Wood would be taken out of a guitar to convert it from hardtail to a double-locking trem system, such as a Floyd Rose? Would it kill tone?

Some advice if your thinking about actually doing it: Sell your guitar and buy a new one

Well, I think you have to have a thicker guitar, like 1 and 3/4" I do believe for a floyd. I think there are some dimensions out there if somebody would post them instead of persuading you to buy another guitar because they don't know the answer.

It won't kill tone, look how many great sounding guitars have Floyd Roses on them...

if you don't want to do to much routing get a kahler. then you won't to have to route the back
also its not true about kahlers not being good. my dad has an esp/ltd jeff hanneman 200 with a kahler and it dominates my floyd rose any day.

wrong many people are suggesting a new guitar because of how much money it would cost to have a floyed put in
also it would kill the tone a bit
thoose great guitars with floyds were designed to have a floyd they are ment to sound that way
