In the late 80`s/early 90´s I bought 2 Peavey guitars, a Vanden Berg (a sexy
"HeavyMetal"-thing) and a Generation (a telecaster-thing). Both with
installed Kahler Tremomosystem. Im somewhat satisfied with the
systems, BUT;
The stringlock-parts (3 screws and the three small "metal-plates" who
lock
the strings) has grown old, and need replacement on both of my
guitars. Im
in need of new ones. I have spend a lot of time trying to get it
fixed.
So; Please contact me if you can help/know where i can get it!
Thanx a lot.
Have a nice day.

Good Luck!

I replied to your post

I replied to your post earlier and told that the 2700 did not have height adjustment screws, after further examination I found them. You must determine how much you need to raise the saddle, then take the string off that particular saddle and remove the barrel where you feed the string in, pull it all the way out of the saddle, you will see the two small hex screws at the very end of the saddle where the string comes out, at the bridge point, those are the height adjustment screws, I believe this is like any thing else about a floating bridge and is a trial and error process.

sorry about the bogus info earlier.

I think you have to shim

I think you have to shim them, I have one of these and don't see any height adjustment screws, you can buy stainless steel shim stock at any good industrial supply store.

hope this helps
