Isn't this from the Yo era scratch_head


It looks like a Yo era headstock but I don't remember seeing them with that inlay on the 12th fret. It's most likely, and this is only my opinion, a bad copy of a guitar that was never made by a company that never made a guitar such as Kramer.


All the Music Yo head stocks I've seen have more of a curve at the bottom side especially towards the point. This headstock looks more like a real pointy than a Music Yo....to me.

The pyramid logo is all wrong. A way to tell is to pull the neck. All of mine have had some sort of markings, initials, dates, etc.... one even had a smiley face in the neck cavity.

So I'm gonna go with my original statement

" It's most likely, and this is only my opinion, a bad copy of a guitar that was never made by a company that never made a guitar such as Kramer."

I'm of the opinion that this is a parts guitar from Jolana as well. Nothing Kramer about it.

Hello,

Thanks you for all the replies.

My initial search also trakced me to Jolana (i live in eastern europe what makes it even more possible), but then i realized there is something goofy about this guitar and it doesnt match any model.

To answer some of your guesses:
The 12th fret mark was made by the previous owner.
It says "explozer" and i believe its a band name.
The pickups are dmarzio d-activator (they replaced original ones) and the bridge is schaller pro.
The tone switch was replaced with killswitch.

Overall its a solid guitar just looking little weird.
It sounds big. If setup correctly its impossible to detune it, however it feels a bit clunky when you start hitting frets higher than 15.

Once again thank you for all your time and feedback, cheers!
