3 piece in 85? scratch_head
Another Kramer odd-ball mystery! :bananahead


My reaction exactly. I didn't even think those were though of in '85. The R5 or RS written on it could be initials of the guy that did the neck install maybe or just indicated it was a R5 neck. Wth? They just had a 3 piece neck laying around a full year before they came standard issue


Now considering those necks were made by ESP & this was already at the Neptune factory in '85, it quite possibly might be a prototype or one of the first if not THE first 3 piece. shrug
Is there a splice at the HS?

There is no splice. The neck feels super flat when playing. I like it, it's just different at least it feels different not just because it's a R5 . I've played plenty of those.
