    Dan, fwiw, the edge route is almost identical, but longer in the back. If it will fit in a lo pro route, it will fit in an edge route

    looks like I'm going OFR then, finding an original edge in mint condition or a Lo Pro Edge in black is a bitch right now.

    The problem that nobody has stated with switching the edge and the toplock locknut out for the OFR is the string radius. Ibanez uses a 430mm(16.9") radius and the floyd rose has a 12". Just saying.

    True for a 6-string, but the OFR7 feels flatter than the fretboard radius on my UV (I've been meaning to shim it but I've been slacking), and sure enough a quick google search says:

    7-String

    Q:What is the bridge and nut radius for the 7-string Floyd Rose?
    A:The bridge is 20" (508 mm). The nut is 15" (381 mm)
    I'm using my Ibanez nut so I can't say I've tried it, but 16.9" vs 15" doesn't strike me as making a huge difference.
