Going to do wood routing on JS100 Need Edge Pro Dimensions

Hello Everyone,
Ok so in my other thread I mentioned that I wanted to upgrade my JS100. I love the transparent red body, and the neck is just fine, so I'm going to route the body for the Edge Pro tremolo (doing it myself). I already started building the router jig, and bought a brand spankin new (sharp) router bit. Only thing is, I don't have the Edge Pro in my possession and can't measure it.

Does anyone out there have a technical schematic with dimensions of the Edge Pro?

I'm most worried about having to move the stud anchors but... it looks like they are the exact same width as the Lo-TRS II studs so I hope not. With the saddles all set in the middle on the bridge I measured the distance from the knife edge to the point of contact with the string. It is right around 12-13 mm. I would be really happy if on the Edge Pro the distance from the knife edge to the string contact point is in this range so that I don't have to move the studs (rejoicing will be heard... throughout the land if so).

I also am going to try and get a JS1000 BTB Used so if anyone has one for sale contact me please. [email protected]

In addition, if anyone has an old JS body they don't need and want to sell contact me as well. I would like to do a full restoration job on one.

Cheers,
Elliot

Why don't you wait until you have the new bridge then route accordingly. Less reliance on someone's measurements.

+1. Don't route anything until you have the bridge in hand.
