Hey man. I'm currently doing this to a junk ibanez guitar that I got off of eBay. Could you give me a detailed explanation of how you went about cutting the cavity for the Floyd and knowing where to put everything, etc.? Keep in mind that I do not have a router or Floyd Rose rose templates and would prefer not to buy either, if possible. Thanks.

Why does everyone chisel their shit? WTF....there's a thing called "ROUTER". Don't be ghetto folks, use a router!

you can install a floyd rose without routing or cutting into the body,but this wont be a free flouting bridge(pulling up aswell as down on the wammy bar) you need to have a locking nut!! the floyd will never stay in tune with out it.

@guitaristshobi once you put the new strings on the bridge will return back to the normal position. i always replace one string at a time so that doesnt happen, but if you put a piece of cardboard or even an old pick gaurd under the bridge before taking the strings off it stops the bridge from moving.this helps to protect the paint.

@AustinFrestone i use an old bolt with the same thread as the post, i screw the bolt all the way in and put the claw end of a hammer under the head of the bolt.then i slowly and very carfully pry the bolt and post straight out. be sure to put a wooden block under the hammer to protect the guitar body.

@ZACWOLFRE721 the only reason for cuting into the body is to make the bridge free flouting,that means you can pull back on the floyd as well as down.i dont use templates i just measure very carefully what i need to do.if the old bridge is not a floyd rose the post might not be in the same position. hope this helps john

@igouroum the floyd should fit without routing, but you do need to drill holes for the new post.
