A few shots of the body and the process to get to the final body. Prob some inaccuracies but hey ho!
I've tried to show this as a mix of traditional techniques and cnc combined.

Hello Daniel
take a look at this video
By the way I love the color of that Light burst guitar
Interesting. Definitely easier than building a specific guitar just to have a Floyd

Yes
This type of tremolo is designed to be installed on the same posts of a tune or matic bridge and the posts of the tailpiece and the nut safety are installed by removing the nut and screwing it in the same holes of the truss rod cover, being able to use without affecting invasively the integrity of your guitar and whenever you want you can remove it and replace your tune o matic bridge
