And afaik, the Edge IIs are made out of some 'mystery metal' in Korea - they are not Gotoh.

    A complete drop-in for the Lo-TRaSh system, would be an OFR. All you need is a drill press for the new trem posts (cant emphasise how IMPORTANT it is to get new trem posts with the OFR). Get the short block variant (37mm), and you'll have no problems. The long blocks (43mm) won't clear the trem cavity cover at the back - I have a hole in mine. Don't mind though, as the OFR looks great from behind too

          So an OFR will fit in an RG 1570, provided post-drilling, etc.? very good to know Is there any way to buy an Edge Pro or Edge Pro II from Ibanez themselves, and just drop it in?
          Ibanez RG1570: stock
          Squier Strat: stock

          Next on the list: an amp that isn't crap!

            Someone that wants to be like me?? Other than saying "Donīt!! You really donīt wanna go through the sh!t Iīve seen", Iīm really a bit dumbfounded. With the exception of my cousin Kyle youīre the first one. I donīt know whether to say thanks or call you an idiot for wanting it

            But Back to the Topic....

            If youīre looking for a top notch shredder axe (or just one with a fast neck and a Floyd), a USA Jackson cannot be beat. An ESP is just an overpriced copy, and an Ibanez is just a Middle-class Knockoff. But I and others expect Jackson USA Prices too rise within the coming year, so you may want to "kick yourself in the ass" and get one soon. I personally recommend and "endorse" Soloists, unbelievable guitars

            A USA Jackson is one guitar I can honestly say I donīt know of anyone ever regretting

            (You guys didnīt REALLY think I totally missed this, did you? )

              Nope, an OFR WONT fit a 1570. The 1570 runs an Edge Pro from the factory, and it will ONLY fit the Edge Pro. The Edge Pro should be fine for most players. Put a set of locking posts in and you should be able to match performance from the Original Edge.

                Zerb,

                I can't afford a USA Jackson I'm a poor old wanna be guitar player. I got to stick with da low end priced stuff!

                Thanks for your advice and causing me major depression after looking at the Jackson website and seeing what I can't afford.

                    The LO-TRaSh II on my RG sucks - but I realize I'm not a Floyd guy anyway - How long will it last you think, after I block it off? Maybe I should screw a block of wood into the cavity and fill up the trem hole and throw in a fixed bridge. Would look like ****, but I wouldn't have to deal with it anymore...
