Thanks for the input. Just trying to understand it better (before buying), to me it would that knife edge systems would feel the same given the same string/spring tension, so given that the best option would be lower profile.
I understand now there is more to it.
Now, how much does string guage factor into the trem feel? For example, 9s vs 10s?
Obviously 10's will be much stiffer to play.
I think what he was askin' ya' Rich was if the play differences of the Original Edge vs. the Edge Pro is similar to comparing the tension of 9's and 10's.
Mako, the Original Edge has alot of fans. I can't speak for all of them, but I am one of them. For me, the Original Edge is IT...no Floyds, no Kahlers, no Wilkis have ever worked for me like the OE. It's a nice heavy unit with some mass, and I feel it sustains better than the newer ones with hints of plastic parts...lol Everyone has their favorites. To me, the other bridges just feel kinda cheap. Even the little fine tuner screws are heavier on the old systems...the new ones feel like they're just waiting to get snapped off. They don't move as smoothly as my Original Edge or LoPro Edge guitars do...
There are some great innovations in the newer bridges. I like the idea of the offset intonation bolts in front of the saddles. But it's a moot point for me if I don't like how the bridge sounds or plays...lol I'm very excited about having the Original Edge come back to the Vai and Satch lines...I'm normally not a JS
fan. But the return of the awesome bridge, and the new 24 fret neck are severely tugging at me to get a 2400...lol
Rich, if you happen back in here, do you know when the 24's might be available?
I checked your page but it still sez Feb.
