I would probably stick with 45 degree edges on the Stage Customs though. (I'm pretty sure all the SC models are 45 degrees?) If Yamaha had thought they sounded better with 30 degree edges, they would've used that.Thank you. I am kind of surprised by that. Interesting decision to be made on what I do....
I am leaning that way as well. I don't have any issues with the sound. I have heard several examples that sounded stellar. Probably best not to introduce new variables. There are enough already in the recutting process, selecting someone to do it etc. I want to have a word with one more place but precision drum is probably the leader in the clubhouseI would probably stick with 45 degree edges on the Stage Customs though.

The Recording Customs are a different animal...with heavy hardware and a different source for Birch wood.
If you're looking to change the character of your Stage Customs, you might as well try something new in the bearing edge department. Keep in mind if you go with anything too different from the existing edges you'll lose a little more depth.What kind of bearing edges are on the Recording custom kits? Standard 45 w/ back cut? I am getting my stage customs leveledand cut. I might as well consider my options if I am going there.
The new ones are 30 degrees, but measured from the other side. They're not like the Gretsch 30 degrees. More like 60 degrees if measured like Gretsch. They are VERY sharp. You could shave with the new RCs.Recording Customs are 30 degrees according to the specs page.
