    Music go round has a mint Vanderburg for a G. I'd buy it but I didn't like the color.

    The 80's / 90's Charvel neck is the ideal for me.
    I've only ever made 2 guitars and one was a copy of a Charvel Model 4, with my custom options: set neck & Fusion body styling.
    I had to sell my original Model 4 to afford parts for the one I made.
    I still have the Model 4 copy and now have a Fusion Custom to go with it.
    Lovely guitars!

    At the end of the Kramer, Neptune, NJ era, Kramer advertised in the Asbury Park Press of an open to the public weekend factory sale.

    Everything had a price and everything had to go.

    Whatever didn't sell was crated and sent off to Victor Litz; Outlaw Guitars and other dealers.

    I bought a ton of parts; bodies; necks and completed guitars.

    Many dealers were pissed at Kramer because the public got stuff as inexpensive or cheaper than dealer cost.

    I was happy.

    I got to meet many guitar savvy people and developed friendships.

    I thought it was scummy of dealers putting together Frankenkramers........telling buyers that these guitars were one offs.

    Many of these guitars had the wrong scale necks..........these SOB's didn't care that they were screwing buyers.........theye were getting $'s.

    With all this BS, I managed to buy some cool "rare" Kramers.


    My Canadian Kramer.

    Probably built by La Si Do
