Need information on a Kramer Duke bass

Post by Fieldfenn » Mon Oct 02, 2017 1:23 pm

So I have a headless bass and after much searching have found that it is a Kramer Duke bass. It has the schaller tuners, aluminum neck and a two screw neck plate with "made in U.S.A" stamped on it and serial number A7100. I just cant find much other reference for it online and was wondering if anyone here had info on it such as year made, pricing, or why it doesn't say Kramer or The Duke anywhere on it. ... ent&page=1

The Duke was made between like 1981 & 1985. Your serial number on the neckplate being a A71**, seems to indacate a late A plate. so it would must likley be a 81 as A plates ran from like 80 to mid 81
