Please help with info on edge pro 2 swap

Hi all. Im a lefty and as some of you know it can be a pain in the ass sourcing certain parts that break down.

I have an ibanez rg370dxl that i must have got way back in 06/07. The trem is well.. seen better days and im trying to completly remod the guitar so its studio ready (and astheticly pleasing)

It came stocked with an edge 2 pro (i cant be 100% sure but from looking at pics it definetly doesnt look like an edge 3... i cant find a lefty edge or edge 2 pro and quite frankly i want to try somthing/anything different that is an upgrade that DOESN'T require me to have it routed.

I am looking at the floyd rose origonal (as i have found a few that are left handed) but im not sure if it will fit the current route... i have compared diagrams, spoken to floyd representatives and asked on a few forms to no avail, I cant find definite answer on if it will be a perfect retro-fit. Could anyone who has has done this mod or has been in a similar situation please let me know? I can post pics if required

Thanks,

Pepe

Re: Please help with info on edge pro 2 swap

Thanks for the reply. I have found an ibanez edge pro on the ibanez rules site for roughly 400 aud with delivery. I want to play it safe and do no routing as i have no dremel tool and have already spent way too much on this one guitar. Do you know if the japenese made edge pro is a major upgrade from the korean edge pro 2? And if so it should be a direct fit right?

Cheers

The Edge Pro is a direct swap with the Edge Pro 2 and a much better bridge. You may want to replace the trem studs and anchors too, for maximum upgrade potential since the studs and anchors with the edge Pro 2 aren't the greatest either.

It may, but you're replacing **** with ****, so not a good move.

Would you happen to know if an edge or edge pro would fit without modifications?
