A damn, I missed the holes, I just looked at the guitar as a whole.
i hate mods like that where they just slap it on
i did a mod like that (love the kahler), but the luthier insisted to do it "the right way" and finish everyting
My first guitar was an old Charvel model 3 with a Khaler. Black.
I dont remember much about it. I seem to remember that the locking nut was behind the actual nut, so you still have to pencil the slots. Tuning stability was good enough I think. I made a tape where I used the whammy bar and I don't remember it going out of tune. I dont remember much from back then. I was a teenager.
I just found this. Was the model 3 on this page.
Khaler Fulcrum looks like a direct FR copy. I remember I put grease on the post heads.
I think the post screw heads were beveled to a point, and there was a slot in the trem base that they fit into. Sorta the opposite of a FR.
man old school charvels are a fuckin vibe dude. Honestly if I wasn't into deathmetal and pointy shapes I would probably just play Charvel exclusively.
Man, why wreck a perfectly good Floyd guitar by converting it to THAT?
Probably because "SLAYYY0000RRRRRRRR!1`11"
Yeah it's unfortunate but it piqued my interest because it wasn't black and it was a NJ series Eagle
Also fun fact: It was setup with .105's for like octave down standard
I have a Model 2 with a nut like that
Still no Chuck Tribute model reissue? I’ll check back at later date
I have a Model 3 as well, red it is. The Kahler is such a pain: doing the intonation using the screws under the thing, loading the strings from the back, the double edges design... Parts are still avalaible but cost a sweet penny.
I thought long and hard about buying a current BC Rich. Obviously sight unseen given circumstances and general availability. I even almost went for it not too long ago but sadly the dude sold out before I got my brain in gear to say yes. Regrettable.
Ultimately I think I'm going to hold out and wait for a 7 string warlock.
Except they'll make it a 25.5". Neo BC Rich seems to have the same attitude towards its 7-strings as Ibanez did 15 years ago.
That would be a point in favor of me buying it. I prefer 25.5".
I much prefer 25.5" too! I had a baritone scale 7 before and I found my left hand cramping up like a mofo.
what is this??
It was a vid of Herman Li going over his USA custom BC Rich. All specs, no playing.
Oh I saw that. Its basically just an Ibanez with a b.c. rich headstock.
Well, neck thru with the Sophia bridge anyhow.
It was definitely a superstrat...
