wow now i really wanna get one. i had heard great things about the flat mounts, but I have not yet been priviledged to try one myself. I was just thinking of what kind of bridge I would like to have one my home made guitar. I think it's worth waiting awhile and getting one of these

I was including the cost of the locking nut. I remeber Kahler offered a locking nut with some feature that made it better.

I like the Kahler flat mount bridge but not their lock nuts. I like the Floyd lock nuts far better. In fact, the Slayer guitarist both use Kahler bridges with Floyd style nuts.

Once Kahler starts mass production I'm going to buy one ever time I can afford too. Just in case something stops production again. That way I can have enough for the rest of my life for my guitars. I'm kinda thinking this is what Slayer did before production stoped, because for years I had no ideal where they got their Kahlers from. ESP guitars could get them for a while, but I read on their forum that they no longer use them do to availability problems. I think this is why the Jeff Hammen (spell?) sig guitars are about to be made with Floyds. I'm sure that Jeff himself hates the ideal. B.C. Rich, I think, still offers them but at a huge cost to the customer. Kerry king still gets Kahlers on his guitars somehow.

No its not kahlerinternational anymore, you can see the link to the new kahler site on the axeparts page, its near the bottom. Its like http://www.kahlerusa.com/ and http://www.kahlerusa.com/Questionair.htm, fill the questionair out and the more people who fill it out they more they will probably get back into the business as hardcore as they used to be.

wow axeparts actually sells kahler trems, and the one i want or atleast the one ive been influenced to get because of soulinsane the black 2300 flat mount. Im still trying to decide if its worth spending 300 bucks on a kahler and popping it in my ran, or just staying with the schaller floyd?? any suggestions.

What They are selling the black trems now... I'v got to go back to their site now. Dude, don't pay $300 for theirs, because you can find them much cheaper on Ebay.

And it is worth getting a 2300 flat mount on your Ran guitar, I know this first hand.

I just looked at the site again. They do have some of the bridges for sale. My Ran has the 2320 standard flat mount bridge; 1 trem arm with brass cam and rollers. The 2300 and 2310 are very nice; 2310 has 2 trem arms (stupid ideal unless you like the way SRV had his trem arm high on the bridge),and the 2300 has 1 trem arm, both made of steal cams and rollers and very bright sounding. Any 2310, 2320, or 2320 ( like my Ran guitar ) would be great.

I know that the 2330 Flyer is different because of the string mounts, but can be replaced with the other string mounts, vise versa. All of the 2300 series flat mounts have exchangable parts to make one or the other. The best thing about that is that you can make your higher note strings use a different string mount metal for different tone than the lower strings of your guitar.

But other than that all the other ones i saw were pretty used or not black or not 2300 flat mounts

Hexsk8, I didn't PM you because I didn't find any either. Once the black ones show up on ebay they disappear within a day, so you have to look everyday and act fast to get one. That's how I got my last one. I put a max bid of $220 and the last minute it went from $145 to $180 because 10 other poeple tried to snipe it from me; those bastards I got it new and still payed less than Axeparts price.

I did find one 2300 bridge with no reserve. Now the desciption says it's a brass finish but it looks black in the pics. It could be a typo error so ask the seller and find out. Maybe the seller was trying to say it is made of brass but acually has a black finish? Bridge
