Hey guys. You did not misread the title. It says Edge II, not Edge III. Not Edge Pro II, just Edge II.



I'm looking into buying an Ibanez Joe Satriani Model that was made about 13 years ago, before the Edge III was made. So I'm trying to find out what tremelo system would have been installed in the guitar, as well as the pickups. Any ideas? Here's a picture if it helps

I assume you're from NY. Because I see the same exact posting in Brooklyn.

But to answer your question, I don't think there was an Edge II, but an Edge Pro II

2003 also brought a replacement for the LoTRS series in face of Edge Pro II. Unlike its predecessor, the EPII is not horrible, but at the same time, unlike its progenitor - the Edge Pro - it's not great or good. EPII is a Korean bridge designed for Korean guitars, and it is in essence a downgrade of the Edge Pro. Cheaper materials, less complex construction - the EPII loses the Edge arm in favour of a smooth push-in arm, and the Edge Pro saddle "sound chip".

Similar to Edge Pro, the EPII will accept strings with the ball ends, and you will not lose the string lockers. Much unlike other cheap Licensed Floyd Rose trems, the EPII has an easily replaceable knife edge plate. If you have a supply of these parts, your EPII can last longer through replacing the knife edge as it goes dull. Which is not to say that you shouldn't get a guitar with an Edge Pro instead.

no locking nut. locking tuners and low friction nut.

But in that picture, I'm pretty sure I clearly see a locking nut?

No, I'm pretty sure that's a Lo-TRS.
EDIT:

See how the trem looks like this?

Note the angled section on the baseplate and the design of it in general.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Oh, ****, I thought you were talking about the TS's trem, 'cause that IS a lo-TRS.

Yeah, but we haven't seen the headstock, have we? I'm certain that's a Lo-TRS. Even with the crap pic, it's very clearly not an Edge trem.

im just answering what an edge II is if that is indeed one. However looks like a lo-trs or a fake js due to shaddy looking bridge.

A fake is a good possibility.
If it's not, it's a JS100.
