Edge-trem '88 JEM OK in a new UV1000 Case?

Greetings all,

With extra special thanks to kh777, I am now the proud owner of my first JEM, an '88 777DY. Now I can post with confidence! Ha ha.

A question: I noticed that the new UV1000 cases from Ibanez are built for lo-pro trem guitars, as they press the old Edges down into the cavity when the case is closed. I was wondering if this has any long-term implications on the instrument (not that it'll be seeing a lot of the inside of that case).

I noticed that Rich from Ibanezrules was selling an '88 Edge-equipped DY in a "new UV1000 case," and Rich seems to care about the instrument above all else, but I wanted to make sure.

Thanks! Here's to many happy posts in the future,

Congrats and welcome!

I've never noticed any problems with my Edge guitars ;-)

Should be no problem. The foam in the case will soon conform to the Edge. The springs on the trem are much stronger than the foam

The UV1000 made it's debut in 90' when UV's were still Edge equipped. No difference in those and the current except the interior color.
