I'll admit ive done some research, but i cant find conclusive answers. What bridge comes with the RG270, the edge 3 or the SLT 101? And is an OFR direct drop in replacement? If it isnt, is it a bridge stud problem or cavity size issue? Also, what nut would i need to match the fretboard radius and nut width of the 270?

The SLT-101 is a single locking trem, it's also non-lo-pro system whereas the Edge III is a lo-pro system with double locking, so the differences are clearly visible and easily spotted.

Which type do you have? Pretty much all RG270's come with a single locking trem but they all have a locknut already so you wouldn't need to change that anyway.

An OFR should drop straight in but it seems excessive for such a lowly model, maybe buy a FR Special instead, good enough for that guitar without breaking the bank.

Well ive got a Jewel Blue with chrome bridge and nut. I want to change them to black because I like the looks, and i might as well go for better quality. If i go with the special, ill have to replace it eventually, whereas if i maybe find a used black ofr for maybe 100 bucks its the same price as the special but better quality.

Ok, so you'll need an R3 locking nut for 12" radius fretboard. It will probably say on the bottom of your original nut if you take it off to look.

Do whatever you like, it's your money and your guitar.
