I have an American Fender Strat, and also an RG550RXX with the original Edge Trem. I have since come to love floating trems (once I mastered setting them up, I could never go back). I was wondering if it's possible to put an Ibanez Edge into a Strat? I've compared the Edge to an OFR and I like feel and the stability of the Edge better.

you probably have to rout some wood out of the strat's tremolo cavity. i think it is possible though.

Right, I just read that Tom Morello had an Edge on his Strat. Now I need to come up with the money; damn.

Morello is a mad scientist with guitar modding.

It's quite a bit of work, if you want it recessed, or much less work if you want it non-recessed. I actually recently saw an HM Strat with the Edge fitted in sell on ebay... Don't forget that an Edge kit runs a coin too, and you're not likely to find a new one for sale.

Edge has different measurements than an OFR, it won't be a direct swap. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

I know the LoTRS and the OFR are swappable but not the Edge with LoTRS/OFR.

^he doesn't want to swap the Edge with an OFR i think. he wants to swap a Fender synchronized tremolo with an Edge???

Right.

He said he compared the Edge to and OFR and liked it better so I just assumed his strat had an OFR.
