It's a prototype & rare as stated in the listing.
YMMV.
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

If a Floyd is not mandatory this might just be perfect for you.
Practice cures most tone issues.

The logo is the only thing that made me hesitate. I think it's priced ok. A little high

I remember only seeing one other Vintage Series, can't remember if it was white or cream... With extra cash this would be a definite buy for me. And with the Walker route, this is easily among the first wood neck Kramers made.

Look at the pictures closely. Its stable, but makes me a little nervous. Might just be the photo. I purchased an 81 that I thought might have a strange logo sticker, but in person, looks fine. One good thing: the seller is legit. So I think you can buy with confidence

Thanks. I'll email about the logo.

I've met Eric a few times over the years and he is absolutely legit! I'm always happy to buy a guitar from someone trustworthy even if it means I don't get the best deal in the world.

Awesome! My strat head Pacers are my favorites. I like Floyd's, but you have so many more options without the FR. Hope you pull the trigger!
