Lo Pro Edge into Ibanez S370 Body?

Does anyone know if you can fit the Lo Pro Edge trem into an S370 body - the body originally had a Lo TRS II installed.

Is that the same for an S470 too, or is that different?

Same thing with the (older) S470, as those have the TRS.

Click the LGM guitars banner at the top. Jeremy does the TRS to Edge route for 25$. Then just snag a lo pro from rich. (Click the Ibanez Rules banner for rich's site.)

The reason I ask is that lots of people say you can't but I have checked ALL the dimensions, and it looks like it shouldn't be a problem at all. Am I missing something here?

To retrofit an Edge/LoPro in a TRS/OFR guitar:

The Edge/LoProEdge will not directly swap into your Ibanez (or other guitar) with a TRS/TRS-II/OFR. A few modifications will typically be required

Tremolo Routing Changes - You will need to increase the length of the cavity (in front of the posts and behind the fine tuners), you might have to widen the cavity and you will have to rout the cavity deeper for full pull-up.

Tremolo Posts - All these locking trems have the same post-to-post measurements. However, the Edge equipped guitars have body anchors that accept the Edge posts which use a set-screw to further stabilize the post to the body anchor. This is a major improvement and something the TRS/OFR guitars lack. It keeps the post from wobbling or moving in the body anchor. The Edge posts do not fit the TRS body anchors. In order to install the improved Edge posts in your TRS equipped guitar, the TRS body anchors will have to be REMOVED (drilled out typically) and replaced with the Edge anchors (glued into the body) before you can use the Edge post with locking set screw.

Best Choice Option - If you have a TRS/TRS-II equipped Ibanez guitar, you can install the Floyd Rose Original/Pro without any modifications to your guitar. That is the easiest and best alternate.

Although, I'm thinking that they may not route the TRS cavities uniformly, as I've heard one or two people on the board here say they were able to do it with no routing.

The Edge Pro/Edge Pro II should be a different story, however, as I believe the trem studs fall at diffrent places, and you'll SERIOUSLY throw off the intonation.
