This is a 1979 Kramer with an aluminum reinforced neck. Ebonol (ebony synthetic) fingerboard with original Kramer designed single coil pickups. This guitar is missing the original volume and tone knobs but one of them has been replaced with a standard speed knob (the picture is from before I lost the volume knob, both pots work fine). There is also a small hole in the pickguard where someone added an out of phase switch but it has since been reverted to original specs. These guitars are getting harder and harder to find, especially with the Kramer designed pickups. You can read more about this series of guitars here: http://www.vintagekramer.com/alum.htm I had this guitar set up and appraised at Sam Ash Music in King of Prussia and it plays wonderfully. It's been sitting in the OHSC for the past year as I don't play it much. This could be the answer to that Travis Bean or EGC you've been pining for! The case comes with the guitar as well as a nylon strap. Please, email me with any further questions and offers. I'll gladly provide more detailed pictures should you require them. I'm hoping to move this guitar fast so please, don't hesitate to make a fair offer. The only trade I would accept would be an American Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster.
