Re: Old Edge versus New Edge
One other diff I've noticed between the Edge and Edge Pro is that the knife edges are at a different angle compared to the surface of the bridge that your hand comes into contact with. The edge pro's is set up so that surface is generally flat, parallel with the RG body, while the Edge is set up at a slight angle. There's a sharp corner on both bridges, near where it meets up with the posts, on the bass side. On the Edge, because the bridge is set up at a little bit of an angle, this sharp corner is down very close to the body, and unobtrusive. With the edge pro, since it's parallel, this sharp corner is raised up a bit more, a bit more in the way, by comparison. Noticeably, irritatingly more. It's wearing a hole in my hand. (exacerbated by a burr that's happened to appear mysteriously somehow on one of my edge-equipped guitars. Must've banged it on something.) Reluctant to file this corner down on my RG8670, but not wanting a hole in my hand either. Seems to me like this corner should be a bit more rounded off right from the factory.
Am I the only one who's noticed this?
