ZR trem in a strat body?
Any chance of routing a guitarfetish.com strat body (Fender spec I believe) out for an Ibanez ZR tremolo? I LOVE these things, THE greatest tremolos of all I've tried ...so naturally the idea of fitting this complex setup into a strat body occured to me. I know the top would have to be routed for the recessed way the ZR sits in the body..possible, but don't know if that whole backside piece would fit in a standard stratocaster cutout or if that too would need routing. ...This is probably a longshot to make work doing it myself since I'm not a luthier, but the thought of a strat with this bridge is so enticing I had to ask...I've seen the trem systems go for just $200 or so..sometimes cheaper used...Any thoughts?
