Most people will say it's more effort than it's worth.
Epiphone have released a LP with a floyd already installed, buying that wouldn't be a great deal more than putting one on an existing LP.

I would dig having a bar on my LP, but the last floyd rose I saw n ebay that fits LP wet for over $300, and that was just for the bridge part, plus I doubt I'd ever mount the locking nut on my LP, so I also think it's a wiser choice to go for the epi that has it designed in.

Also probably cheaper still is the Agile LP copy with tremolo, which is a somewhat different beast because it has a bigsby but another option to consider.

Be careful, the purists will be calling for your head!


Installing a Floyd on a LP would be pricey and a pain in the ass. I'm also one of those sick bastards who thought it would be nice to have a LP with one though, so I took a chance on one of these when I saw it on Ebay:

http://www.fernandes.co.jp/burny/rlc...blk_index.html


I found a white one for $900 and totally fell in love with it. I actually sold my Gibson LP Custom and bought a black Burny I found for $825 that has EMG 89's and an upgraded trem bar, I couldn't be happier with both of them. Both are absolutely flawless, the build-quality and playability are outstanding. They show up on Ebay every now and then but you can also order them from Orangeguitar.com for about $870 (as I recall) including shipping to the US:

http://orangeguitar.com/forsale/burnyforsale.htm

Note, the prices listed are in Singapore dollars. Anyway, I think they're outstanding guitars, much better than the Epi's IMO. The stock bridge PU is very good (sounds similar to a JB) and the Sustainer is pretty neat too. The Floyd is licensed but of excellent quality, very similar in design to an Original Floyd.

Here are my babies:

If you are going to get an lp and a floyd thats the way to go.

I guess no one uses the FAQ anymore:

Go and buy a Stetsbar surface mount (non destructive) tremelo unit. Expensive tho, but brilliantly engineered. Won't give you the extremes of up and down movement that a floyd would give you..

don't do it - the loss of tone from the routing is enormous, and you effectively kill the resale value as you go - get an epi or the other thing.
