Replacing the bridge of a RG 7321? Is Piezo a possibility?

Well I've always wanted a Piezo bridge in an electric but never found one. It was always acoustic or electric bass bridges with piezo pickups. But since I'm selling my 6 and sticking with the 7 string, I really really want to find a piezo bridge for it just for how kick ass it would be. Are they even made in a hard tail version?

I have shed loads, but they don't really add anything to the sevenstring.org thread. If there was anything specific though I'd happily add it.

It was suggested to me to not bother with modifying this guitar as it is a "lower end" guitar and that I should wait and get something better to do it with. I might just wait but I'll be damned if I'm not going to be able to split coils. Yeah, I know I ruined my 777 post count :P.

Complete horse-feces. The RG7321 is one of the best bang-for-your-buck guitars out there, and can hold its own against much more expensive guitars as soon as you pop a pair of new pickups in there.
As far as the subject goes, there was a guy at sevenstring.org who made a complete illustrated tutorial on how to put a piezos in an RG7321. You might wanna check there!

I disagree with whoever told you that. The 7321 is the perfect guitar for mods. Inexpensive, but the basic quality is good. Nothing wrong with it.

Well I found out that I'm gonna need that D Sonic as I've tuned down to drop G on my 6 string last night and found use for it.Too bad it was about a 56 and not a 70 (as is on the 7 string right now).
