Another think is must of ibanes guitars have 400mm radius and floyd rose is made for radius of 10'' more or less. 10'' to mm is about 250mm so, you probably gonna be a problem of buzz or death notes with ORF on Ibanez guitars, excepts JS, which use similar radius to floyd rose.
If you don't kwon what is the guitar radius, let me explain. The fingerboard is not flat, is curved from 6th to 1th strings in almost perfect circle. Image a line going from your finger board to the back of the neck and extending to the magnitude of the radius, that line is the radius naturaly. Then your fingerbord become a little section of the circle. If the radius changed, the fingerborad curvature change too.
excellent point.. i came across this problem with the 1st guitar i made back in about 98ish.. it is basically a les paul with an "s" body cotour and trem.. but as i made it on a gibson scale and radiused the fret board at 12" when i got a " lo pro edge" trem which back then was at a 430mm (approx 16.92913") radius for the old wizard necks..the wizard 2s are now at 400mm( approx 15.74803").. but the fact that the trem was made to match 430mm radius and i had sanded the fretboard to 305mm.. 125mm leaves alot of fretfiling to do..i eventually ripped the frets out and reshaped the board..and mysteriously all the fret rattle and ****ty noises went away...lol
hey to all, i am a brand newbie to this site but i just felt the need to highlight the above posts point as i think its a point that is missed 99% of the time when people want to upgrde trems..thoughts end at " are the posts the same distance and is the cavity the same size.. there is much more pressing concerns for changing a trem they usually escape 1s attention when new to building or modifying guitars... as did happen to me...lol.. theres no shame in ****ing up, its how you learn, but if these forums were around when i 1st started building it wouldve been much easier and dare i say alot cheaper...lol..
finally i just wanna say that i have routed for both lo pro edge and edge 3 trems and they are very similar..from memory i think the lo pro might be slightly larger rout in a couple spots..but should fit edge 3 or edge pro..i could be wrong but.. aside from the radius issue another prob to watch for is the body thickness if its not an ibanez your putting the trem in..obviously any rg, jem etc will be fine..dont know bout the js
models or the s models though, not sure what there body thisckness is.. just make sure your not gonna have a trem block poking out the back..very uncomforatable and if you cut it down youll probly have to redrill the spring holes and retap thread for the spring retainer and once you do that i would imagine that youve changed the trems everything as its counterwieght is now much less and could **** up your string tension and the ability to hold tune..
anyway, thats my thoughts...lol..no 1s probly interested but i thought id throw a few pics in of the axe i referred to above.. still works beautifully but has seen much better days cosmetically..lol.. still my favorite guitar too..ll the mistakes added charcter...lol
