GMC swirl build

Hello jemers

I have ordered a GMC swirl from Al (Out of this swirled)

its ready and i'm so excited to begin building it

the only one hang up i have is the trem

i have a brandnew Gotoh floyd rose in cosmo black...i have researched this site to find out it will fit

but i just want to know will it cause any action / intonation issues....i did read the somewhere

the trem would need to be shimmed becuase of the ibanez neck radius..... i have a Jem 555 neck thats going to be used until i can save up for a custom ET Neck

any info or pointer on completing my GMC build will be great

JS

Re: GMC swirl build

Its completed the body has had the final polish and its ready...so not a chance of modding it now....the edge trems are like rocking horse ****....in the UK

i thought the Gotoh was the one of the best trems on the market, it certainly looks wicked in flesh...

just hope it fits with no bother..

i know about the gotoh trem block..sticking out throuh the cavity, just wanted to know if the gotoh can be setup nice on the jem body

Re: GMC swirl build

Congrats with the swirl from Al. I'm sure it's killer.

The Ibanez Lo pro Edge is one of the best trems out there, maybe even THE best. I understand you already bought the Gotoh floyd, but maybe you can sell it and get a "proper" whammy

If it's good enough for Steve Vai, it's probably good enough for the likes of us.
