Well, taking that one piece of the manifolds out is one way to copensate for not wanting to route away 1/8" of wood. I don't know what the manifold's mechanical integrity is without that piece but I don't think I'd wanna find out.

That was actually better than some of the other compensation repairs I've seen.

Ide still rather do mine correctly and countersink the base. The routing takes me 5 min.

I found the video to be quite amusing, especially when the guy starts out bagging on the Kahler design, only to get things relatively dialed in, and then find that he could have quite a bit of fun with it. Laughing

The guy obviously knows how to do bass repairs, but his video clearly indicates why our information needs to get out to the masses. The guy before him who do the initial install had no clue as to the proper way of doing so, and this guy clearly didn't see the value in having a trem. That is, until he started to actually mess with it.

I have seen and heard this sort of thing WAY to often over the past decades. Luthiers and techs who just don't get it. What ruffles my own feathers is that, as a repair tech, he should know what this unit is, and what to do with it. His banter also seems to show his apparent apathy for the concept. "You're already low, so what can you do? Go lower?". Damn straight!

What also gets me is that none of this stuff is rocket science. Routing (and by this I mean starting from a fresh, un-cut body), installing, and setting up something like a stock Strat trem, or a Floyd, is WAY harder to do than a Kahler trem is, be it either guitar or bass.

Yep. A countersink is definitely required to properly fix that bass.

Thanks for sharing this video, Al!
