I've heard SG's are too thin for a floyd rose. What is a double-locking tremolo system that is compatible with an SG? I've heard some say a Kahler and some an Ibanez ZR. Anyone know one that would work?
(it CAN be a dive-only trem)

dont think its too thin since they did it

I have seen this guitar before but the I don't know about it, the floyd is liscensed and I don't know how well it would work. I have a guitar with a lisecensed floyd that will go out of tune with only a slight nudge so the trem is useless.

ESP make an SG with a floyd rose.

A kahler would definatly work, not as much routing needed, so the body need not be so thick.
And somewhere must have locking nuts which would fit the nut width.

Get one with a shorter block, it doesn't need the same depth as a normal Floyd

Correct. You can do it, just be sure to use the 32mm sustain block.

Just get a Kahler, so you don't have to rape your guitar.

If nothing else works, there's allways bigsby... they look awsome on SG and gives you more sustain...

The only problem with the Bigsby, is that it will not stay in tune with any kind of use.

I don't want a Bigsby, they have lower-range, bad tuning stability and they don't look good(my opinion)

won't a shorter block cause loss of sustain and tone,?

What kind of Kahler would work? a Hybrid 7200 works on a les paul so maybe....

I'm assuming you are referring to ESP's Travis Miguel Signature Viper? yeah, it's pretty pricey but so is a Gibson SG, but I was thinking of an epiphone.
So what about vipers? Would they fit a floyd easier or is it about the same.

I think he means you can get one, if you order a custom one. Really if you want to do it cheap I'd go with the Epi and the Kahler, I havn't played on one, but I have heard good things about them, and if your really worried about loss of tone with the Floyd than wouldn't the best solution be to not remove so much wood in the first place?

apparently UG's only type O-

Well, if it's a 32 mm and it's in the guitar body, it should be the same in terms of block to body ratio in thickness really.

okay, but a kahler still sounds easier, less wood to destroy.

For what its worth to you thought, they don't have the range of a Floyd or or stay in tune as well, plus they are generally a pain in the ass to work on.
