I have just got a Kramer Stirker form the early 80's with a floyd on it, but I am wondering what it actually is, a Floyd II or an OFR or what?
I know they were made with all of them, but does anyone have any ideas on what it could be,

as well, to the tune-o-matic's leaning foward, what the hell are you doing to them??? I have never heard of anything like that cept on cheap woods or on improper mountings or personal replacements

yeh in those bridges only the bridge locks, and theirs no need for fine tuner sbecause the nut dosent lock, floyd soon realized he needed the nut to lock for it to stay in perfect tune, but then he needed the fine tuners on the bridge to retune it after you lock the nut.

I have a licensed floyd on my washburn. I dont know how good it is and I'm planning on someday upgrading to an action Floyd. How big of a job would that be?

I have a bcr bronze warlock with one of those shitty wraparound bridges that suck so much c*ck. Do you think its possible do drill six holes in the body and make it a string thru body guitar?

Yes. But you would need a drill press because its harder to get those holes lined up than you would think. You would also need to purchuse some string ferrules, i say just get a tuneomatic with a tailpeice. It would still require some drilling, and a fairly large drill bit.

So here's an ignorant question..
Is kahler defunct? Why aren't they on the web anymore?
If they're defunct, what good quality flatmount trems are still made (or should I just look for a Kahler on ebay)?

Thanks..

http://www.forgedclassics.com/ they msotly make golf clubs now but when theirs enough orders placed then they make a run of kahlers and ship them out (this can take long... depends on how many people want them)
$289 bucks for one

Theirs also some guys at projectguitar.com that sell them for cheaper ($199 if bought from rhoads56)

i still say a string thru body w/ a tonepros tuneomatic bridge is the best, you lose a lot of sustain with trems, esp the floyd kinds

I know about those Tune-o-matic bridges that lean forward. Only the ones that have strings that attach to the bottom or back of the tune-o-matic have this problem. The ones that use a stop tail piece or the strings that go through the body are very good. The tune-o-matic bridge and stop tail post are only designed to have have the strings apply force downward into the guitar OR toward the nut, NOT both force directions on one set of post at the same time. B.C. Rich and Epiphone and the only ones that use this bridge right now and it is a very bad design ideal to save a little money. It's very sad.
