Thinking about installing a Floyd Rose bridge on my Gibson SG and i was wondering if and in that case what kind of effects it will have on the original tone of the guitar? Also,what bridge model would be best for the kind of music i play,mostly trash/classic heavy metal,and,last but not least, what would this approximately cost if i brought it to a proffesional guitar builder? (Not so sure about doing it myself since im not very handy when it comes to this kind of stuff :p )

i cant chime in much but i know most the time you cant put a standard floyd in a sg due to the body being too thin.

a floyd would also kill alot of that nice neck-through/set neck (i forgot) sustain.


not to be a ass but in my short life here ive seen atleast 5 different threads on sgs with floyd, PLEASE use the searchbar.

some sg's are bolt-on.

The body is waaaaaaayyy too thin to take the roues of a floyd try a Bigsby, stetsbar, Vibrola, or a Kahler (although LP despises them)

Yes.

There aren't a whole lot of factory neckthroughs. THe Gibson firebird is, and so are a lot of ibanez's, those are the only that spring to mind right now.
