    So Epiphone owns Kramer now, and they’ve reissued some classics and I know they’re not the same, but I’m thinking of a Nightswan or Snake Sabo signature, aways liking charvels still, and Ibanez has reissued some of the old RGs. Schecter has a cool explorer with floyd and sustainiac, and it’s a crazy purple.

    decisions decisions.

    Oh you could do a Warmoth build for that. For a shredder axe go bottom up and trick the bitch out

    Love the model 2, gigged one for years!! Rarely see them anymore and they’re pricey now, I think I paid 300 (with case) for my 1988. I had a Dean Hollywood body on it for a short bit, seen here.

    How about the EVH 5150? If they ever get them in stock again, I'm jumping on the Neon Pink one.

    Eh it’s a Kramer style, it counts.

    I had a Hamer Steve Stevens that was pink….. almost had a huge brawl over that when one guy suggested I was gay for having a pink guitar, he was mad his GF was dancing in front of me. I suggested he let her go backstage with me and she could report on my orientation afterwards…..
