Sorry in advance- Js100 trem

Looking for the help of more knowledgeable people. Recently bought js100 Korean model. Everything sounds great and a good setup. But the trem is awful. Quite stiff and even with light use it looses tuning easily. I've had similar guitars before and never had this issue. I see from reading that this is quite common on this particular model. I've installed and setup these trems before but I don't know which one would suit to fit without any routing. I've read countless posts but so many contradictions . If someone out there has actually done this and can give me the exact make and model of replacement tremolo I'd be delighted.

Re: Sorry in advance- Js100 trem

First you should identify which trem it has visually or based on year Korean made until 2008
LoTRSII (-2002), EdgeProII (2003–6), Edge3 (2007-

Then look at this chart

Hopefully you have a LoTrsII since that lets an OFR-trem drop right in

EdgePro (like the Edge and LoProEdge) is clearly superior to the EP2 or E3 but comes at a premium cost. Shims...
