ZR tremolo with locking tuners, no locking nut?

Hi, I am a new member in your site and an owner of an ibanez S1675 prestige. Recently I started making a few changes on my guitar and I was wondering if I could install locking tuners on the super wizard neck and get rid of the locking nut. Would something like that be possible? Anybody done it?

sure it would. just do it. put some locking tuners in there but don't replace the nut, just get rid of the locking pads, pretty much à la Paul Gilbert. then don't forget to stretch your strings completely before you test the arm.

the Vinnie Moore model was lacking of the locking nut too, and it had locking tuners with an Edge-II trem.
