    hello from Florida. I just added this Deluxe Roadhouse strat. Locking Tuners, noiseless pups and on board v6 preamp. Lots of tone possibilities. I am thinking of converting to a hardtail. Are there hardtail bridges that are direct replacements. I can always block it off but would rather make an upgrade to the bridge. Great to be here 79A1D66D-583B-4EA1-BE4A-6DDDDA70E12D.jpeg

    Ooh! Very nice!

    I grew up and lived in Jacksonville for most of my life.

    Well hello there, I used to live in Coral Springs for about a year back in the late 80's.

    Welcome to the forum! Good on you for posting pics - admission fee PAID;)

    I am unaware of any easy way to convert your bridge to hardatail. My advice - save some $$$ and have a professional do the job or block it and use the $$$ on gear:sneaky:

    Greetings Mspin. Nice guitar. I had a '97 MIA Roadhouse Strat at one time, but it had different specs than your model....basically an American Standard with Texas Specials and a fancy pickguard. I'm in East Central Florida...Melbourne area.
