after i get a car im probably going to get a MIM strat [the car probably wont come til summer-ish] and i played an HSS and fell in love with it..

and chance i can get a blue or red HSS and slap a black pickguard on it?, i love how it looks..

also if i got locking tuners would the trem be able to do the crazy stuff?

also, what else are my options?

max budget $400

Sure, why wouldn't you be able to do it?

Putting locking tuners on will just help keep it in tune, it doesn't turn the vintage trem into a floyd.

If it's made for a strat, yeah. But if you want a floyd rose, you should go with the super vee trem system.

how hard would it be to install?

also, how good is tremking or whatever

you could do some tricks without detune your guitar with locking tuners
but you cant use like a floyd (with extreme tricks)
Hola.

you could do whatever you like to it, plus strats are like the sickest guitars for modding so you could do a ****load to it, personally, id put locking tuners and keep it like that, as the bridge is relitavely decent on MIM strats

They are inconsistant. And the tremolo block sucks.

If you want a floyd type bridge look at an Ibanez RG or something like that.

what would be the best guitar for me?

recommend some for me to try out please

want a floyd style bridge, 24 frets [both not completely necessary but really like], humbucker in the bridge, like superstrat shapes, explorer shapes, V shapes, LP shapes
