Probably.
Honestly, haven't seen anyone that sells them, though.
Gibson Kramer's guitar page posted a picture of this on their Instagram page, advertising that these were for sale.
I commented asking, "Where can we buy them?"
They responded, "At any local Epiphone dealer."
Yeah, I don't think so. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY at my local "Epiphone Dealer"! dielaughing

Time for a small Gibson Kramer rant:
Gibson needs to get their head in the game and figure out that, "Hey! Licensed Floyds stink compared to real Floyds! Maybe we should consider those!" I don't care if I have to spend a bit more for a real Floyd. I want a Floyd Rose that will last for years and years. Licensed Floyds are not the way to go.
(I know they sell some guitars with real Floyds, but they are very hard to find. Most have the "Kramer" branded tremolo)
They also REALLY need to increase the heel width of the guitar.
Bends on the high strings near the later frets are near impossible without slipping off the neck. In fact, even one wrong movement up there, and you are sure to slip off.
Gibson also needs to focus on giving these guitars to music stores. I have never seen a Gibson Kramer that was "New" for sale in a store. By putting them in stores, they will be able to sell a ton more than they normally would, because most people want to play a guitar to see how it feels before purchasing.

Sorry about the rant. LOL Had to get that off my chest.

I am hearing that Gibson is in trouble financially, so it might be that the Kramer line is the least of their concerns right now.
Good analysis, tho!

Now, I kinda disagree with that, and here is why:
Kramer had not done anything since March of 2016 on any of their social media platforms.
All of a sudden, in mid 2017, Kramer starts posting things again, announcing new guitars, and attempting to sponsor new people.
To me, it sounds as if Gibson is using Kramer as a way of producing more cash flow.

I could be wrong though. I admit, I know very little about business. XD

dielaughing , ... hell, yeah, that´s exactly what any vintage collector is after. A 2016 MII guitar :bong .

Regarding the pics on the Kramer FB page, there was one answer hitting it on the head: "Always on your page but NEVER in stores."
