It's just Edge3 not Edge Pro 3. Looks like you don't know that Edge3 is a low-end term that has no business being on jem. I suggest you sell your trem, add some cash and buy new lo pro edge if that bothers you so much. Just stay away from that Egde3.

Too much rust to clean. Buy one new from Rich, Cottam, Guitarparts, etc... Be sure the finish is the same of the previous one to match the tuners. The color code is in the specs list of this web.

.... or just get some new saddles for it (again from Rich) and save some money. Replace the whole thing if you prefer, but do it with a similar quality trem, not an Edge3. (The Edge3 probably won't even fit right in the route.)

Re: JEM7vsbl for Edge pro III

yea the edge III is the worst trem that ibanez has. and its not bad, it works great if you set it up right but its still nothing compared to the lo-pro. even the old TRS trems are better than the edge III

Oh thank heavens. I thought my LoTRS was the bottom of the barrel. At least now I can raise my head a little.

Thx guys for helping.
Shall I know what kind of "bad" things will edge III happen compare with lo pro? In fact it is hard for me to buy a lo pro in term of money and location....

If you wanna play, you gotta pay.

I don't see many Ferrari's pulling in to Jiffy Lube. You've got a nice guitar, don't butcher it with a downgrade like that. I personally can verify that the stud spacing alone is about 1/8" different, as well as the radius for the guitars using the respective trems, 400mm for the Egde III guitars versus 430 for the Jem. Shoehorn not included...... 'just sayin
