Smile Edge III replace with Edge Zero?

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to replace the edge iii with an edge zero bridge without the zero point system in the back using 2 of the springs attached to the block, if not what modifications would I need to make to the body? thanks

I believe the edge zero is a much bigger route. So I do not think it would fit without some routing.

Too much work. Replace with an Edge Pro, just replace studs and anchors and you're done.

The Edge Pro is an excellent trem....especially with locking studs!!!!

The Edge Zero won't drop in directly. You'll have to do some serious modding to both the trem route and the spring cavity route to make it work.
