can an EDGE PRO II be swapped out to an EDGE PRO?

Can the korean edge pro II be swapped out to an EDGE PRO without any modification on models like the RGT42?

A mate of mine wants to get it done, but it would be me doing the job for him as he's too cheap to go to a tech, any thoughts?

cheers,
Spike.

The Edge Pro appears to have a longer base plate - I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't fit into the same route; the routing would have to be elongated to allow for that.

I don't have measurements, I'm just going by pictures and having seen some of them in person.

I suspect that size difference is quite deliberate, too...

The scuttlebut from the company is the EP is set further back from the nut to compensate for the saddle inserts and for this reason it can't be swapped with anything.

Cunning or Stupidity ? We will never know (on topic)

I've said it before, Anything WILL fit anything with routing and re-mounting/Re-siting the posts ... It maybe a tad overkill, but if it's what you want i'd suggest giving EKG or LGM a call

Like I said my mate is to cheap to go to a tech, I've advised him to simply leave it alone.

I did a few EMG pickups on his LTD a few years ago and since then I've been his goto guy for guitar related problems.
