JS 1000 Question

At local guitar store I have seen a JS 1000 for sale, and there seems to be a rather large gap between the tremolo and the back of the tremolo cavity.

Is this normal.

(I made pic, but somehow can't post it to the forum????)

On other JS 1000's I have seen on the net, I never saw a gap like this.
Gap is about inch wide behind tremolo.

The lo-pro and Edge Edge tremolo's snuck up nicely against the cavity, right?

Can there be a Original Floyd Rose in there?

Gosh, I hate that I can't post a pic.

where do you measure this inch? (an inch is ~2,5cm, right?)

starting from the screws i get 7mm to the cavity end, from the trem itself it's ~1,8cm.
i got an edge trem on my js90th.

Forget about it. My stupid fault.

I looked at JS-1000 online. The picture quality was bad and it looked like there was a too big of a gap between the back of the trem cavity and the trem.

Due to the bad lightning of the pic I just couldn't see the black bolds on the back of the Edge Tremolo.

I'm just no so familiar with the look of the different trems and thought the guy/girl maybe had taking the original Lo Pro Edge or Edge out, and put in some strange SFO mod or so.

(you know, some people go to great lengths to butcher up a great guitar!!!)

Thankfully this was not the case. ;-)

I will sign up for one of those free picture pages and post pictures that way in teh future. Thanks.
