hey im just wondering if i can put a floyd rose on a tele without doing any major modifications like drilling and routing im about to get a fender american tele and i want a trem , thanks in advance

It's totally possible, it will take some measuring and somewhat accurate woodwork. If I remember right there's one in the video for Bon Jovi's Runaway. I don't think a trem will complement the sound of a Tele very well at all. Of course, I'm not a big fan of Tele's...

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

It will kill the little sustain Tele's already have.

floyd = less sustaion
bigsby = more tone, more sustain

^ I believe that was a Kramer tele. It was HSS with a slanted humbucker, right?

Yeah ive seen those kramers... its not exactly a traditional tele, just the same body shape. If you want a trem choose a different guitar, or get a custom built tele body routed for trem etc, and get a tele neck.
