^My thought too. Either that or waiting for some originals on the bay/Reverb shrug .
Practice cures most tone issues.

Alright, just checked mine and they are indeed 6-hole, not 4...

Drilling is easy with those, but make sure to use the flat drill tips as used for wood, not the regular beveled ones.

Drill. Done.
But if it's a question of authenticity or if your OCD will allow it....well.... :whistle
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

The real ones have a chunky backing bit to the hole area to keep it from cracking. if you drill you're sure to cause some cracking.

Not really if you're careful, because the springs will support the plastic on one side. As long as you're not pressing down on the pickups it is fine...

Should not crack, just don't handle it like a buffoon...
