Putting a floyd into American Std Strat Trem...
Been a long time, good to see the community is as strong as ever.
So...my main axe is an 02 American Standard Strat with tremolo, which I never use because it is not stable enough for the stuff I want to use it for (you know, the Van Halen, Vai-esque stuff). The more I've thought about it, the more Im thinking of throwing a floyd in it. I put locking tuners on it and they work very well, so i don't think I would be using a floyd locking nut. The guitar looks like a million bucks, sounds awesome, is a great player and is super responsive, I think a floyd would only enhance it. My questions are....
1) Who else has done this themself, and how much of a pain was it? I used to do tech stuff at a guitar store for a while so Im not a fool and know how to setup my guitar perfectly to my liking, but by no means know how to do everything.
2) To all that have done this operation, how happy were/are you?
Thanks all and hear from ya soon!!
