looking for trem recommendations

I have been on a bit of a JEM/Universe splurge recently. Picked up a 2000 7VWH and a 2008 77VBK as well as an older Japanese Universe. The Universe is staying as is. However I'd like to install tremol-nos and D-Tunas on both the JEMS. Obv. this won't work with the lo-pro edge in the '00 and the edge pro in the 08. I do like the feel of both trems. I have a chrome original edge that would go in to the 7vwh I believe (might look a little weird with the rest of the hardware being gold but oh well). I was wondering about a Gotoh FR in the 77VBK. Anyone else done this? I originally bought the chrome edge for the 77vbk but silly me didn't check to see if it would fit....

Yes the D-tuna works with the Gotoh bridge. I've got a guitar with this setup.

Re: looking for them recommendations

cool - am I right in thinking they're direct replacements for Edge and Edge Pro?

Re: looking for them recommendations

Yes the OFR & licensed trems (i.e Gotoh 1996T) are a 100% retrofit with Edge, EdgePro & Edge LoPro routed Ibanez body guitars.

To be clear, the LoPro and Edge are 100% swappable, the EdgePro body cannot accept either of those two however without modification.
