Worth it for modding? (Piezo tremolo)

Ok at my local store there's an fender strat, mim, for 299$ish (USD). It has a piezo tremolo that doesn't work and the headstock has had the **** beat out of it, but it plays fantastically. The pickups are kinda... iffy sounding. I'm wondering how easy it would be for me to replace the bridge that doesn't would (when you flip it on all sound dies, and it gives some kinda massive burp kinda sound when touched the wrong way).

It might be the Xbridge LR makes, I'm not sure. I remember seeing an advertisement for a bridge that looked exactly like it in some Guitar world, but I don't remember anything about it.

I'm just wondering if you guys know of any that pull up. It never says on the sites whether they do or not.
