    Yes! All you need to do is remove the trem, cut blocks of wood to fill in the routing done for the trem cavity, use epoxy to fill any gaps, sand it all flat, refinish the guitar (something opaque probably would be best), and then drill new holes for the new bridge. Here are some pics of the process.

    Keep us posted on Modified Monday... this sounds like a fun project.

    Is there anyway for updating the Bridge of the SE without having to do surgery? :D
