and for the record, my trem stays in tune. it has never gone out of tune. not once. it has never broken a string either. i like the feel of it, so i am happy with it. so it's not a kahler. so fucking what?? apperently, i'm 100 percent satisfied with it so a kahler will not make me any bit more happier. the world does not revolve around BLS, so fucking think before you decide to dis our guitars.

You seem to be the ignorant one who REFUSES to try anything besides what you have. Try a kahler and you will see the light.

I have to agree that Kahler bridges kick the holy shit out of any Floyd style bridge. It's like, how would you know something sucks when you have never tried something that is cool?

They are going to, but it's taking a little time. I will be so happy once they do because I'm sick of paying for over priced parts of Kahlers

Well, I recently changed the strings on my guitar which has a Kahler Flyer (as pointed out by BLS) and what I am going to try out for now is not to use the locking nut. I don't use the trem arm at all anyways. I'll be tuning the guitar with the conventional pegs and ignore the fine tuning knobs.

The reason for me to try this is when I have used the locking nut the high E string has snapped after a while (on the headstock side of the nut). It did not change the string tension because the locking nut was tight enough to hold the string on its own.

The second reason is that after awhile, the fine tuning knobs were threaded all the way into the bridge for tuning purposes (the string would always go flat over time). After a while, I couldn't tune the string anymore with the fine tuning knobs. I would then have to unlock the strings and tune it with the headstock pegs anyways and to reset the fine tuning knobs on the bridge.

It was starting to drive me nuts. I still haven't had it professionally setup yet.

Has this happened to anyone else, that is, having the fine tuning knobs fully adjusted?

After you tighten the locking nut, releave tension using the tuning pegs. This takes ALOT of tension off the headstock and will alos tell you if you locked the nut enough (obviously if it goes out of tune when you do so.. then the nut isent tight enough.)

Kahlers make jesus shower the planet with chocolate, please put it to good use

I use Kahler and I too had the same problem with having some of the fine tuning knobs max out, but it's normal as the strings stretch more and more over time. Try to have the fine tune knobs almost half way down on the 3 thinker strings and about 1/3 of the way down on the thin strings before you tighten the nut. This preverts the problem from ever happening agian.

I have a very oldass Washburn acoustic which I've been playing on for a year. It must be around 8 years old, and the strings have never been changed lol. The bridge is really starting to worry me, it's peeling off leaning towards the neck quite a bit, I can fit picks in the space between the bridge and body, and while it's still sturdy, I can only imagine what will happen if I decide to change strings.

The day I decide to get my lazy ass to change the strings, should I reattach the bridge with some wood glue or should I take it to some luthier, have him rip me off but do a good job at repairing it? I'm just afraid of the neck fucking up when I remove the strings to fix the bridge. The neck is doing fine, just some high action(gets higher as you get closer to the body)

I've read most of this thread and I'm becoming intersted in tremolo bridges. I still don't own an electric guitar though I've been playing for a year, and I'm about to buy a very good axe with a tune-o-matic... I've heard that tremolos are not ideal for a first electric since they can be problematic, but I'm wondering if there's any (non-shitty) tremolo-equipped guitars for $600 new or less? Obviously I'd love to go with a Kahler or an OFR, but I don't think I'll find guitars in that price range with such bridges since they bridges alone cost up to $300, right? Should I just wait until the day I spend $1000+ for a tremolo bridge? How's the one on the Jackson RR3?

I have a question about locking nuts, you have to unfasten them to tune up right? And what's this "fine-tune" screw on the bridges? Is this used to tune after a locking nut has been fastened?

Here's a very noobish question. I just bought a string-thru body guitar, which is my first electric. My question is: how the hell do you set new strings? I mean... what keeps the strings clinged inside the body? Some kind of screw? I'm very confused.
