Hello. I am looking at this 1980s kramer. Can someone help identify the model? I am pretty sure it is 1980s.

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

Those are MIK correct? I think it is a great looking guitar and I know at least one more here who would approve of the color.
I don't usually find a use for this smiley :flipa , but I like so there you have it.

There´s a 220 right now with FR Pro in Germany on the bay. Same color.

Hey Fellas, not intending to hijack this thread, but wondering what is the consensus regarding FR Pros, and are the advantages worthwhile? I've never owned one, never played one, despite more than 30 years experience with regular OFRs. My co-worker is a decent guitar tech, and his opinion is that they are too fussy, and any added value is insignificant, but he is more of an old-school Fender guy and not a hard core enthusiast of locking trems to begin with. Recently I've become interested in buying one to try it out, but wary, hopeful some of you wise elders will provide some opinions to help guide me.
Thanks!
SO many projects, so little time!

The pros have a lower profile. Same stability.

Lower profile and narrow spacing, otherwise feels very similar. Same quality.
