I need a German made OFR R-1 Chrome nut asap. If you have one let me know. Musicians Arsenal / Floyd Rose is sold out.

And a heads up for my forum bros, if you are tempted by the "7-1/4" radius Kramer 2007 Production Necks" recently listed on eBay, They are in fact 2008 Imperial Reissiue necks from SBC/Sean that Kramer either rejected or were surplus. But, they do need a lot of work, and mine is shrunk 1/16" dimensionally all the way around. The nut is just at 1-9/16" instead of 1-5/8". The heel is a little UNDER 2-1/8" wide instead of 2-3/16". And the rear mount Nut Mounting holes are drilled off center favoring the high E side..........It looks like I can possibly make it playable with decent action with a full out fret level and R-1 nut.

Just want you to know what you are potentially getting into for your $100. And I'm not saying they are all going to be like this as he lists more. I knew going into it that it could be a waste of $100. Thats not entirely the case just yet.

I was eye-balling those.
Nothing positive about having that much shrinkage. (that's what she said)
Not fully dried when made or likely poor storage after they were. toliet
I'll be following your progress.

I bought three of those necks of that guy in the past. They needed an extensive amount of work and cubic dollars to get them playable. The guy assured me they were top notch. If I remember correctly, I had just under $700 in work done to them to get them to work. Guy is a crook.

Yeah, That episode you experienced was in the back of my head when I bought it...... lucky for me I can do any work required. If I had the time I'd just build another couple of necks but time is worth more than gold to me right now .....

Thats what I get for not wanting to wait 4-6 weeks for Musikraft to make a couple more custom necks for me.......... vomit
