I recently bought a new 1 peice body off ebay and have just had it painted. Will the body need modding to fit in the floyd rose trem ? And is it all that difficult ? Thanks in advance
If it is routed for a standard strat trem, then yes. If you want it recessed then definitely. I'm not too sure about flush mounted ones though...
Yes, to do it properly it will need modding. You could mount it flush on top of the strat temolo hole and just drill the two anchors in. You'd have to fill the holes from the strat trem. Problem with flush mount is it can only dive bomb... there's no pulling back on the whammy, which sucks for a floyd rose.

You should've routed a FR pocket in the top of the body before having it painted.
