Will a Schaller Lockmeister 6 be a direct replacement for a Standard DL Tremolo

Hi, I'm thinking about buying an RG450DXB, but I'm wondering if I could replace the Ibanez Standard DL Tremolo with a Schaller Lockmeister 6 Trem down the line, since on the chart it only says "OFR compatible" and not "any OFR compatible". If anyone has any experience with this, I'd love to hear from ya.

Thanks )

The standard DL is essentially the same shape as the old TRS. The Gotoh GE1996T floyd type trem is a drop in replacement. It's also about... $110-135 and made in japan. I am not 100% sure about the Schaller, the post spacing is specific on those, where the gotoh's design accepts multiple post spacings. I hope this helps.

I installed Schaller Lockmeister instead of DL tremolo. No modification. I left old nut and stud inserts and just screw in new studs. Great tremolo.
