Ok guy's i want to know if this could be done.

Ok so im sitting around during spring break playing my Gibson SG and Started thinking how i could expand my musical boundaries if i had a floating tremolo in my SG. And then i started searching on the internet if Gibson has expirimented in the past trying to put a floating trem in a SG and i found nothing .So i started thinking Why the Hell hasnt Gibson tried this . i mean if they can sit around for a year or so thinking up the Firebird X they can put a Floyd Rose, Kahler,etc. in a SG. They made the LP Axcess which is a great guitar but im not a very big LP person.

1.I know one major thing is that the SG body is very thin compared to a LP.
2. A floyd or somthing could effect the performance of a thin ,lightweight Guitar like a SG.


So UG Could this Be Done.

People have had Floyd's installed on SG's so it is possible.



May i point out one thing. Thats a Epiphone not a Gibson. i Compared my Gibson to my old ass Epi Sg and the epi is thicker and heavier than the my Gibson's Body . So im talking About "Gibsons"

I think regular SGs are too thin to add a trem like that to it, but you could toss a bigsby on that thing, or an old school maestro trem.
no sir away a papaya war is on

A kahler doesn't require too much wood to be routed, so that might work better than a Floyd... I don't even know if a Floyd would work on a "thin" SG. Of course, that's if you're looking towards a locking trem. Otherwise, a Bigsby is probably your best bet. The maestro looks cool, but tuning isn't very stable with it, so...
Wine is fine but whiskey's quicker!

You could sand off the body, add a thick cap to it and route through that if you're really set on a FR.

Kahler. FR's are too long.

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.

What about the original type of trem??

Washburn Wonderbar - no routing required - , or shorten the block on your floyd/ leave it proud of the body depending on the string height at the bridge.
yeah I said it. What.

So in the end, be careful, but even still it's not THAT easy to get killed to death.

With enough string tension, it would be easy enough to machine the block to a shorter length and still have a perfectly functioning FR.
So yes, it can be done!
