Question JEM Lenght of lip, 24ft to end of board?

On a 25.5" JEM / UV neck with a EDGE Trem, to calculate Distance of Centre of 24th Fret to End of FretBoard:

647.7mm [25.5"] - 485.775 [24th fret] - 11.11mm[*] - 143mm [**] = 7.815mm


* = Nut to Centre of Trem Post = 636.59mm (25 1/16") Gives: 647.7 (25.5") - 636.59mm (25 1/16") = 11.11mm
according to EDGE manual http://www.ibanezrules.com/images/parts/edge_manual.pdf.

** = See Blueprint: http://www.jemsite.com/jem/origin/jem777_blueprint.jpg
245 - 102 = 143mm.

Correct?

Exclamation Re: JEM Lenght of lip, 24ft to end of board?

Incorrect;

1. Ibanez doesn't use inches, they're metric. The scale length is 648mm.

648 - 486 - (648-637) - 143 = 637-486-143=8mm

2. From the Jem-template: [245mm - 102mm] gives the distance to the Pup cavity, not the lip of the fretboard.

3. There is a small overhang of the lip, over the Pup cavity.

4. After measuring, the lip is probably closer to 9mm, at least on my Jems:

Completely off topic, but the ebony fretboard of the 90 looks stunningly rich in that photo

More specific: what is the distance from the Tremolo-Post-Center to the 24th fret?

Making one.


"Grab yer rulers?"

Ed: Is there a noticeable difference regarding this on the EDGE versus the Lo-Pro and Edge-PRO?
It would affect the feel, I guess.
