First off, this is obviously my first post here. I spent the past day scourging jemsite.com in its entirety, so hi and all that.
Now on to my worries. Right now I have an Ibanez SA160QM in amber finish. It's still okay, but I started to really want something with a double-locking trem, 24 frets, a better neck with a good fret job, an HSH pickup array, and cool aesthetics. I'd been looking around for a couple of months, and the only things I had come upon that I could afford were a Jackson DKMG and an RG2550. I wasn't really sold on either. The DKMG looked cool and everything, but the neck felt kinda big, and I really didn't like the big-ass neck joint; the tremolo also didn't seem very stable. The RG2550 seemed like it had good features, not-too-shabby looks, and a good trem, but I needed to try one out. I went to my "local" music store which also happens to deal primarily in Ibanez, but they didn't have what I was looking for, and the only dude that I really semi-know wasn't working, so we left. Following that, I was finally hired at Pizza Hut, so money became less of an issue. I went to get a setup done on my Ibanez some time later, and my mom left me there to try out some stuff while she got food or something. I noticed a JEM7DBK on the wall, but I didn't know the model or anything because I dismissed JEM's as being bland. I decided to try out some retailed, $1600 S-model with a piezo, but the neck was too fat, so the experience was kinda bittersweet. The dude doing the setup asked me what else I wanted to try, and I said something about an RG when he pointed out the aforementioned JEM. He said some guy had bought it new from that store about a month earlier, but it wasn't what he was looking for, so he traded it in. Also note that this thing was freshly setup. I said, "Okay," just to say something, but he took it down, thinking that I wanted to try it. I didn't really want to, but I tried it anyway. All my views of JEM's instantly changed when I held that guitar. No longer did it look bland and somewhat tacky; it looked freaking awesome. I played it before plugging up, and it felt great. I plugged it in, and it sounded great. I liked everything about it. Then I remembered another thing he said: It's $800 with case. So I was like, "LLOLOLO I WIL GET DIS," and I thought it was a perfect deal. However, I am now concerned about the tremolo. I was under the impression that the Edge Pro was the pinnacle of modern trems, but now I'm not so sure. This will be my first Floyd-equipped axe, and I'm really excited about that. Having said that, I want the trem to be a good one. I'm really worried about the posts and general tuning problems of the Edge Pro.
Should I really be disappointed with the Edge Pro, considering the deal I'm getting on that JEM? Will it be sufficient as my first-ever double-locking trem? Also, sorry for the long background story.
