs are smaller above the thread.

I can't post picks, because the trem is already in the guitar and I can't see the difference between the studs and arm holer anymore.

yes, old Edges are slightly different than the newer ones. also, the newer Edges have "locked" Fine-Tuners, that won't fall off if you over-loosen them, with a plastic washer that will keep the Fine-Tuner in place.
you can also notice the higher precision which the newer saddles are cut with, in opposite to the older ones which were slightly rough and rounded on the edges.
