Depending on where the chambers are in the body, it might be impossible. You could do it if the chambers would not interfere with the area which needs to be routed for the floyd and trem springs. It would certainly require a lot of routing. If you want a locking nut, that will mean modifying the neck.
Honestly, I would build one from scratch if it were me.

Okay, so a floating bridge isn't possible.
What about a Strat-style tremolo?

This.

A strat-style trem would probably be possible, but you're still going to have to route your guitar for it.

Also, to prevent future embarassment, it's a Tune-O-Matic bridge, not an Adjusto-matic.

Edit: My bad, I just followed the link, it's an Adjusto-matic. Sowwy.

A floyd wouldn't be that much harder than a Strat trem. Sure the Floyd requires more routing behind the bridge, but the main problem is going to be where the chambers are (since it is a semi-hollow guitar) and both of those styles are about the same width.
A Floyd may be possible -- if there is a wide enough solid piece down the middle of the body. But I am not sure how this particular model is constructed, so I cannot say definitively.
You could easily add a Bigsby, but that won't get you as much pitch change as either of the aforementioned trems.

Do you think a guitar shop would do that?

It depends on where the chambers are.
A floyd is completely possible, check where exactly the hollow chambers in the body are.

I don't know how much range you get out of it, and it might not fit, but the Stetsbar they make to fit TOM's without any extra routing might work.

They make a Tele style too, it would fit.

Yeah, the Stop-Tail Stretsbar will fit. Thanks guys!

yeah, but they'd probbly rape you with the price.

or you could try a bigsby, they're easy to install, cost less than a stetsbar, and a bigsby looks better on a tele IMHO.

+1 to the bigsby.

I ran over to L&M and played a guitar with a bigsby and I found the range very limited, I think I'll go with the Stretsbar. I agree that the bigsby looks better though.

are you sure it was a bigsby? because there are bigsby ripoffs.

and the range isnt that limited, infact, you can push down AND pull up.
but hey, its up to you.

Yeah, it was a Bigsby guitar with a Bigsby bridge...
And uhhh, you can push down AND pull up even further with a Stretsbar.
