I see no deceit. Mentions specifically that the body and neck were separate, as well as the parts. Here's the translation:
This guitar I have successively built up a ' 84 Kramer Pacer Deluxe Body (Alder), which I brought from the USA, from my guitar maker.
I had the body painted with Walter Kraushaar in White (polyurethane) (Superthin).
The neck also comes from the USA (Maple/Rosewood) and is a beginning/mid 80s Chickenhead with the patent pending Decall.
The Pickguard (3 ply) I have to cut after the original template (1 ply).
The configuration is HSS:
-The Steghumbucker is a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck Trembucker with a nickel cap.
-In the middle sits a singel coil (custom flat strat-middle RWRP SSL-6 RWRP).
-On the neck a single coil (SSL-6Custom flat).
As a tremolo, I opted for a sounder lock master. In my view better than the "original" Floyd Rose. It is optimized around ' fu-tone ' brass parts (Spring claw, screw and block).
There are locking tuner installed.
All in all a great guitar that geba for the harder gait
Looking at the headstock pic, it sure does look like a silk-screened waterslide decal. Regardless of one thinks of the shape - and that is also up for debate as they mixed and matched parts - the neck looks pretty legit to me. I don't think the asking price is bad either, as someone would have what looks to be a gig-ready instrument.
Whether there is value in a build like this is up to the potential buyer. Not all buyers are of a collector mind. In fact we had a thread earlier where many folks said that they are more players than collectors, yet all the sudden playability goes out the window because the guitar is not all original. Then there was the thread where folks said that anything could have happened at Kramer the way parts were mixed and matched, yet this body is not a real USA Pacer, and the neck can't be from a USA series because of the headstock shape. Meanwhile there's about 3 or 4 non-tilt nana head shapes, and about as many tilt-nana head shapes... not to mention scarf joined, 3-piece, "tranny", "tranny" with skunk stripe... And really this has ALWAYS been the problem with Kramers as far as collectability.
What I can say for sure is that there is no doubt in my mind this is a Sports body. Starting with the larger body shape with larger space around the cutaways, the hard edge on the forearm contour, the tummy cut that is a lot longer than a Focus and blends in more with the forearm cut on the front, the shape of the trem cavity, the half-length bevel for the springs (Focus have fully beveled spring cavity because they are CNC'd), and the smoking gun "notch" on the lower left side that can be seen on many if not all USA bodies from at least '82 all the way to '85.
