Right you are! Six of one, half dozen of the other though. Certainly not an edge, and its most definitely an rg420.

As LonePhantom suggests, I don't know if it is a LO-TRS II. If it is / was a LO-TRS II, an Edge or Lo Pro Edge will generally NOT fit in directly. You may have to modify the trem cavity. There are quite a few threads on trying to retrofit one.

Wow, I never knew Ibanez produced a blue finish like that. I must say that is a nice looking RG. Install some better hardware and it should play and sound like a dream.

I stand corrected!!! I don't know what the F I was looking at!

Edit: That's a very cool looking guitar too!!!

The Floyd style Gotoh should drop right in as well. Same tremolo that came on a 470 I just swapped out. The brass block was a little long though so I used a strat back plate to compensate.

I can tell by the shape of the block.

Trs' aren't good, but they aren't god awful terrible either.

What is it then?

Is it an RG 420 at all?

Thank you! What trem system has it got? I'm very bad recognising them from each other? Will an Original Edge Fit with the pivot screws?
