UV7PWH bridge replacement

I have a PWH with an original ibanez edge coming in soon. Is the lo pro edge 7 a direct swap? I have a 1527 that has one...could swap the trems right?

Or, better yet, is there a really good way to remove corrosion on hardware?

I know they don't make original edge 7s anymore, so its not like ordering a new one is an option

Also, does anyone know what OHSC came with the 90 PWH?

Yeah, it was the one listed on this forum! I actually saw the CL ad before the jemsite one.

The main issue seems to be the saddles + saddle blocks...which I'm pretty sure are the same as on the lo-pro edge 7 on the 1527!?

Lol thats too funny. I was considering that one too lol. We were talking but shipping was the issue. The cost became to great bc overnight was really my only option. It had to come on my days off bc either way Id have to sign for it and I work evenings. Looked like a great guitar. Be sure to post the NGD thread! I want to see more of it.


Funny I was wondering the same thing you posted with the bridge. The little bit of rust should come off though.

Yup

Can't wait till it gets here. Will probably throw a VHII + Emerald set in + refret.

Re: UV7PWH bridge replacement

The Edge and Lo Pro Edge are interchangeable in the routs in the guitars. The case will depend on the region that the guitar was originally sold in as different distributers provided different cases to the retailers.

Nice find by the way

Re: UV7PWH bridge replacement

Keep in mind that the 1527 uses an Edge Pro, not a Lo Pro. The Lo Pro 7 will swap for an Edge 7.

I *think* the Edge Pro 7 will swap for a Lo Pro 7, but I know for a fact that a Lo Pro 7 will not fit in an Edge Pro 7 route. I've tried on two separate guitars, and the Lo Pro 7 baseplate is wider than the Edge Pro 7. I would think that means the smaller Edge Pro 7 would swap into an Edge 7 route, but since the dimensions are different in some respects, they could be different in others, too.
