Ibanez Edge Pro 2 help

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to get a new body to replace the one on my damaged Jem 555 which is fitted with and edge pro 2 bridge.
does any one know if there's a routing difference between the edge 2 and a regular edge??
Thanks!

Yes Jayman- the routes for the Edge and Edge Pro II are different. You'll have to get a body that is routed for the Edge Pro or Edge Pro II.

Yes, an Edge Pro body will work without modification.

The area that's cutout for the trem block will have to be routed bigger to accommodate the Edge/Lo-pro block. You will also have to open the top of the route slightly for the "wings" of the ED/LP to fit. You will also need to get new Studs and anchors for an EP/LP routed body. The studs and inserts for the EP/EPII are too small to fit snugly into the EP/LP holes.


BTW.... welcome to Jemsite Jaym!!!
