Ok. So here it is. This guitar was bought new 1/30/85. It has the case candy with it. Originally it had the white painted banana style head stock. Well the scarf joint did what 90% of them did and started to come apart. He sent it back to Kramer and they called him and said they had a new neck coming out and asked if he would mind if they replaced his neck with the new one. Of course he didn't mind and the rest is history. Kramer Block logo, seems wide to me, not like a R2, maybe a R5? The body has the cutout for the truss rod, the neck has the truss rod at the headstock. They sent him the truss rod cover, which is still in the plastic, and the neck was not drilled for the cover screw to be put on. It's been in the case for over 10 years now. It's a C plate baretta. So far I need to clean it and set it up but it's in great shape other than the very tip of the pointy headstock having some wear from the case.
On with the pics

Freakin' love it! I'm pretty sure it's a R5 though. Not a scratch on the body at all and there is 0 fret wear. Woohoo!!!

Pulled the nut. It is a R5. We're the naners R5s? The neck is flawless playing though. Different, but plays awesome.

It has a recessed Floyd? Can't say if it's factory or modified though.
