Pleasant surprise- Kramer neck

Post by leftykramerguy » Thu May 21, 2020 2:41 pm

Well, I have put off refinishing the headstock of the Lefty turned Righty turned Lefty neck that I purchased from 2112 a few years back. Had the paint and water slide decal for a while but did not want to tackle it.

Started sanding...

Original logo!

My thoughts are to carefully sand it down to expose the original, clear coat and be done.

Wish me luck.
Excellent cost performance is a strong friend of a left-handed guitarist!

Should be able to save the original. The clear is thick!! Wet sand & polish. :thumbs
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

I had that body, and another nos car sustainer body. Didn’t want to plug holes to imperialize them. They were too beautiful. I sold you that neck, and the two bodies to a guy in a far off land. If I remember correctly

It was a beaut. Didn’t have the heart to start messing with the finish. I think a guy in Russia bought both of them. Not a fan of maple boarded pointies, either.
