Re: Which tremolo will fit my Jem-inspired build?
I have searched the forum, but the issue is not one that would happen on a traditional jem, since it may (or may not) accept the Edge tremolo or similar. I think that this needs pictures and measurements for anyone to provide useful help. I will get some up soon. I have researched general info about trems on the net (non-ibanez and edge specific) but the information seems largely unreliable. Some think that the mass has no effect (which I dont believe, since the trem will vibrate with the string), some think more weight = more sustain, some think that it is more the crystal structure of the material that makes the difference. Some think titanium parts help sound if used in the correct parts, others think titanium is just snake oil for money.
Also in response to andrew. I am not counting out a neck or body change at some point. just not yet. As a college student, almost all of my money goes towards school, and guitar lessons. I might change parts when I can save money. Further, I wouldn't want to work on an expensive body and neck, when I have never worked with this level of finishing.
