Like others have mentioned, the gotoh Floyd... The ge1996t is a drop in fit, but only if you use 10 gauge strings. If you use 9's then the cavity doesn't allow enough space to intonate properly. I have a js100 I put a custom neck on and a gotoh Floyd. I use 9's so I used a rotary tool to extend the cavity a bit. Plus the gotoh is around $110-$135 US on eBay. It doesn't come with a new locking nut. It has a 16 inch radius, so depending on your neck, you may need shim for the saddles to match your neck radius.

The close up pic of the bridge was when the guitar had 10's. You can see the clearance the Allen screws have. It just fits but works.
