Original edge trem replacement ?

I have a 2000 rg520 and am going to do a few mods on it. The trem needs replacing I'm fairly sure it's an original edge from what I've read on the ibanez wiki pages (although correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm wondering what my options are for replacing as I can't seem to find another post about replacements for the original edge on here.

Would a gotoh ge1996t fit ? Not to bothered about having to do a little routing but don't want to do loads. The only other option is to buy another edge but they're not so easy to find and they cost a fair bit too.

Yep, the Gotoh should fit fine.

Pretty sure a Lo-Pro Edge will drop right in there as well. When the original Edge finally died on my 1990 RG550, I replaced it with a Lo-Pro and it was an exact match. I actually prefer the Lo-Pro anyway, so I was itchin' for an excuse to swap it.
