Quality of Original Edge trems 80ies-now

Hi

I got my hands on a 90-91 JS1, but the chrome hardware is very rusted. I'm contemplating of replacing the Edge with a new one (finding used, forget that around here in Europe, especially chrome).

How is the quality of today's Edge trems comapred to the first ones? Mainly the alloy and knives. I've seen other trems where you strip wire so easy you'd wonder if there is even any metal in there. And how that would affect sustain/tone aide that.

Thx!
