Need advice on replacing Lo-TRS II on RG - .. need something

I have an RG350DXWH that I bought off someone and the Lo-TRS II is worn... I mean really worn. The knife edge has not only mushroomed but I can also see through the black paint. It looks like someone adjusted the trem height with all the strings/springs attached because even the bridge posts have a clear stripe around it.

Anyway...since it's so hard to get Ibanez replacement parts, I was wondering if floyd licensed bridge assemblies from other manufacturers are worth anything. I've found an inexpensive on made by WD Music and would like to get any feedback on whether getting it would be a good idea? I would rather not shell out close to 200 bucks for an Edge right now.

Please help!!!

Thanks.

The WD floyd should fit, although an Edge probably won't. Just verify the return policy in case the tremolo doesn't operate perfectly with the TRS routing... glen

I believe that I should be able to return it (they have a satisfaction guarantee thing).

Any idea whether the build quality is good? Would it last?

Assuming that budget was not constrained, what would you recommend as a straight replacement for the Lo-TRS II? I'm talking any amount of money, here.

I got it for 95 bucks from musiciansfriend.com... it was a chrome one. BTW does it make a difference if trems are black, chrome or gold? I mean, in terms of the knife edge wear, that is. Or is it just cosmetic
