Hey fellas ,

Well , im building a Jem 555 with a body i bought , I was thinking to drop a Edge or an edge pro in there .. and i was wondering if thats possible , since i have NO knowladge about guitar tech besides changing strings pretty much.
Im afraid i dont wana mess it up , or anything!

The edge pro is too expensive for my pocket , so im gona go for a single edge . Another thing , i need to buy some dimarzio pickups , it will be cool if you guys drop me some info about the Evo pickups , and would it be bad if i go an Evo on the neck and a EMG 81 on bridge???


Well any info will be really apreciated!! Thanks in advance!! I ve been reading a lot of stuff the past few days , this community kicks butt!!

The EMG 81 is an active, low impedance pickup, the EVO is a passive, high impedance pickup - there are some complications (for example, from memory the EMG pots are 25K, whereas the standard Ibanez ones will be 250 or 500K) - I suspect they have to have a totally separate signal path until you hit the output socket - anyone else out there confirm this?

Good Luck with the guitar

David

You can stick an Official Floyd Rose in there.
