There are 10 basic Kahler designs as shown below. Look for the basic shape to identify your model. Tremolos will have arms as shown. Hint: If the part looks like the part you want, it is the correct part because Kahler re-used the same parts over many models. There really are no mystery "in between" parts. For example: all 6, 7 and 8 string tremolos and the fixed bridge for guitar all use the same saddles. The roller material may be different but the saddles are the same for all those models. Just examine the part closely and go with your instinct. Below are direct part links for the models shown on the left.

This is a stud mounted model. You can tell that it is made for Tune-O-Matic (TOM) style mounting situations by the 2 hooks on the sides which go around the big TOM studs. All stud mounted models have this shape. It could be a 6, 7 ,8, 9 or 10 string tremolo. the base just gets wider to accommodate more saddles. The stud mounted model, whether its a Pro Hybrid or X-Trem, has not changed since the 1980's except for the "Kahler" logo position and a few new features. A CAM lock was added since 2005. Otherwise it's the same parts as before. There is also a similar "Gibson" stamped model called the 2230 Super-Tune that was on 1984 -86 Gibson's. Use the 2330 Flyer parts for the 2230 Gibson model.

This is a flat mounting model. You can tell by the four installation screw holes on the front and sides. All flat mounting tremolos have this shape (except for the FLYER). It could be a 6, 7 ,8, 9 or 10 string tremolo, no matter... the base just gets wider to accommodate more saddles. The flat mounting model, whether its a Pro Hybrid or X-Trem, has not changed since the 1980's except for a few new features. A CAM lock was added to the mounting plate and the shape of the back (behind the fine tuners) went from flat in the 80's, to a rounded back since 2005. Also the "Kahler" logo position was changed. In the 80's it was on the side shoulder and a USA PAT # was on the back. Today the "USA PAT 4457201DS has been replaced with the Kahler logo. Same parts as before. Read more about this model.

This is a flat mounting model. You can tell by the four installation screw holes on the sides. It has FLYER stamped on the top. It is hard to miss. It's the only model that shares the same shape with the fixed guitar bridge (below). The FLYER is a tremolo and the fixed bridge is not. The Flyer has been discontinued since the late 80's.

This is a flat mounting model NON TREMOLO. Made to retrofit any flat guitar body, it requires no body routing. Older models had "Kahler" stamped on the shoulder while newer models have Kahler stamped on the back behind the fine tuners. It's the only model that shares the same shape with the FLYER (above). The difference is that this one is NOT a tremolo,t is a fixed bridge.

This one is easy to identify as its got "Kahler" 3 times across the top and "Made in USA" in between. Brass roller models were called the 2520 Traditional model and the model with the black (steel) roller were called 2500 Pro. model. Found on many imports, it shares the same 2-3/16" post spacing as the 2710 Killer (below).

You may get confused between this 2710 and the 2720 (below). At first glance they may look similar but the 2710 looks like a jet aircraft and the Spyder does not. To identify a 2710 Killer correctly, look for the "2700 Series" stamped on shoulder next to the arm hole. Found on many guitars, it shares the same 2-3/16" post spacing as the 2500 Traditional (above).

Don't get confused between this 2720 and the 2710 (above). At first glance they may look similar but the 2710 looks like a jet and the Spyder does not. To identify a 2720 Spyder, look for the name "Spyder" stamped on shoulder next to the arm hole. If your saddles look different, you simply have a non-locking or finger-locking saddle set option. You most likely need the more common wrench (Allen) locking version saddles (shown).

This one just looks like a Floyd Rose except its stamped Kahler...and it does has some slight differences. But if it looks like a Floyd but it's stamped "Kahler" then it's a 2760 Steeler.

The bass tremolo is hard to mistake. Whether its a 4, 5 or 6 string bass tremolo, the parts are the same, the base just gets wider to accommodate more saddles and string hooks.

The Standard and Deluxe (Pro) stringlock's are both "after the nut" mounting devices. Both stringlock models (not to be confused with the locknuts below) use many of the same parts. The standard uses allen keys and the Deluxe uses detent levers to lock the strings in pairs. These only come in six string versions. All others should advance to a Locknut.

The locknuts are similar to any Schaller version in size only. But these have a string director to keep the strings in a straight line over the base so the clamp plates will completely cover and clamp the string. Comes in 6, 7 and 8 string versions. All the versions use the same parts. There are 2 types of clamp screw that were used. The picture shown has the taller barrel head #5441 screws with the 1/8" Allen head. The other more common screws used were the #8440 mushroom head cap screws with a smaller 3/32" Allen head.
