RG 3120 twilight prestige tremolo arm holder repair?

I have an RG 3120 twilight prestige made in 2001 that's fitted with an edge pro tremolo. Here are a couple pictures of my current dilemma

I can get you a couple more pictures of the arm holder and the piece that broke off as well as a picture of the licensed FR if needed, just let me know.

I've written lcsdds about this as well as my situation is similar to the encountered problem in this thread

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f18/zr...der-68419.html

I shot by the Ibanez forums and asked a good fellow there named broke zr who was having this issue with his S series if he could get me a piece (or make me a piece) to replace the one that broke (they're very hard to come by), but unfortunately he doesn't make that style, so he showed me to this site to see if I could find a solution here.

I've looked up my guitar specs before on the web (I misplaced the pamphlet that came with it years ago) and I want to say since it was made in 2001 it is fitted with an edge pro. All it says on the bottom of the trem beneath the fine tuners is licensed by FR though.

Maybe the pictures will be enough for you to discern, I'm trying to avoid taking out the whole tremolo and replacing it with a new one, it's beginning to look that it will be that way though.

Do you think the solution in the forum link above would work for my tremolo and if so how would I go about getting one made and paid for?

Thank you all in advance for your help

Re: RG 3120 twilight prestige tremolo arm holder repair?

Not sure if it will help, but a 2001 guitar most certainly should not have an Edge Pro on it, unless it was fitted aftermarket, which seems extremely unlikely. The Edge Pro wasn't introduced until 2003. More than likely, you have a Lo-Pro Edge. That being said, I think the arm holder may be the same on the two bridges since I believe the arm is, in fact, the same.

Other than that, I'm afraid I can't help, just want to make sure that if you do end up looking at a new trem, that you're looking for the right model. Lots of unnecessary confusion out there about Ibanez's naming schemes for its floating trems.

Is your guitar the same model as this?

If is it, and the bridge is the same, then Rich from IbanezRules can sell you a new arm holder with very little trouble. Link to his site is at the top.

Thank you y'all, you're right it is a lo pro edge. I just had Lcsdss tell me the same about an hour so ago before checking back here, he recommended me the same thing. All of you are awesome, thank you very much again!!
