Switching fixed7-bridge on RG7321 to a Floyd Rose?

Since i'm planning to buy the RG7321, which obviously has a fixed bridge, i was perhaps wondering if it would be possible (And affordable) to switch the bridge for a Floyd Rose. The questions here are: what would that kind of an operation cost me? (Mounting and everything included...) Would it be worth it? (Since the cheapest 7-string guitar with Floyd Rose here in sweden lands in at about 1100Ä) And is it possible at all?

Thanks in advance for the advices.

Anything is possible, but in my opinion, you would be MUCH better off buying a used RG7620 off eBay and having it shipped to Sweden than cutting big holes in a 7321.

I did a quick Web search and came up with prices of USD$140 to $180 for a recessed Floyd Rose installation. You might have to pay extra for a 7-string since jigs and/or templates are less common (or nonexistant). And you have to pay for the trem itself on top of that.

As mentioned before = Cheapest 7-string Floyd Roser from Ibanez ~1100Ä. (RG1527 or something like that) Trust me, i've checked it. (Crafton-catalogue. Official Ibanez-dealer in Sweden.)
