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

TY macki for the nice compliment....the woods used for this build are: Body=Mahogany, Clear coated by Warmouth / Neck=Mahogany, finished by me with 5 coats of Tru-Oil only, to achieve a smooth satin finish.....Thanks for viewing!

Did you shoot the body with clear or is it just olied? Looks quite shiny.
TY Sergej....the body was clear coated (lacquer) by Warmouth, I think they did a great job....far better then what I could have done
for sure. Thank You for checking it out.

Yes Steve, there still is a TR adjuster located at the heel (mainly used to set your inital desired relief), then you can fine tune it at the side. Works really slick...fast and easy!

It plays and sounds just fantastic (guess I got lucky). The woods I used were chosen deliberately .... and the Mahogany just did it for me. :thumbs
