Does anybody know if any companies like musikraft or warmoth offer a recessed gotoh floyd rose route?

i think the gotoh outline is close to the same as a regular floyd rose original.

Yes but the string lock bolts are longer and the post holes are a larger diameter .
You can get around it by using OFR bolts and studs, then it is a direct fit. BUT the gotoh parts are better quality, particularly the post lock in the studs.

So would it be much work for a luthier to modify a recessed original floyd rose route to a recessed gotoh floyd rose route?

It would involve drilling out the post holes . I would get some OFR lock bolts to keep the foot print the same. The gotoh bolts are better than stock OFR ones but you can get replacements that are simmilar quality. Allparts sell them.

Warmoth will drill or rout for most popular bridges and tremelos even if they don't sell them. You should contact them and ask.
