Smile OFR or Edge Pro to replace Edge 3

Hi there, Ive owned a Jem 555 for like 2 years now and although I love my Jem, even after I've tuned and intonated my guitar, if I do a couple of little dives, she goes out of tune. I was thinking on swapping out the Edge 3 thats in it for either an Edge Pro or an OFR. However, even though Ive read countless forum threads, ive heard the OFR will fit, and that it wont fit without modifications! I really dont want to buy a OFR just to find out that it wont fit. My Edge 3 is 34mm at the little wings that span the front of the bridge as where Ive seen 1 diagram on the internet state that the OFR was 39.5mm at this same point. Does anyone have any concrete evidence or reference that they can give me that verifies if the OFR will fit an Edge 3 cavity. It seems that most people do agree that the Edge Pro will fit the Edge 3 cavity, but Im really curious about the OFR. Btw I've seen that old list that charts out what tremolo will fit certain cavities... I need more to go on than that .Thanks for listening.....

Re: OFR or Edge Pro to replace Edge 3

There's a whole thread stickied at the top of this forum all about replacing the Edge III if you didn't see it already. It is stated in that thread (and others around this site) that the Edge Pro is a direct fit. Some have found that the OFR work, but those reports are inconsistent. Safest bet is Edge Pro.

Thanks for the reply LonePhantam. I've sifted through so many threads about the Edge 3; trying to find out without a doubt, which tremolo would just be a direct swap, without modifications. As you stated the threads that mentioned the OFR would be a direct swap were basically equalled with posts that stated the OFR would not without modifications. I recently found the dimensions on Google for the OFR and I would have to widen the top part of my Edge 3 cavity by at least 6mm in order for it to fit; not something I'm looking at getting into, not gonna chance ruining the finish! Looks like I'll be setting my sites for an Edge Pro! Thanks!

Re: OFR or Edge Pro to replace Edge 3

I know im probably posting this in the wrong place but im desperate...

I have a left handed ibanez rg370dxl which came standard with an edge pro 2. The thing is old and worn and i lost the arm and want to upgrade to an origonal floyd rose. Being leftbhanded its been near imposible to find a replacement edge pro2.

I have bwen trying to find a definite answer to this age old quesrion, emailed several techs, and the companies themselves and no one can tell me for sure...
Can someone please please tell me if this will work (someone that has done it...there has to be someone)
I will post pictures if necessary.
U dont want to waste 300 bucks and this is my last resort.

Kind regards,

Pepe
