Jem555bk with LoTrs2...LProEdge

Hi Guy,I have a Ibanez Jemm555bk 1998 with LoTrs2.

I want to change LoTrs2 with LoProEdge(always Ibanez under license Floyd Rose).

Is it possible this change?

Is it possible to increase performance with this model Jem?
Thanks from Italy,
Rocker


P.S.I have read the old post but I have not understood much good...

You'll have to do some work to the rout, and change the posts.

The area around the fine tuners on the "tail" is too wide to fit in the TRS rout. So you'll be shaving off anywhere from nothing, to 1-3mm on each side. I had to shave off like 1mm on each side for Edge, but I think Lo Pro Edges are a bit wider....

Either way, it's not THAT difficult I dont think, I just took a sandpaper-wrapped 9v battery and sanded down both sides of the rout the truly ghetto way!

It's definitely doable, but you may want to consider getting an OFR, that will drop in fine.

Also perform a forum search, this would get you some brilliant results and the information you need. This has been discussed many-a-time. I am pretty sure quite a few people on here have done it! Hope that helps.
