It will shift depending on light color, but roughly:

I gather that means a black light is more in the violet spectrum. Ya learn something new everyday.

I'm building two Teles right now... though not as colorful. While these will have traditional Tele necks, I plan on making some with my own headstock design, which does pay homage to the beak neck Kramers...

Come to think of it, a pointy or nana head with a nice figured body would be a cool combination of different era Kramers, and if I can somehow incorporate aluminum into the necks...

Those look great :headbang the second one looks very thick though, or is it the cam angle?

Practice cures most tone issues.

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

Thanks guys... yes the second one is 1/4" thicker, and they are both fully chambered so they're light and resonant - and easier on the back!

The second one is curly California redwood, and the pickups are rear-loaded, no screws or rings on top.
