    Can the original Floyd Rose 7-string trem directly replace the Ibanez lo-trs7?
    I want to replace it BAD!!!
    Thanks!

    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...

    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. :D
