Is this possible?

I dont mind the bridge on my RG7321, but I have been pondering a way to fit a fixed tone's pro type bridge on it instead. Like the bridge on the Schecter Hellraiser is what I am talking about.

Is this possible?

Certainly possible, two things to consider,

TOM style bridges are generally quite high in comparison to hardtail bridges, and so you may need to recess the TOM into the guitar body to achieve a good action,

The other thing being that you will see the screw holes left by the hardtail bridge, which may or may not bother you.

Thank you. No the hole's won't bother me I could just use some filler when I go to refinish the guitar. As for the TOM style bridge I think I'll just order one an let a shop install it for me.

Also could you reccomend me some locking tuner peg's, I was looking an not sure what to get. I like them on my hellraiser make's changing string's and tuning's a breeze with the string's being locked in.

As far as locking tuners go I prefer Schaller Mini's.
