I removed the oringal pickguard and had one made from warmoth with a single hum and 1 volume and added a mini toggle to split the Super 3 distortion pup. Pickguard is a .09 beveled vintage 8 hole,fit like a glove.

i just cld not get with the volume knob a 1/4 in off the humbucker,so i am very happy with this axe now.

The neck will be goin to Kremark to get refretted with 6100's when my 86 F1000 neck comes back from Kremark.

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

just bought a 83 f3000 in same colour.
Notice yours was originally sporting emgs and i was wondering if you could let me know how they sounded in the focus cos i was considering buying an active set of emgs for mine.
Did the body have a cavity routed for the battery?
Yours looks great with the new set up.
