A lot of people are going to say NO ONLY OFR will fit or NO ONLY EDGEPRO will fit. All I know is one of my rg's is a 5ex1 that used to have a Edge III, I put the OFR studs in the same holes as the original studs and it works fine w/ no extra wear compared my ATX-FR which has a OFR also.


only issue is the cavity is design fora symmetrical Edge III but the OFR is a little asymmetrical [larger on the bar side] strictly cosmetic.

sweet thanks
the bridge i have at the moment is an edge III also

so are there any restrictions in using the floyd rose?
like does it not move a certain distance when using the whammy??

it's different on certain models I think.

there's a user on here who had to mod his RGT42 slightly in order to fit an OFR in. it was only a minor bit of sanding to the side of the route, but I'm just saying not all routes for the Edge III are exactly the same.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

I am also looking to retrofit a OFR into a Ibanez RGT42DX Edge III. It seems to be possible.
