Knife edge replacment.

Hey guys, I recently brought a Jem and the knife edges are worn so I took it to my local music store to get the bridge fixed until now I didnt realise it was the knife edges but now im 99% shore it is, and I recently rang them up to find out that, no they didnt replace the knife edges and there for the trem wasnt fixed, in finding this out I asked them how much it would cost to replace the knife edges in my standard 2004 edge pro trem, and they said over $600 AUS so about $340 US, they said that you CANT replace knife edges but instead the hole trem has to be replaced is this true? Living in Australia its a pain and living in a small local town makes it worse anyone no any Australian techs I could contact to get my knife edges fixed? Maybe Eddie from ET?

Thanks guys!

Re: Knife edge replacment.

it doesn't cost near that much because you CAN replace the knife edges on Edge Pro trems.

so for starters you can buy replacement knife edges for $25 from Ibanezrules.com.

secondly you could probably get away with filing the knife edges.

third, please use punctuation when typing long ass paragraphs.

Re: Knife edge replacment.
