    Is it the older style Floyd where there bridge pivots are screws that go directly in to the wood, vs. machined bolts that go in to threaded studs set in the body? If so, that's not a totally uncommon problem whether or not the bridge was 'too high' even. Doweling out and getting a 'modern' stud+bolt kit is recommended vs. doweling and reusing the screw-type pivots.

      That is likely to be it. It is wood, not studs. Do modern ESP KH's still use wood? or have they gone to modern studs? And in its current state the guitar probably isnt fit to be parted out as i don't want to rip anyone off and selling a body with a dodgy floyd mounting would seem wrong. When fixed you will be the first to know JSHRED
