    Don't mean to sound so uninformed, but I'm kinda new at this. Could anyone explain how easy/hard it would be to replace the bridge tailpiece with a Floyd Rose tremolo? Any info would be appreciated.

    If there's a peavey trem in there now, just measure up the pivot holes on the floyd and see if they line up with the knife edges of the floyd.
    If they do you can replace it and set it up your self or have a store tech do it.
    If it's a hard tail then get your wallet out because there's some serious routing to do.
    It's not something you'd want to try yourself.
    Although a few of us on here can, and have routed and installed these, the only one here who I'd trust to do it for others is Rols.
    If you're not accustomed to doing something like installing a floyd, don't even attempt it on a new guitar. Get it done right.

    Word. There is quite a bit of wood to remove, and unless you have any POS's lying around to work on first, best to let it go to the professionals. Of course, a real Floyd is gonna cost you around $200ish, and the install will be probably close to that because there is so much wood to remove. Prages put it best when he said to save up for a Wolf with the Floyd already installed [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
