    Default Floyd conversion

    Has anyone taken a strat and converted it to fit a floyd rose? A friend of mine is giving me his strat so I decided I'm going to make it into a project guitar and I'd much rather have a floyd put it in. Just don't know how to go about it or if a guitar repair shop would be able to do it for me. Just curious on the process and what it might cost to do.

    I saved El Jalapeno's step by step on how to install a Floyd a few months ago when he posted that on the old board. He used a strat in his example pics. I still have it, and copied it all into a word.doc

    I'll upload it for you to grab, until El Jalapeno can come along and repost it in a normal post again. The example pics should be imbedded into the doc.

    I also have a guitar that has a floyd on it that was installed by El Jalapeno as well.
