Replaced a Kahler Spider II with the golden age tremolo

(Customer's Reviews)

my golden age tremolo sounds awesome, not bad at all. After installation, and painstaking calibration, I played it every day for a week, and every day it stayed almost dead on in tune. Not crazy about the play in the tremolo arm itself, but, it can be bushed. all in all, it sounds clean, bright, and helps the Fender Prodigy sound full like it was supposed to sound in the first place. My Kahler Spider II always sounded dull and lifeless, even with new strings, i was always baffled. the golden age tremolo has caused me to fall in love with this guitar again, very impressed!


Got one, ready to buy another

(Customer's Reviews)

Replaced the flimsy FR-licenced thing on my jackson performer with one of these. Much more tone & sustain! Good construction too. Did need some extra routing onthe surface of the body, mind you, as it's a different size.

I think it's a great tremolo. Just contacted a guitarbuilder to have one installed on my parts strat, too.

Too bad sending it to The Netherlands (where I live) means a lot of p&p ànd import duties. But I still think it's worth the extra cost.


Don't plan on recessing it

(Customer's Reviews)

If you are planning to mount this on top of your guitar it should work, but if you want to recess it, be prepared to do extra routing yourself. It is wider than both the schaller and the floyd rose original, so it will not fit routes designed for either of those.

Also, you better hope you know what you are doing, because this is shipped as a few bags of parts, with no instructions or directions as to whether you should follow the schaller licensed or original floyd rose instructions which are widely available online. Even the stewmac fret position calculator doesn't tell you whether to mount the bridge the distance for a floyd rose original, or schaller.

The parts all seem to be of decent quality, but if I had it to do over again, I would have definitely chosen the schaller the first time.
