Re: rg370 questions...

Yes, you can directly retrofit an Original Floyd Rose into an Edge III cavity. Someone on this website did it not too long ago. As for pictures of an RG with EMGs....



Hope that helps.

Re: rg370 questions...

Wish I could help you out, but I don't have a digital camera. I took that picture over the summer when I was staying with my mother pretty much right after I finished modding the guitar. EMGs are a tricky install if you've never done it before, so I would recommend having a professional do it. Also, the single coil wasn't a direct fit and had to be "modified" slightly to fit in the cavity.

Re: rg370 questions...

Re: rg370 questions...

The single coil EMG S pickup was a rectangular shape that didn't fit into the route, so I had to do a little work filing the edges so that it would fit. Also, the pickup wouldn't mount the same way as the stock pickup so new holes had to be drilled. I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but I ran into it. It was more work, but it was definitely worth it. My guitar is infinitely more versatile thanks to that pickup.
