I don't believe it does. Check this thread out: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f21/ed...olo-68062.html

Look into Original Floyd Rose or an Edge Pro.

Re: Will a Lo-Pro fit into an Edge III body?

Without any modification, no it will not fit.

I had to route out the back end and sides of the trem cavity with a dremel to make a lo-pro edge fit into the edge pro 3 spacing on a Xiphos.

The actual lo-pro edge block will fit the gap that the bottom of the block sticks through, just not quite the width and the length of the trem cavity. I didn't have to take much off, just shaved a few mm off the wood so the trem could move nicely.

It takes a mod, a steady hand and a little bit of time.
Good luck if you're gonna do it, I'm sure if someone like me can you could manage it

is it worth doing a jem project with a 350???

I love my 350, but for a project wouldnt it be better buying an alder jem-style body?
