Thanks. I’m looking forward to trying it once I have some time to wire it up. The neck seems kind of thick compared to my pacer and my R2 Gibswan.

lucked out on that one. pretty crazy someone would coat it in so much turtle jizz but you got the majority of the mess cleaned off.

lot of sweat equity to get it to that point but it sure is worth it. even if its not 100% perfect its still got the value and will make a great player you don't have to worry about bumping. :thumbs
I own kramers :mrgreen

Thanks. Turned out to be a decent playing guitar. I still need to set it up when get some time. Definitely has some bumps and bruises but I kind of like it that way.
