Ebony is black from the start, no need to dye it. Maybe it's oil or leftover dust from polishing.

I remember my GKG Custom being dyed rosewood though.

Pale stripes in ebony are common, these get dyed for a uniform black fretboard.

1986-ish Barrington Guitar Werks, Foxxe.
HSS configuration with standard Fender style trem.
Body by ESP along side with the Kramer’s. All similar to the Focus 6000 and Pacer Custom I. Upgraded it with a Seymour Duncan Full Shred in 1992. Great, solid built guitar for sure.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

menace thank you very much! I think I’m on track now. All this Kramer content is amazing and I want to be a part of it to learn and contribute.
Thanks for the compliment on the lefty neck. I bought the raw maple neck for the Foxxe initially off ebay for a reverse hockey crazy look. Then decided to use it for a Kramer project for my lefty son who’s in a couple hard core bands. It turned out great structurally and he’s very satisfied with it.

Barrington 884TC. One of the nicest guitars I've ever played. If you ever have a chance to get one buy it they're well worth it.
