What has been seen cannot be unseen!

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

Hah, I was just about to make a post on this.

First of all, judging from what one can see of the body, it looks like it was clad in fur for a reason: it looks beat to hell, and probably repainted on top of the original paint. What is more, the neck pocket has been sanded down, so there isn't much use in saving this.

Finally: unless that is one of those stupid overlay fretboards that Warmoth offer, the neck will not intonate on that body. Whoever bolted this together really didn't have a clue (as if that wasn't already obvious!)
No longer looking for a late-era Baretta I body (with double scooped lower horn).

Great trades with: bacon

Not unless the bridge also got moved to the right spot. And yeah, the lower horn has been gouged way beyond the FB and that neck joint, holy crap.
