Greetings gents!

A buddy has an original 1991 RG550 with the Edge trem.

Is there a way / place to order just the blades / knife edge inserts for this unit? I know Rich mentioned filing is several posts however I was wondering if there is a way to get ahold of some brand new ones or aftermarket?

Many thanks
~J

There was quite an extensive thread about this previously. From what I remember they weren't producing knife edges. Rich also mentioned that they were next to impossible to fit, so the consensus was that sharpening was the only way to go until it was time to replace the trem.

They're removable (see video above) and I was totally thinking the same thing. Fabricate, produce and have Will Ferrell endorse them as "Blades Of Glory"!!


sorry, the lame was strong on that one lol.

I just watched it, hmmm quite a pain.... but definitely worth repairing them than going for a new plate, or even worse trem.

The inserts are much easier to remove than the video suggests. It's also a lot easier to file your inserts when they are out of the trem........
