RG Jem 55-5-50

Hi All, I feel silly posting a lil 555 Jem in this section with all you big boys but here goes.

I recently stripped/sold my 555 of all of its crap Cort hardware in all of its cosmo uglyness.
I was going to sell of the body and neck but then realized that I still had a bunch of decent hardware from a 91 RG550 sitting in the room. So I gathered it all up and took it to my local luthier to sort out as there were a few things that needed tweaking along the way.

Anyway, here she is, a Jem 555 in RG550 clothing... including the V series pups that turned out sounding great and then there is the most excellent original edge trem that I prompty had blocked

1- The original EVOīs sound better, switch them back.
2- Donīt block the trem, use it. If not there is no reason to fit in an edge because you could had the Lo-Trs II blocked.

Just out of curiousity, did the Edge bridge just drop right in or was there a route job done on it?
