so yesterday i found a second hand guitar that meets my needs, problem is that the guitar is a Ibanez JS100 built after 2007 meaning i just got myself an Edge III tremolo. (please don't comment on how stupid i am, i already feel like a right idiot). i love the guitar so much and i don't want to take it back (nor would they take it back as it is second hand).

so my solution was to swap the tremolo out. i spent some time reading through www.jemsite.com, and i have come across a couple of problems that i was wondering if you guys could answer.

1. the Original Floyd Rose should fit in the route, key word is should. some people have done it without a problem and others have had to some small modding (as in sanding a couple of milimetres here and there). does the Original Floyd Rose just drop into an Edge III route, or do i need to do a little sanding?

2. it was suggested that instead of going for a proper OFR i get a Gotoh or Schaller FR, do they just drop in or is there any modding needed?

3. where online can i buy these tremolo's, i'm in Australia so preferably a website in Australia (besides ebay i already looked).

4. does anyone have an idea (in Australian Dollars) of the cost of buying the trem and having someone install it (and possibly a little sanding)?
