DNA clone question part deux

I am using an extra RG2550 to use for the parts for a DNA clone. I haven't removed anything yet but I was wondering if anyone knows if the sleeves (they appear to be pressed into the body) the tremelo studs screw into are removeable? The new body I have does not have them in it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The inserts are removeable but since they're edge pro inserts have no bases. Either buy lo pro inserts or pull those and put set screws in them so you can use locking studs.

Re: DNA clone question part deux

thanks for the response Rich. I have another question that you may or may no be able to help me with. Am I correct in that there are two different cavity routings for an older style Edge and the new ones? I purchased a aftermarket JEM body without knowing this (if it is true) and was wondering how to tell the difference if it is?
thanks for the help.

I doubt anybody is routing aftermarket for EP's.

So that is to say that the RG2550 trem will or will not fit?

The routing mod should not be bad for any competent luthier.

I would simply install an original edge, more likely easier to come by anyways.
