jem 7V edge pro swap to OE.

Are the edge pro trems interchangeable with the edge or lopro without structural modification?

Re: jem 7V edge pro swap to OE.

You could always try if you have a spare laying around...

I believe it usually works the other way around EP-OE/LO Pro route, ill try ot ifnd that thread I was looking at the other day....

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/ed...light=EDGE+Pro

Seems that sometimes you can drop an original or lopro into the edge pro route, from that thread it seems to vary on weather its a direct drop in or needs the cavity widening etc...

Do you have an original around you could test out your 7v's cavity for compatabillity....

Hopefully you can get away with it, are you changing the hardware colour at all?

Good luck and enjoy your new 7v regardless...

Typically it's a no go, but you may get lucky with the Edge because of the lions claw. Can you measure the width of your trem cavity? I'll measure the width of both my Edge and Lo-Pro cavity's and get back to you.

Dont worry about it guys, the 7V the wife was buying was poo-pooed because it was coming from a chain store and they couldn't verify what trem would be in it. The stores all had the EP version and if I have a choice, it's the Edge.

Thanks though!!!!
