    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.

    http://www.charvelusa.com/charvel_model_series.html

    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?

    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 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.

    It was a vid of Herman Li going over his USA custom BC Rich. All specs, no playing.
