Is that a Khaler trem ? If so I'd guess the owner got fed up with floyd type bridges and wanted something more stable. At least it's gold and matches the rest of the hardware. Could be worse.

Kahler are now alive and well again. The company has started selling them again. Their website is back up and running too. They had gone "bust" years ago, but have re-formed again. They started-up again May 2005.

I am actually partial to a Kahler trem. I really like them. But even I think that putting it on a VWH is just a pure crime. But I am glad Kahler are back in business again.

You can also notice that there's no evidence that there used to be a floyd there as well. No hole where the trem posts are supposed to be and also. Looks more like a replacement body but then again, it could be a very well done refinish with the old trem cavity filled in.

I like it. Something different, something personal.

You can have your standard VWH everyday of the week....this one is custom.

You simply can't beat that.

Although I would have put custom scratch plate on there too.

Looks ok to me, I'm sure it plays well. I don't know if it's such an upgrade to be worth the price of the trem (320US?), but hey, if it makes the owner happy it looks good to me. If they had left the original trem on and painted the pickguard black it would look 10X worse... :lol:
