Piezo in a RG1520

I love Piezos, but found out that you can't buy an aftermarket Floyd Rose styled piezo. I know that its possible to get a piezo in a Floyd Rose (Case and point being RG1820x) and really would like one. I was wondering if its possible to actually buy a bridge and fit piezo saddles to it.

Does anyone know anything about buying a FR style piezo bridge, or modding a piezo bridge to a piezo?

I don't know about the piezo's, but I'd love to be able to get an RG1520 here in the states. I have an RG520 which is close enough.

Ibanez just doesn't send them to the states is all. You can't get the 1550 either.

Re: Piezo in a RG1520

Based on your other post it appears you have a 1570, which I can get all day here in to pretty sweet colors. A 1520 has two humbuckers with no single coil between them. Here's my RG520, which is pretty much the same...
