I have a Squier Tele custom I obtained for dirt cheap.
I tried searching the forums to see if the question had been asked already but had no luck.
My question is, is there any way to put a floyd tremolo on there?
Or any floating type of tremolo, and how much would it set me back? (Including average installation rate.)
I appreciate the help.

it would cost more than it is worth..... you would be better off selling that guitar... and saving the money you were going to put into it to just buy one with a licensed floyd... though an actual floyd has much more quality

with the cost of the trem... and the instillation... easily around 200 bucks

I depends on what tools you have and how much you wanna spend on the floyd...
I've seen floyds on ebay for $30, although they are cheap and don't keep in tune as much as an original. If you wanna go all out, get an original, schaller or gotoh. Or you could get cheaper versions. Theres a list of them in said thread below...

Thanks for all the feedback guys.
If I do modify it I'll be sure to post the end result.
