I believe so. Check on the post spacing at Floyd Rose.com

I think the post spacing fits, but I don't think the rout will align...

Division - American metal that doesn't suck. Much. Even on Facebook, and Soundclick might eventually be updated, too.

IIRC, an original Edge should be a drop in replacement for a Lo-TRS.

That said, any routing you may need to do would make your BP a perfect candidate for a strp and bare tung oil mahogany finish. Throw a set of cream pickups on that sucker when you're done, and we're talking pure sex.

In that case look here: http://www.floydrose.com/instructions.html#original7

It's the routing templates for Floyd bridges with the OFR7 being right at the bottom. I would've posted direct links, but I don't know if you prefer inches or millimeters.
