Yes it would definately be worth getting for that price. I bet buyers are confused about its color too and that is why it hasn't gone up in price very much. That or they are all waiting to snipe it at the last minute and get a better deal. How hard would it be to get a quality black finish put on a Kahler bridge, does anyone know? I know how to completely dismantle, rebuild, and maintanance 2300 Kahlers, but I don't know shit about hardware finishes.

If i had a kahler i wouldnt sell it! I usually just sell shit like crappy stock pickups and hardware (including lincensed floyds) I also have a bunch of routing templates i no longer need, and alot of luthiery tools that i rarely use. I sold a bunch of old ass wrestling toys for $100

Make sure they give you a fair price on shipping too. I hate it when a ebay seller will not tell you the price for shipping and then charge $15 after the auction, but it only cost $3.15 to mail it I have asked sellers before what shipping would total and they say only real shipping cost, but then after the auction its a standard $15 for shipping. If it cost $3.15 to mail I could understand $5 shipping cost, but $15, no fuckin way.

The bridge is all you will need. Fuck the nut if it isn't the Floyd type locking kind! Floyd nuts have the best design, imo. Also the lock nut radius has to be matched close to your neck radius. The radius on the Kahler bridges are completely adjustable so no worries.

How much work would have to be done to a guitar with a floyd rose to have to be able to use a kahler. I know there would probably have to be a lot of routing done.
I'm not planning on doing this, I'm just curious.

The biggest part of the work is to fill the cavities for the Floyd again. The Kahler needs only a slight recession of a rectangular area, IIRC. And for those who use ToMs, there are post mount Kahlers, which I *believe* fit right onto the posts that are already there.

I have a tune-o-matic on my dime, so I really dont have to worry about filling spaces.

I don't think that the post mounted Kahlers fit on existing ToM bridge post.

Kahler trems don't require nearly as much routing as Floyds but the non-trem 2?00 flat mount Kahlers need no routing at all. I had one before and it was just like any 2300 Kahler with fine tuning knobs but no trem. It mounted flat on the surface of the guitar... looked beautiful too.

Fear can use a kahler like this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...3734652850&rd=1

and cannibal i just put a kahler flatmount 2300 on one of my guitars that had a floyd on it. I used this tuturial http://projectguitar.com/tut/tht1.htm but dont use glue, make sure you use expoxy as your ONLY adhesive, dont use woodfiller either.. epoxy is ALOT stronger, and can withstand greater heat.

It took me a weekend to do it. Not necessarily hard, but its just time consuming sanding the blocks down to fit in the cavity tightly. In the end it was DEFINETLY worth it.

So would you have to refinish the guitar? It sorta looks like you have to but I might be wrong.

Depends, you cna always leave the spring cavity cover on.. which will hide the filled spring caviry. And the kahler covers most ot the area you fill in on top. But refinishing would be recommended. You can so a damn good job with a spray can belive it or not.
