The early black trems were powder coated chrome ones. This may be one.

I know this is nothing scientific but look at this picture.. The other guitar is my Creme colored Focus 4000 Flying V like in the 1983 Focus flyer.

The best I could measure it, all the necks of my other Kramer are 3/4" thick and this guitar is 7/8".. Looks and feels a lot thicker.

Wow, crazy noticeable! Especially considering the general consistency of those ESP beak types.

Just to be clear, the neck on the left ( with the thin rosewood board where the position makers bisect the joint between the 2 wood types) that is the THICK neck, correct?

Yes, the neck on the left is the thick neck that belong to the black, RR shaped Kramer Focus 4000 in this post.

The neck on the right belong to my other Focus 4000, Flying V shaped Focus 4000 (See below)

My foci necks range from '84 to '86 ( best I can tell ). All of them guessing were ESP manufactured and all about the same thickness as you suggested most of yours are. It is interesting that they all look more like the one on the left (except for the rounder profile near the nut). What I mean is the nut shelves on all mine are narrower than the actual nuts and all have side dots splitting the joint or seam between the neck and the finger board. Maybe you can officially call yours an ESP custom shop neck.

Love that picture above, what a cool environment in which to play guitar. Nice axe and cool place to hang it for the photo shoot. :fly
