I have to original black dome knobs, but I like the JEM/Numbered knobs better.
I Also just realized I may be dating this guitar wrong. I never can quite remember the year I bought this, thought the serial number F920681 meant it was a '92, but from reading other's numbers, this may be a 1989? My stock pickups didn't have the V7/V8 logos on it.
I'd like to do a JEM project one day, other than the aesthics of the JEM (Monkey grip, claw cavity, vines, etc...) With the Evolution Pickups in my RG570 now, what's the other real differences? I think Steve Vai even put this older Edge trem in his #1 EVO.
