This idea is fairly nuts, but I'm aware of that; no reason to protest my motives or be condescending. I have a crappy Douglas Scope 7 string from rondo that I scalloped the fretboard on a long time ago. It's sort of a project guitar, really, and I somehow got it in my head that if I could just get this bridge 7 String Guitar Headless System > Store > Hipshot Products to replace the floyd rose then I could hold the strings down at the neck with the locking floyd rose nut and have a headless guitar. (This obviously entails sawing the headstock off) Here is a link to the guitar that I'm modifying Douglas Scope 725 Nat Ash 7 String Guitar Natural - RondoMusic.com I'm pretty positive that as long as I can properly fit the hipshot bridge onto the guitar then it should work, but my question is, will it be possible to fit this bridge given that the guitar has been routed for a floyd rose? I can't seem to get a good look at the hipshot bridge from the pics, and I can't see any holes or poles where it would mount into the wood. I'm positive that it would require some drilling, which I'm prepared for as well as cutting the body down to make it smaller just for fun. Anyone know anything about this? I never use this guitar and the resale value is already close to nothing because of the scalloped fretboard and ghetto rigged floyd. (went through hell just to get it firmly blocked off) It would be nice to turn this into a usable guitar and would be a lot of fun to tinker with. Anyone who has any idea how headless bridges are fit and has knowledge or experience on fitting fixed bridges should pipe up right away because I'm insanely curious.
