Finally got a new guitar yesterday, an old LTD Kirk hammett signature model (KH-502). Neck-thru, Licensed floyd rose low pro, emg hz pickups.

cost £120 with a hard case, and cosmetically was in quite poor condition (cut strings, lots of grime etc.) but its cleaned up quite nicely. Was this a good deal?

I cant find much info on the guitar, but I know it was produced around 2003 +/- 2yrs.

The only problem with it is the tremolo knife edges are very worn, and since its a low pro floyd I cant find any spare parts. Help?!?!?!
A metal band?

Replace the tremolo with a brand new one (official ONLY) and the guitar will be pretty much set for life

But is it worth spending £220 on a guitar that only cost £120? will the value of the guitar go up much? Im not sure how much this guitar is worth tbh. I've seen it listed new for $999

Would this: http://www.wdmusic.co.uk/product/Floyd_Rose_Low_Profile_Bridge_TRSPROC be a decent replacement for the tremolo, or is it worth saving up for a real FR pro?

NO, at least from what i've heard, TRS trems are one of the worst Licensed Floyds ever. Get a gotoh ($130) or a Floyd Rose Special ($76-$99). heard great things about both

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

£120 seems pretty cheap for a neck thru LTD, regardless of condition.

Do you have any idea what it could be worth once i've cleaned it and set it up?
