Does anyone remember the 'Bart Striker'?

Does anyone remember the Bart Striker? I used to have photos of it, on account of it being one of the best guitars I'd ever witnessed. It was a striker, or some other high-dollar Kramer. The Floyd had been painted green and featured a custom paint job of Bart Simpson smoking a huge joint. It was incredibly juvenile and hilarious. It sold over eBay for close to what it was worth... nothing. The headstock was green. The nut was green. It was truly putrid.

I vaguely remember a discussion surrounding the, "Is that a green Floyd Rose?", in which we learned that they would have supplied them any colour if you asked nicely. This one was definitely spray painted.

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

At least this somewhat confirms that I didn't imagine it :toast .

I bring this up because I was talking guitars with my girlfriend, and mentioned it. This guitar may be lost to time. Possibly for the good of humanity.
