Re: Jem7DBK which one?
I have a '91 BFP and that has the Lo-Pro and the flutter is so strong, I can easily make it flutter simply by playing a little harder than I normally play.
It's been pointed out previously that JEMs that are not designated for USA are generally not shimmed at the neck, which could also be a major factor in the ability for it to flutter. That would be something to consider as well as the possibility of sharpening the knife edges and applying lube. Personally, I'd go for the Lo-Pro any day of the week over an Edge-Pro. Even though I haven't played an Edge-Pro, it does have (what I view as) a design flaw, which will probably require you to replace the trem posts with more suitable replacements. Lo-Pros are also more desireable, evident from adverts seen relating to the VSBL..."2002 model with Lo-Pro", etc.
If both DBKs are in similar condition, my money would be going for the '99 model.
