I bought a Kahler 2700 on the bay thinking it would go in place of my Fender Am. Std trem on my Heartfield without much modification. Turns out I was hella wrong.
The spacing is right, but the bridge needs to be countersunk at least 1/4" just to get level to the neck (set neck, can't shim), not the end of the world, but I was hoping to bypass this.
Then the mounting screws are far smaller and I don't think I'll be able to find anything similar that will fit the existing holes, ugh. This isn't looking good.
Then I flip it and notice the block is already protruding out past the trem cavity on the back of the guitar. If I countersink the trem this thing is gonna need milled down, a lot.
Now I'm thinking I should have just got a Floyd. If I have to dowel the holes, rout the top, and mill the block I might as well, right? I have a guy that will do the install for a reasonable price, but can I get a short enough block? It's not really that thin of a body, I was really surprised at how much higher this thing sits and how long the block is. Kinda looks like I just wasted $90.
Anyone need a Kahler Killer trem?
