    Those trems have a built in locking system, so with simple turn of a small hex screw it can be permanently locked. For what it's worth.

    Though, you should really ask Kurt, the owner and operator, of Rondo music. His contact info is right on the Rondo site. :yesway:

    Yeah, the Kahler has the ability to be locked down to become a fixed bridge. Actually is worth it still to get one of these because Kahler bridges have alot of ways to adjust the strings to your preference. Plus, it becomes similar to the RG2228 with its fixed edge-3.. double locking fixed bridge with amazing tuning stability.

    Ive been bugging Kurt to make a Septor 8 pro for a long time now. I really prefer the neck-thru models :/

    Kahler flatmount trems are not locking units. They merely hold the string in place at the bridge without locking it in.

    Here you can see the string holders:

    They're those black square shaped pieces just before the fine tuning screws.

    They can be turned into a fixed bridge though, by turning one of those bolts on the rocker bar that's holding the trem arm.
