    What would be your "labor" quote on installing a Floyd Rose Tremolo and locking nut, on a new US Strat that had the standard bridge/trem? Including full disassembly and reassembly with setup.

    I quote $350. Could be a little less, but usually that's close to spot-on for me.

    Mikey, just out of curiosity, what would you charge just to route for the trem? And how about for a floyd nut shelf route? Thanks!

    ~$120ish for the Floyd route and ~$40ish for the nut route if the parts are stripped bare and returned bare.
