Help identifying this tremolo

Hey fellas, I recently purchased a swirled jem body off ebay, it came loaded with EVO pup set and some sort of floating tremolo installed. However not sure exactly what tremolo this is. It has Ibanez branding on it, "Licensed Under Floyd Rose Pats." and also says "LITIAN CENIURY" on the block that sits in the cavity. Anyone know what this is? The plan is to install an OE tremolo in the body in place of this, however not sure if its compatible. Many thanks

Bump. Can anyone help? Would it be easier to show you the guitar body/cavity to see if an Edge tremolo would be compatible/fit? Thanks guys

Could be SLT 101, ILT1 or TRS,

If you asking for changing tremolo to edge or other,
cavity dimension is more important because, tremolo could be changed before, and present one doesn't have to be original from body.

It does look to be a lower end Ibanez bridge. I wouldn't be surprised if an OFR or Gotoh would fit right in, but as previously mentioned, the cavity dimensions are the important part here. Measure that, and compare against dimensions of your preferred replacement bridge(s) and work from there.
