Question about Licensed Floyd Roses

I was at this guitar store yesterday and I found this guitar which is made by a company that I've never heard of. It had a JS-like body, 24-fret neck, H-S-H pickup config, and a Licensed Floyd Rose. The guitar is pretty lightweight and it plays almost as well as my RGs, but the licensed floyd rose could be in better condition. My question is: are all licensed floyd roses the same dimensions as an original floyd rose and will I be able to retrofit without any modifications? I'm thinking that I might be able to snag the guitar for a decent price, but if I can't upgrade the bridge then it's not really worth it.

If you are going to get a licenced Floyd I'd recommend getting the GOTOH Floyd Rose bridge. Pricier than the other licenced copies but cheaper than the OFR. Probably a better bridge too. Any OFR copy should fit though.

Re: Question about Licensed Floyd Roses

Cool, thanks for the info. I'm going to go have another look at that guitar and see how much the guy really wants for it. If I can swing it for about $200 then I may just buy it and block the trem initially so that it's not an issue. I am very glad to hear that it will be a direct replacement if I want to go with either the GOTOH Floyd Rose or the Original.
