Re: edge 2 knife edges

Re: edge 2 knife edges

No way to post a picture? Are you positive it's the knife plate and not the placement of the studs?

If you have to replace the knife plate used EP2's are cheap enough on e-bay.

Re: edge 2 knife edges

Oh, they're "replaceable", you just can't buy a replacement.

Of course you can always try and plead for one. 215-638-8670, Monday.

Re: edge 2 knife edges

I can't answer for them, but I'd speculate at that point they want you to replace the trem. You can always try, maybe it['s just an oversight. But usually if the part is sold they have it listed in the parts breakdown.

Re: edge 2 knife edges
