Re: edge 2 knife edges

I had 2 new edge pro equipped guitars last year with tottaly bungholed curved knives.

It can't hurt filing, but if it's not rubbing on the body, it's probably ok as it is.

Re: edge 2 knife edges

I can't answer for them, but I'd speculate at that point they want you to replace the trem. You can always try, maybe it['s just an oversight. But usually if the part is sold they have it listed in the parts breakdown.

Of course you can always try and plead for one. 215-638-8670, Monday.
