I absolutely need a floyd rose, like seriously this is a problem, i have a b.c. rich jr v that i just got and i love it, the only thing is that its hardtail! Should i just route it myself and put a good floyd in? Whats the risk factor? The other option is getting a guitar with a floyd, i dont really wanna do that but if i have to do i guess i'll sell this one or something i dont no.

Don't, don't retro a Floyd Rose into a hardtail guitar. If you want an involved project, install a Kahler tremolo. It could still be a fatal mistake if you don't know what you are doing.

he has a B.C. rich jr V.
Omg, you gonna f#ck it up so bad.
First, just save and get a new guitar, putting a tremolo on a B.C. jr V. is gonna jack up so much stuff. Tone, sustain, intonation. Unless your an experienced guitar tech I would not even try it. Not even the Khaler

BC Rich jr V: £380
Schaller Floyd Rose Tremolo Black: £200
Tech costs: I'd say £75-£150
Jackson RX10D- £320. It was the first one I found.

Does it seem worth it to you?

^ yeah, pretty much. something like an ibanez s470 will already have a good floyd, and will likely cost no more than trying to convert your BC rich to a floyd guitar... plus you'll have two guitars, too (which is handy if you have a floyd, so you can utilise different tunings etc.).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

well i already have a fender strat, but its not for that type of stuff i dont want to lower the action or anything, its for blues and softer stuff, the rich is my shred/metal guitar, with the fast neck and 24 frets and low action and hot humbuckers. i'd probably sell it or something if i need to get a new guitar, which seems to be what i should do
