Well I didn't really have the $$, but seller was motivated, so I had to grab it. All original from what I can tell and fairly pristine except for the donked-up tip of headstock. Neck feels great and frets excellent. Some of you might have seen David Seymour posted the CL link to fb a couple weeks ago, and from that you couldn't really see the extent of damage to the headstock. It's actually not as bad as it looks, could be cleaned up pretty well, but for now I'll just leave it. The whole thing is pretty dusty, too lazy to wipe it before taking pics. I bought this probably with the intention of flipping it, but it plays so nice that I'm thinking it's probably a keeper. Felt so good I stayed out on my back porch last night with my Scholz Rockman headphone amp until 3am!
Thanks to CaptVox for helping out with this!

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