    Hi! I'm thinking of acquiring a guitar with the Double Edge bridge. As far as I know, there is a piezo connector (multiplexer?) attached to the trem block with two screws. I personally think every trem-equipped Ibanez benefits somewhat from a large brass block, so I thought to ask if anyone has tried to swap theirs?

    You can do it. The user SlipknotKornFan has done to his RG2027X. Just replace the block and then use electrical tape to grab the piezo summing board to it. Easy doing, but be careful with those piezo wires not to break, or you'll be in the soldering business also and in a tight position.

    Alright that is great news! I don't really crank the trem a whole lot so taping it up probably works just fine for me. Thanks :)

    Don't go shy on the taping and you'll be able to dive and squeal as those trems were meant to.
