Ahh yes. I, unfortunately, remember that poor Carrera. vomit
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

A good luthier can do a real conversion, but then you have to cut off most of the old headstock and replace it. Usually they'll make a wedged cut above the nut and glue the new HS on. I don't see a good reason to sink that much money into such a thing, a new neck is usually cheaper.
