TALON IIIR

 

 

The differences with the 'regular' Talon III are that it has a reverse (slanting up) headstock and does not have a pickguard. Other than that it is identical.
Talons with a Kahler-labelled tremolo had no screws all through the neck at the nut, and no string retention bar. Other tremolos did.

It used to sell for $989.99.
