I am just trying to build a custom guitar for my intermidiate playing but want it to be perfect. So i am looking at a mahogany body guitar which is perfect except for the fact that it has a stick bridge and the strings go into the guitar... I hate that. I really need a floyd rose, but is it possible i can just slap one on there. My other friends say that one i would have to pay for it to be done because its messing with the sweet spot on the guitar. Is it worth it? I just really like the natural dark wood bodies and a floyd rose. And if there is even a guitar like this can you point me towards it. (Sorry for the bad grammar it early)

Retro fitting a Floyd Rose is entirely doable, but yes it will cost you to get it done professionally unless you happen to have a pretty good idea of what you're doing.

Yes there are already guitars like that. That's not really a lot of requirements you have there

I can't think of any though, I'm not really up to date in the guitar world. Somebody will come along and show you some though I'm sure

Loads of manufacturers make mahogany with fr style bridges, PRS I'm sure there's some ibanez', ESP, just go on google. Check out the charvel desolation range.

just remember that not all guitars that are claimed to be made of mahogany are made from the mahogany that guitarist lust after. There are many species of wood that are given the name "mahogany" when it suits

I can't comment on the quality of mahogany, nor have I played one, but to me, this has always looked like a neat guitar that has mahog and an OFR: http://www.custom77.com/html/The_Watcher___Floyd_Rose___DL4-596-prd.html
Or, for something more mainstream, there's the super expensive Gibson SG Diablo Tremolo:
