Replacing Edge Zero Tremolo help

Hello, I'm planning to buy a brand new RG3570Z since i love it's blue color so much, but the yellow pickups and selectors don't look good for me, I guess that's not a problem to get them replaced. However, thinkin about replacing the Edge Zero bridge w/ZPS3 the guitar comes with with the original Edge tremolo (model 2ED1R31K cosmo black) is something i really don't know if it can be done to look and work like factory made, I mean there's something called routing for these cases (if I'm not wrong), but if the guitar needs it I'm afraid there's a chance (even if it's small) for the guitar to get damaged permanently or something like that. Can anyone tell me if this is really possible without having a chance of failing in the process or after some years of playing?

If I'm not mistaken the body would need rerouted to fit the original edge. I believe the stud spacing is also different so you'd have to fill the stud holes and redrill them in the correct location. Not a project that will leave the finish of the guitar undamaged.

The Edge Zero bridge is very nice. It just gets a lot of bad rap from the older players who hate anything new. If you're worried about the ZPS3, it comes out very easily (it's made to go in and out without any tools), and you'll have a full floating guitar. I'd say get the guitar and keep it in there. I would change out all that awful yellow though.
