Hi I use to be a member on the old Kramer forum and recently found this place. I didn’t post much but my forum name was Blitz.
So I recently bought this gorgeous stagemaster deluxe 1. Sadly whoever packed it up for shipping at the store didn’t do a great job and it arrived with a busted headstock. This is thankfully in hand and I’ve had a partial refund to pay for the repair so hopefully all will be well.
It’s trans red mint condition apart from the headstock of course.
Thing is it’s slightly different than most deluxe 1’s I’ve seen online. In fact I’ve only seen one other like it so far which happened to be the same colour and is the serial number right after mine.
So my question is did Kramer change the design at some point during the production run? Do any of you guys have a deluxe 1 with the deluxe 2 control layout and electronics cavity?
Can’t wait to get it back and finally start playing it.
Hopefully these photo links will work if I remember how to do this that is.
This is the humbucker cavity it’s not the best picture but the writing says DX-1 STRed
Humbucker has been changed to this DiMarzio don’t really know much about it and because of the headstock couldn’t really try it out.
Stagemaster ‘s are one range of Kramer Guitars I’m really not very familiar with.
If you have any information on this thanks in advance.
