Re: Gibson Les paul with facotory Kahler Tremolo

I would love a LP with a Floating Trem. I wonder if that evilbay auction is still going on....

Re: Gibson Les paul with facotory Kahler Tremolo

Here's my 1983 Gibson LP Custom with kahler. Still like new after 27 years.
Recently replaced the pickguard & screws with new ones. Thinking about
listing it on e-bay.

6 year bump to post wrong information. Priceless.
The guitar has complete binding, Scott Smith AND Gibson say it's not a Studio, and this guy takes one piece of information and is sure it's a Studio.

Thanks. It is, but I don't play it that much. LP customs are heavy. But I do
play my 83' SG Std. with kahler, I play this one to death.

There do seem to be a lot of multi year bumps going on at the moment.

That Kahler looks just like the bridge my Destroyer II had. I hated that bridge and replaced it with a stop bar/ tune-o-matic as soon as I could.
