I've been saving gor a guitar, and I really like the ESP LTD EX401DX - trans blk finish, FR... But the Clockwork Zombie graphic model caught my eye as well. That has 22 and no FR, though. Is it even possible to ADD frets to it so it's 24 and put a FR on it? If so, would that take a ridiculous amount of time & money?

yes it would. adding frets would involve a new neck, and adding a floyd rose involves cutting out a massive hole in the guitar's body. just get the one without the clock graphics, you'll be better off.

1) There is no way in hell you'll manage to do this yourself without some wood working experience. Rule of thumb: If you have to ask whether you can do it, the answer is usually "no".

2) Getting it done by a pro will be more expensive than the guitar itself. For additional frets, you'd need to swap the entire neck or at least fretboard and the neck pup might get in the way of a longer fretboard, so you'd have to relocate it, too. Putting in a Floyd means lots and lots of routing which is time consuming and therefore expensive.

2) Don't buy a guitar for it's looks. Get the best sounding, best playing one in your price range and you'll be happier in the long run.

... You... Said "2" twice...?
Whatever, just wonderin', thought the graphics were pretty metal and I want an FR.

Thanks.

If it's a bolt on then it's not too much trouble because you can buy a new neck and replace it & the FR would be a case of taking it to a tech/a shop and letting them get on with it.

Although tbh, it's probably going to cost you a hell of a lot more.

It would be about the equivilent to buying and installing parts to get a susuki to the specs of a lamborgini.

It is going to be a major headache and a serious amount of cash, so I would advise against it. The location of the neck pickup on your guitar might make extending the fretboard by two frets difficult or even impossible (there might not be enough room). Routing a non-tremolo guitar for a tremolo unit - particularly a Floyd Rose - involves cutting out a lot of wood, which means many man-hours from your guitar tech = big bucks. If you want a 24-fret guitar with a Floyd, get a 24-fret guitar with a Floyd. Modifications should be pursued sparingly.

i'd say it'd be cheaper to get one with 24frets and a FR and then have it custom painted.
