    To me, it looks like it's set up and routed for a Floyd Rose.

    What's the origin of this body?

    If it is home made, it could be a slightly mis-located attempt at a Floyd.

    Here's praying all the reference points are precisely on.

    Botched Kahler then Floyd do-over, nevermind?

    I'd fill it with molten brass, mill it n drill it for a bridge of appropriate style, also in brass.

    Looks almost like a recessed Wilkinson?

    Maybe an original Floyd without the fine tuners ? Which is actually available again now

    Edit: wait! Wait! Wait! It’s missing the back cavity

    Looks like a Floyd to me, unless it's a 2-point Fender.
