Backstop/Arming adjuster

Hello everyone

I want to install a Backstop or an ESP Arming Adjuster in my JEM. I have a few of the ESP units and one aftermarket Backstop(non-Ibanez).
At this stage the BS(Backstop) is in another Ibanez RG just to test out and make sure it is what I want. It does the trick and I now want to install it in my JEM.
I have three questions:

1. What would you guys suggest. The aftermarket BS or the ESP AA.

2. My JEM does not have the BS routed cavity that the earlier JEM came with. If anyone can send me some pictures that will help me with routing the cavity, I will appreciate it. Some dimensions like length and depth of the cavity will also help.

3. Is there enough wood between the trem cavity and pickup cavity to route away and mount the BS without the screws going into the pickup cavity.

Thanks a lot for any responses.
