EMG DG20's - Floyd Rose

Hey guys,

I own a cheap strat and I want to try to improve it to the max. So I was thinking of putting a floyd rose in instead of the cheap bridge that came with it, and plant some EMG DG20 pickups.
My only problem is I dont know it the DG20's pickguard will let me fit a floyd rose in there.
Any help?
I want to figger this out before I buy the gear and then watch it fail so please help.

IIRC the Floyd route is bigger than the standard 6 point tremolos. You'll probably have to cut a bit off the pickguard to fit it.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

It won't fit. Additionally, it is cheaper to buy the pickups and EQ controls separately and simply fit them to your current pickguard, rather than paying the inflated price for a pre-loaded set in a box with David Gilmour's photo printed on it.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
