    I'm confused.
    You bought a neck without a neck?
    There's a neck in the photo. There's a body in the photo.

    The floyd rose makes no changes in the required number of frets as long as you are not relocating it to a non-standard strat scale length.

    Measure from the tremelo side of the nut to the where the string contacts the D saddle. If it is 25.5 inches it is a standard strat scale. If that is the case you can just use the strat neck you have and install a locking nut on it.

    My personal experience with floyds, get a good quality standard trem and locking tuners and don't bother. People get sick of having to mess with floyds after a bit on string changes.

    Yes - locking tuners are the way to go - with or without a FR trem. The Original FR is better precision IMO.

    I cannot tell from the picture if that Floyd is recessed or not. If it is I do not know if it can be readily swapped out with a good standard trem. I did take a look at those tuning machines in that link you posted. The picture does not match the description. Replacement necks come with and without the locater holes drilled. That is the hole where the little wood screw goes in to keep the tuner from twisting. Make sure you match the hole and the neck. Many tuners now use 2 pins under the body of the tuner.

    That is a kewl paint job.
