JK1000B project finished.

Post by Evil1986Genius » Thu Oct 27, 2022 3:52 pm

Since i had a spare R5 American Neck sitting around along with a Focus B cast plate, Floyd 1000 with a FU tone Copper Block, Schaller Tuners and JBJ & HotRails in the parts stash figured id grab this odd shade of Green Jk1000B body of Ebay since i was originally looking to do a Retta/F1000 build & didn't have any H/S guitars in my collection. Just waiting on some Floyd string lock blocks to come in & she will be complete. Any one know what color this would be called?

Thank you.

Duh….. Why didn’t I think of that makes sense since it is a JDM body.

I hate such colors but the guitar looks like a nice player :toast

That immense brass block probably added 1kg to the weight, but easy to replace if it turns out too heavy.

Not going to lie it’s not what I expected and not my fav. Color for a Kramer as well as the photos on the listing made this look darker green and honestly better but I’m not going to kick it out.

I always use big Brass, Copper or Titanium blocks & Brass claw with my Floyds. Frist mod I do when I get new Floyd or new Floyd equipped guitar.

Ahh, eff the color if it plays well. I have a violet Carvin and that's pretty much the most hated color in my book. But the guitar rocks and noone's watching me at home anyway.
