KRAMER ID help

Post by VoEggRoll » Sun Sep 24, 2023 9:50 am

I bought this Kramer years ago because it's color stood out to me in a shop, but never really asked questions beyond that.
Can anyone help me find out a bit more about this thing? It seems to be that Kramer serial numbers are...whack, so I haven't really been able to nail down it's origins.
From what I've been able to glean, it's an overseas model.
The tremolo is "KRAMER" stamped, but also says "Licensed under Floyd-Rose patents."
The pickups appear to be generic just saying "dual raill" and "quad rail."
It has a reverse headstock.
And the plate where the neck is bolted in has the Kramer headstock logo, slogan, and serial number (S00010365).
Any and all help is appreciated!

Looks like a Yo Striker FR422-S
Here's a possible link

These were made by Samick in Korea

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

That looks like the one!
Not surprised it's $219. It certainly plays like it lol.
Nuclear Yellow is a great name for a color.
