Hi, thank you for add to forum.

I need info for my kramer proaxe F series on neck plate.

I bought this from a second-hand guitar shop. But this guitar has a different volume than the other. I wonder if the guitar was modified or a fake guitar. I think the bridge pickup is replace to seymour duncan JB.

Thank you.

Holy shit!! :yikes drool
A 24 fret claw neck!! Not many of those in the wild.
Not original trem. Should be a parallel axis pup & a Floyd pro.

Welcome.

Yea, what you have there is a real ProAxe Standard model body, wrong trem, wrong pup , era correct neck plate, and a cool bound claw 24 fret neck thats been re-logoed with the Proaxe name, which would not of come out of the factory, A cool mutt for sure , but I agree someone used Firesale parts or Japan market only neck, which were bolt-ons (example Grace or Glide Series ), and put it together, ALSO , I would check the scale length. The unreleased 24 fret (or rare Pacer) models that never made it before they closed would of been long scale, ( I have Swan, Proaxe and 1 of the 24 fret Pacer's...Pacer is long scale 24 fret, not short scale as a Swan or ProAxe. But I'm leaning on that being a neck off a Grace Series my self. There were were a few on Reverb not too long ago, And had bolt on 24 fret claw necks, No "American" afer Kramer logo. Easy to get the Proaxe water slide later and add it. Either way cool mix. Check the scales length though, other wise enjoy, Or sell it to me , I like the oddball stuff that pops up. lol

It's cool, need to know the scale length of the neck and the nut size. Love it, and I would be a buyer as well

Definitely check the scale length.
Here is mine.
Also. The Pro Axe had ebony fret boards. The trem rout was also unique. The trem rout was pretty deep, and slanted. See my pic's.

I am confused by the position of volume tone and selector. Proaxe does not have this kind of positioning. The scales lenth is 25 inches.

Fret boards of mine looks like rosewood.
Scales lenth 25 inches.

More question

1.Tremolo stamp KRAMER installed in which model?

2.Maple neck and rosewood fingerboard installed in which model?

3.The screw holes on the back plate do not look like the other.

Thank you.

1. In the entry level Music Yo models for example.

2. Different models like Baretta or Pacer came with claw necks. But not the 24 fret variety.

3. If it´s a firesale mutt it might be that the holes weren´t pre-drilled.
