Re: original edge or lo-pro edge on ibanez rg350

Asking the same question twice is not being a good steward of the forum. Please post one time. As I answered in your other post:

While you CAN put an Edge on your 350. The real questions are; SHOULD you and do you have the skill? As for "SHOULD you?" I think you would be happier by selling/trading the 350 for an RG5xx or a newer Prestige RG with the Edge Pro which will result in you owning a much better guitar. As for "do you have the skill?", I suspect not(because you asked what is routing) (no offense is intended here). The success of this mod depends greatly on both your routing skills AND your setup skills. For this mod to work well, the old studs and inserts should be removed and new Edge locking studs and inserts should be installed. Then the wood should be routed to fit the new bridge, both for space around the rim, AND depth so the new bridge has room for movement.

Re: original edge or lo-pro edge on ibanez rg350

I'm not sure if the cavity is the same as a 370dx but a Lo pro fits straight in, i'm told the Edge Pro will also go straight in depending on where the guitar was made and how long ago. The posts that come with the replacement trem will not fit however, as the post threads are annoyingly different. Not only that, the post anchors are a bit larger and will not fit without some sort of drilling to make the two holes larger, so you might want to buy replacement posts to fit the original anchors. To make matters worse, my Lo Pro refuses to stay in tune. I'm not very impressed with it....The cheapie trem worked much better untill it wore out!!!
