here is a qoute from the man himself who did most the kramer painting and assembly,except for the esp necks,was talkin to"George Felise" last night on Facebook and this was his direct qoute!! the absolute truth from one of the main guys at kramer.
George Felise ---As long as he's not looking for an exacting date, then it's close enough. Believe me when l tell you though, with all due respect regardless of the amount of years you've been researching ...there tens of thousands out there. Numbers Necks & Decals are all over the place from us at the factory AND guys building them from parts. You have a better chance of seeing Mother Theresa's Ghost Deep Throating Axel Rose than you do of pinpointing a Kramer production date down to anywhere within 3 months.
George Felise-- Even if it's written on the frickin hang tag...
(he was respondin to some guy who was telling me exact dates and hardware and logo's )
pretty cool dude ,help me to get close as possible with neck and plate.--after readin what he had to say, im all good with my low e plate from wizball.
early 86 and 2500 too 8700,big gap considering,but as he said they just grab whatever,whenevr for whatever.
