Only the Ibanez guitars with a Double-Edge piezo bridge. But that's not technically an acoustic guitar, it just sounds like one.

Supposedly Ovation made a couple of Floyd Rose-equipped guitars for Richie Sambora back in the day. I don't know if they saw the light of day or even survived.

A floating trem on an acoustic just strikes me as something that would be very high on a list of Very Bad Ideas.

Already the though seems to be a very bad idea IMHO .

Not sure if it's actually a floating trem, but both Ibanez and Peavey have made acoustic guitars with tremolo function.

Rich Lasner (of late '80's Ibanez R&D fame) designed the one for Peavey. I think it was called "Ecoustic" or something corny like that. He admitted it would be misunderstood and chastised. At the NAMM show he was having country guys demo it and they were doing pedal steel type stuff, and showing how it wasn't trying to be a shred tool. But it is such a mechanical device, that the acoustic sound suffered greatly. So the double edge, or some piezo fitted trem mounted on an electric would probably sound just as realistic.
