    I'd love to try one..... but I refuse to pay a new price for something I may not use at all. So I'll probably never try one.
     
  3. I may be interested...

    I've seen the Kahlers on eBay anywhere from $300-350 and even a few bucks higher.

    How's four pics? I've got a black one that I'm willing to part with. Will pull it off my factory BC Rich Warlock that I bought as a project, will fix up to sell. If you want the Kahler, name a reasonable price. Works very VERY nicely.

    Who says I want $300? Anything that would look good in my wallet is a reasonable offer at the moment. Was thinking more like $250.

    What makes these so pricy is they were only made for about five years in limited quantities. Based on the sheer unavailability, anyone who really wants one would pay around $300. They're amazing bridges, just never caught on with the bass playing public.
     
  14. glad that I bought that $60 Kahler! I don't know if I'm gonna use it, but hey! I have one!:)

    So buy 'em all up and sell them for a huge profit to the Les Claypool lovin' types.

    What are you waiting for!? ;)
     
  18. ;) naaahhh.. don't want to rip off fellw TB'ers. Gonna sell them in the OTHER forum.:p
     
  19. sorry, I have no clue why I said $300...
    $250 is still more then Id like to pay for anything before I land myself a new bass. I was hopeing a steal for like 100 but its all good, sorry
