That's a really solid 1st/2nd post!! Welcome. Killer foci! :headbang

The 2000 looks darn close to original metallic blue! Good job!

Thanks, guys. I have been on/off active over the years, but my handle somehow went inactive and I wasn’t able to recover it, so I had to sign up again. Either way, my love for Kramers has not faded.

I'll bite. A little nervous though since this thing has a lot of wear, tear, and signs of modifications/band-aids over the years, here's one of my main workhorses - this one for almost 30 years - it was my first electric guitar, and I just recently put one of those iSustainer units in it, works great. 1985-1986 Kramer Focus 3000, I've had it since 1995. It's heavily modified and has a candy-store of tonal options. I've been playing it a lot again lately. Oh the stories this thing could tell.

Welcome creepingnet! Great Focus; Road tested and stood the test of time. Nice.
Excellent cost performance is a strong friend of a left-handed guitarist!
