But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Kramer did all sorts of headstocks with that body shape but I think that's the only one that really works.

The pointy headstock definitely works best with the V of that era. The early ones with the rounded ends worked good with the Beak.

Ahhh, sorry back late meant to follow up quicker

I actually need to sell a few and wanted to see if we could interact and discuss this one- there was a great deal of colaboration back in the daze, and this is obviously longer ago that a decade, but I'm not sure what the values are anymore.

The Body was the first year long pointy upper horn, found in excellent condition on ebay, assuming the nanner neck failed?.
The Neck was an 87 Pointy with white trim that had a nick/break on the lower protion: replaced with black (as this was destined to be a full on black beauty in my imagination) and stayed with the pyramid logo.
The Black Hardware was all salvaged from an 86 Pacer that was being parted out on the old forum.
The big surprise was that a Frightening Physican pulled a JBJ from an 86 Kline and let it go!! (i found that the icing on the cake.
Another excellent (IMO) part of the build was that it has one of those E Plates that was found in that box of leftover parts at the fire sale and documented/sold as NOS- I really like that variation on what we call a mutt :)
Finding an original Case fir these was a PITA but found one (pricey) and it had a home.
Finally, the rosewood fretboard had a light coat of Black Wood Dye applied to truly dial in the black on black look.


Anywayz, I know what the paret out value is for most of this stuff but also believe the axe has a place in the world to be jammed on like a MOFO. Wanted some input from the brothers and youz guizes thoughts on the build.

BTW, action is super low, credit card sticks in every area from but to base, no buzz, rips like a rocker is spoozed to rip.

Thanks
