    - it isn't the right scale
    - it isn't designed for the tuning they use
    - it doesn't have fanned frets
    -...

    Looking at the guitar you have, it looks like there is finish missing in circles around the screw holes under the plate? Maybe it was a prototype for a no neck-plate joint like you see on Ibanez...

    An electronics replacement is not a standard service item that a guitar would need, even after years, unless you sweat a ton all over the guitar.

    I don't get why everyone has this idea of "modernity" about headless instruments. They came out of the late 70s - early 80s. There's nothing new about them, or modern.

    Yes! Lets ruin the iconic head stock and bridge to install a headless system that may require special strings, have issues with set screws stripping, and supplier issues.

    I have seen cracks and other issues guitars that use the "bolt through" design of the Floyd Rose locking nut. It also removes quite a bit of wood from a weak spot already compromised by a truss rod...

    Well, I know that the Luke III trem doesn't have adjustable posts. Why would they tilt the bridge upward if they could just raise the bridge plate a little to get some "up" bend room?
