Guitar parts forum

Guitar and bass parts discussion forum

While maintaining a page for Schaller parts, I found out that many people have questions I can't answer by myself. Unfortunately, turning to manufacturer doesn't always mean getting any reply, too...

That's why I launched this forum and hope it may help somebody the answers he(she) needs.

I no longer run the forum, but you can discuss everything here (not Schaller's stuff only).

There is only one but: that "everything" should be about guitar/bass or other stringed instruments building, repair etc.

Heavier strings

I changed the strings on my guitar, they were the originals, and its a Floyde Rose locking tremelo.
The new strings are heavy Ernie Balls, now the strings won't stay in tune to save my butt.
I adjusted the springs in the back, but it still won't stay in tune.
There were three springs in the back of the guitar, should I get another one put in???
any help would be great, cause we play next week.
Thanx

most guitars come from the factory with a string
gauge of .009 to .046, and if you go to a heavy
gauge string like .010 to .052's you will need to add a extra spring to your floyd.
the first thing you need to do is get the tension
off the tremolo and then add you spring. make sure
you get the tremolo as level as possible so the
strings will stay in tune. as the strings strech
you will need to retune a few times. I hope this
helps you out dude.

Raising humbuckers

Hey, how do I raise the humbuckers on my Ibanez?????
I want to get more feedback, and I've heard that if you raise the pickups closer to the strings, it will hum more.
This is a brand new guitar, I don't want to mess the pickups up.
so, if someone could tell me how to do that, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanx people!
:^)

Re: Raising humbuckers

I'm no expert, but if your guitar is like most I've seen, then it's pretty simple. I'm guessing it's a standard electic and there should be screws on either side of the pick-up with the head sticking through the pickguard. just tighten those up. there's springs on the other side that allow the pickup to move forward and back with those screws.

Ibanez RG220D guitar w/ Floyde Rose floating tremelo

I have a Ibanez RG220B guitar, and the floating bridge on my locking Floyde Rose tremelo keeps raising up when I tune my strings, I've adjusted the springs in the back many times, and the bridge still isn't parallel to the guitar.

It keeps raising or lowering, and I can't keep it straight, so I was wondering how to fine tune it so its level.
thanx

KAHLER PARTS ??????

I have a Jackson king v that has a Kahler fixed fine tune bridge on it.
The part I am looking for is kahler part # 139 (fixed bridge string hook) I have been looking for this part since July of 2001 and still cant find anyone who has this thing. I have went to BC Rich, Kahler,
Jackson, Allparts and every music store I can find...... if anyone knows where I can find these things e-mail me. Oh yeah one more thing
DONT EVER BUT ANYTHING THAT HAS KAHLER ON IT ANYWHERE !!!!

Join the club

I have a Heritage with a Kahler floating trem on it, and one of the string hooks broke. It's a locking bridge, but so what. I've tried looking into replacing the trem, finding the little piece of plastic I need, and have come up bupkis. I'm in touch with Heritage hoping they have something laying around.

If they do, perhaps they might be able to help you. I know they typically make Gibson lookalikes, but the one I bought looks just like a plain-jane Jackson. If I learn anything, I'll let you know.

PS: Yes, avoid Kahler like plague.

Re: Talking of which

: I've been out of the scene for a while and I get the impression Kahler are no more, am I right? Thing is I've got a Jap copy of a Kahler trem I've had since Kahler first made the things, must have been early eighties. This Jap company brought out a copy and I think Kahler sued for copyright. I am in the middle of making my own guitar and it needs one of these Kahler type trem systems. Its an excellent design. So, does anyone know of any other company making this type of system?

Kahler does have a website but it is pretty lame. I too have been bitten by the kahler bug. I have J.B. Player Strat knock off from the late 80's that had a kahler floating trem. broke the trem in shipment, Body sounded good so I wanted to replace. Now I have a gaping hole that only the original kahler will fit.

Was bidding on ebay for the exact replacement. Got over bid at the last second, He got it for 30 bucks. Seller said it came out of an old Peavey.

How do I install a new Tremelo in a guitar that already has one

I've got a Peavey Tracer. And a KMD Floyd Rose Licensed Tremelo. There is an existing Tremelo installed "Kahler Flyer". It's all rusted, broken. The KMD is a different style with bigger studs than the previously installed flyer. How do I go about installing this new Trem myself. Books? Advice? Tools? Estimated time for beginner? Thank you

Re: Kahler tremelo wanted for Les paul style guitar

I came across your question and thought I'd write to ask if you've had any luck yet. I am seeking a palm bar for my mid/late 1980s Gibson USA1, which came stock with a Kahler. I've been able to order the tremelo that will fit but there is a 2nd hole for the palm bar. Let me know if you can help. Thanks.

the second hole was for a screw that increased or decreased the spring tension tension via a cam connected to the springs to set the floating height of the part of the tremolo that pivits. if you remove the tremolo you will see the cam
