hey guysss

i was talking to a mate of mine who mods guitars recently and thought it would be cool to have a go at modding my squier strat.

its a cheap guitar so i dont mind too much if i mess it up, but i dont really know what to do ;D

im buying some books on wiring/soldering and stuff like that

but i want to know what tools i need for fitting a floyd rose bridge to a strat?

apparently i will need to route the bridge cavity, but what do i need to do that?


help appreciated!

thanks

i think i'll try doing it with a chisel and sandpaper...

im gonna get the router template from somewhere

is there any reason i would need a router?
they are pricey...
and i dont think i'll be using it that often...

Haha that'll be strainge a FR on a squire strat :P
Your bridge'll be worth more than the guitar

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.

well it plays quite nicely, i've sanded the neck a bit, just need to finish it, and it will be quite nice tbh

it'll be worth it in the end

I mean I'm laughing at you putting a FR in a Squier. But no biggy. I tried to put a FR on an Ibanez RG 120, but I failed. Hope you have better luck in your exploits.
