Question Edge Zero II vibrato arm post - what fits it?

I bought a S520 from GC & love it, but it came w/o a vibrato arm & it seems like a FR arm won't fit & the one GC sent me (for a Lo-TRS2) doesn't screw on.

Right away I thought about just removing the whole assembly & putting a FR bolt & arm on there, but then I investigated the bolt.
The bridge is over 1/4" thick where the hole is, and I'm pretty sure no FR nut & bolt would span that distance.

Are there any alternatives other than ordering the part from Ibanez for $20 & then paying an additional $10 for shipping?

They just jacked the price to the most expensive bar, from what was one of the cheapest.

$22 + $3 to mail from me.

GC are intending to order one for me tomorrow, but I'd like to have one in the meantime & also have a spare.
They seem to think it will take two weeks to get delivered to me.

Re: Edge Zero II vibrato arm post - what fits it?

GC fouled it up & sent me the vibrato arm for a original Edge bridge, even after I gave them the right part number!
I did get an arm in the meantime from eBay & then immediately noticed that if you pull up on the bar the strings would slip out of the bridge.
Changed strings, thinking that might fix it, but I was wrong, so I returned it on the 43rd day of the 45 day return policy.

Another thing that turned me off was that it would be out of tune every morning, flat. 73 degrees F

in the afternoon it would be out of tune again, sharp. 75 degrees F

No Thanks!
