Just looks like a person had access to the spares from the "G" serial era and slapped this together. my concern are the dot inlays or lack there of, seem like they were removed.

It is a parts hustle and 2K + for parts I think no, big no lol. :beer

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

I agree.
I see blue in the control cavity also.
I don't think it's worth that much. A complete bolt just sold on ebay for $2,500.00.
There were lots of late G plate Swans made. Just look on VK.

Not at that price, but I like that natural finish somewhat.
Practice cures most tone issues.
