Is this a proper Edge tremolo or a cheaper one?

I don't understand why it's so cheap. There's a lot of similarities but it also doesn't seem to have the replaceable knife edges.

Is this something that would work or something to avoid?

Looks like Edge III. They come with RG350,370,450... series. Suppose to be decent. Original Edge is much better.

Re: Is this a proper Edge tremolo or a cheaper one?

Thought so. Thanks guys.

I have an older Edge that has a worn saddle on the high E and makes a ping sound during big bends. Do you sell black saddles for the original Edge Rich? I usually only see Edge these days in chrome or cosmo black.

I worry that the new one won't match with the others though. Another idea I had was to switch the saddles of the high E and low E, assuming they are the same height/radius, and that the worn part won't affect the thicker wound string.

Any ideas for this problem?

Oh. Thanks for clearing that up.

I'll try that idea swapping idea first, and if that doesn't work, I'll be hunting around for a new black saddle. I had a quick look on the Ibanezrules website and it seems that some are in stock. I'd try for all 6 but it starts to get expensive and to the point of being better off with a whole new bridge.
