They introduced it in 1991, but not for all models. They actually used Edges as well as Lo Pros on various models until the introduction of the Edge Pro in 2003.

Really? I don't recall seeing a brand new Original Edge in quite some time, until 2010 of course. I figured they were all but gone as of '91.

they've been on some 570's and probably some 550's throughout the 90s.

1997-2002 RG550 and RG570 models are notable examples of the most recent Edge models, there are more RG500 and S500 series models with Edges from that period. Older ones are (oddball model number) models like the RG547AH, RG505 and RG507.

Are the original Edge trems still in production for the home guitarist to buy??
Or is it just the Lo Pro.

They are still availlable new and since it will be reintroduced on a couple of models for 2010 it probably will get easier.

My guess is 1994. If you check the catalog thats when the RG470 was introduced and they put the EDGE trem on that. All 550+ models had the LO-PRO, but after those years they were mixed together.
