Will edge studs fit in floyd bushings?

For my current build project I have an aftermarket jem body and an original edge trem with locking studs but no bushings/inserts. You cant buy Ibanez edge bushings in sweden, only floyd-rose variants. So my question is:

Will edge studs fit into bushing made for floyd-rose trems?


I did an extensive search about this but I couldnt find any info. No trem replacement threads or articles deal with this issue.

Re: Will edge studs fit in floyd bushings?

By "inserts" do you mean the metal bit that's pressed into the body that the studs screw into? If so, no - the OFR has a MUCH tighter threading than the Edge (presumably to compensate for the lack of locking insert).

Has the body been drilled for trem studs yet? If not, you have some flexibility on what you use - Gotoh makes the Edge, and has their own licensed Floyd which is excellent. You might be able to order their studs in Sweden, and install them in the body (and just not use the Edge studs) if you want locking studs. If not, and if you don't care if the studs lock or not, you can almost certainly use OFR studs with an Edge - I'm doing the opposite, currently, using Edge studs on an OFR on my UV7PWH.

The Gotoh studs and anchors are the same as the Edge ones, locking and all. Gotoh made the Edge.

That's great news, because Gotoh parts are abundant here! The body has already been drilled with holes that I measure to be about 10.5mm, so I could just order a Gotoh stud kit that's... would 11.3 mm would be a nice snug fit?

That would probably be a VERY snug fit - looks like Ibanez reccomends an 11mm hole for the edge studs. Double check your measurement. 11.3mm into an 11mm sounds about right, you want them to be a little bigger than the hole to really wedge themselves in there, but too small and you risk splitting the wood.

Floyd and Edge studs use very different threads.

I'm even doubting the diameter will match... the thread is most certainly different.

Absolutely not. Edge has very coarse threads and the FR's are fine.
