Prices are all over the place. I sold mine (black finish, original pickups) for $800 a few months ago.

And today could fetch $1200
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Not saying you could've gotten more, just stating how krazy the prices have gone in a short time.... :dollar :dollar

Seems to be the case in general, across all brands. Crisis craziness I assume.

Presumably that's why it's called a pro axe.

So there is no more misinformation on ID-ing this Proaxe. It iis Japan Market only model. I am very familiar with the Japan only stuff. Almost all Proaxe 's in Black sparkle have blank Neck plate (no letter ne #'s) Very common,. The pups are ESP factory pups, Direct message me and i can send you more pics and info on the Japan blank plates etc.
