Re: Egde Pro on JEM-555WH

an OFR is a direct swap..youre better off with that cause you have to route wood for an edge pro

isaac is correct. I have done this mod but if you are not really good with routing, I recommend you do not attempt it. If you want to details, shoot me an email.

On this site he speaks of a swap of vibrato ibanez
http://lawl.net/gtr/trems

LoTRS I/II: most famously known to be replaced with the Original Floyd Rose or Gotoh FR. If you are replacing the studs, you will need to drill your guitar to accomodate the new bigger studs.

Edge Pro II: swaps with the Edge Pro. The locking stud mod is also recommended.

Edge III: swaps with the Original Floyd Rose. Stud rule applies, OFR studs are bigger. Additionally, there is a variation in Edge III routes that prevent the easy swap in some series.

Hello

Yeah i have the same as van Halen had.

It was on a 80's kramer the OFR is Made in Germany.

Mrvai said you have to route the swap to OFR on a 555 And i said for OFR you can put i right in... Thats it.

Re: Egde Pro on JEM-555WH

well here it fits normally without mods.. i heard that we have to change the studs and remake the stud holes.. but i gently put the edgre on the trs studs and the thing worked.. the tremolo dont touch the wood and the screws fit in tremolo cavity.. that peculiar "slap the whammy bar" effect, so good in the edge tremolos are not so efective.. im considering change the studs too.. but the guitar is working on tune.. perfectly..

Wrong.

The swap to an Edge Pro is the most logical one if the guitar is equipped with an Edge Pro II. The swap is doable because both trems are similar in dimensions and the route is the same.
