hi, i am in a metal band and i use a jackson. My band is tryin to cover more Slayer,Pantera,Shadows Fall,Etc... bands that use floyd rose and wammy bars. My guitar is perfet for me except for the fact i dont have a floyd rose. How much would it cost for me to get a floyd custom built into my guitar.

You are better off selling that guitar and buying another soloist with a floyd in it. Costs to get a floyd installed are really high and tune-o-matic guitars aren't made for floyds. You're gonna have to have a huge hole drilled in your guitar, neck adjusted ect.

Waste of time and money to get a floyd installed...

Sorry I wasnt much help was I?

but i like everything on the guitar.. neck,pickups,color.. like how much would it cost just to get a floyd installed? $500?


Honestly I don't know how much. But good luck finding someone that will do that first of all. Ask around, someone here should know. But i'd say around $300-500

EDIT: Get an Original Floyd Rose sine those bands do some crazy whammy stuff. One of those cheap knockoffs would probably break sooner or later.

So it'd cost him about $300 for the floyd and $500 for the fitting, just get another guitar and put EMGs in it I know a lot of jacksons like that have floyds.

500 for the installation, to do it professionally you have lot of routing to do, takes alot of time and effort. plus a OFR costs around 200 with taxes.
