Dean did as well. I think it was called the deceiver f. ESP eclipse had an option for a floyd. Same with the carvin single cut, you could order a Floyd.

Price range? Kiesel, but you'll pay a pretty penny.

Pretty much any luthier could build or modify one for a FR.

You could add a Floyd frx trem to basically any tom style les Paul. I've never used the frx, but it looks interesting; expensive as well.

I've never heard of them, but there is also a company called Wolf. There are quite a few on ebay.

Agile 1000
Fernandes Monterey
Godin

Or grab a custom body from Warmoth.

Also, although probably impossible to find, schaller made a Floyd Rose that bolted to the guitar posts, only modification is to replace your nut with the locking nut.

Forgot about those! Jeff Waters has those installed on all his guitars. He seems to like them.

Friends don't let friends bore holes through the middle of Les Pauls. Not for smoke bombs, not for laser guns and not for FR's.

And I say that as a fan of Mr Lifeson, probably the largest proponent for FR LPs. They just look wrong to me. But I know some have issues with Bigsbys on LP's, which I think are mahhhhvelous. At least you don't have to bore a hole for one of those.

So I guess that's the long way of saying get one that mounts on existing hardware (no woodworking) or buy an Access, IMO.

I have one of these and quite like it. Quite a good value IMO.
Epiphone Les Paul PRO/FX
I put a Sustainiac pickup in mine and its become a really fun guitar.
