In addition, the neck plate does not say Kramer, it says Ferrington. The serial number is also nothing like the others in the registry...

It's 9100141

What is this thing? (Trying to figure out how to post pictures)
Six String is correct. You have a Ferrington made after the 3 years Kramer had their name on them.
Excellent cost performance is a strong friend of a left-handed guitarist!

I purchased my first Kramer Ferrington a few weeks ago. It appears to be an '85-'86 strat sunburst. It's in really great condition and has the Kramer OHSC. Unfortunately the electronics are a mess. The original wiring has been cut and a new pickup was added. Thefore, the original dials and the jack does not work. The new pickup does work, but has a long sustain. The jack for the new pick up is in the strap button. I'd love to add it to the registry:

I have a Ferrington I got brand new in the mid 80's, can't recall exactly which year ... was my go to acoustic/electric guitar for many years until the infamous pickup issues arose, then had it repaired but happened again sometime later and has been mothballed since ... Serial #FA6882.
I have pictures, but not sure how to upload them. Anyway, thanks for the ad and look forward to visiting often! 🤘😎

Just picked up this beater POS. FB 8818 Strat Style. Does anyone know what bridge pins would work with it? Need to replace at least the one.

It should clean up ok. Need to figure out the wiring too.
