Edge Pro

The Edge Pro bridge that the RG1570 has features a special 'sound metal chip' on every saddle and this helps improve sustain at the intonation point. With the Edge Pro bridge the string holders are actually part of it which stops string holder blocks coming off and getting lost while you change the strings and will stop you from having to cut the ball of your strings.

The design of the Edge III allows it to give more stability and strength which is fantastic under demanding playing conditions.
