Material used, both bridges are the same, which is a zinc based metal (soft). They're low end Ibanez trems but can hold for a pretty long time prior that its set up properly and not put too much pressure to it. Both of the guitar you're considering to get isnt really worth your cash, you should save up to get a better Ibanez and is the trem really necessary?

Technically, the Edge III>ILT1 bridge. The ILT1's arm is clunky and wobbly, also the anchors arent too stable coz they use hinge type anchors rather than individual ones. The PGM has INF pickups too, only that its white and nothing written on it.

Your best bet is to get an RG321MH

Ah phillipines, if im not mistaken, most ppl there buy GRG270DX/GIOs/RG350DX/RG350EX/JEM Jr./PGM3 right? And if im correct, its pretty hard to get the RG321MH market there, so go ask your store if they have any SZ/SA series laying around. Also look into the S470.

s series are really expensive.. cant afford those. dont like sa/sz cause i really want a floating bridge. the grg/rg models you mentioned are true also the jem. but considering my price range, i can only afford a rg model and a PGM3. im just need to know which is better. also consider the parts.

Get an RG350/RG370, its better than the ILT1 on the PGM3. Dont let the reverse headstock suck you in. I dont recommend you putting full 10s or 11s on the trem as it will put much pressure to it and make the knife edges more prone to wear.

Second hand RG5xx/RG7xx? I really love my RG550, and it has the Lo Pro Edge which I have to say is a great trem.

Difference between which pickups? the ones on PGM and the ones on the RG3xx? They're the same, only the color is different.
