i have a schecter omen 6 guitar and a 1970 ibanez les paul. I've always wanted a tremolo, but i dont want to shell out on another guitar when i already have a decent one.

I had the idea of getting a luthier to router and install a floyd rose tremolo system on my schecter (has a TOM bridge and strings are through-body), but i don't know how much it costs.

Also, if that isn't really a good idea, would putting a stetsbar my les paul be ok? I play alot of metallica and van halen type stuff so i dont know what to get.

Cost is my issue. Thanks
your latter idea is appalling

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
