Hey new member here,long time kramer madness tho,was teen in the early 80's,had alot of kramer and lost quite a few,and once again by buying up left handed kramer parts like crazy again to fix or build existing bodies and necks i have.

so anyways after a long look online and vintage kramer i cannot find the answer to my riddle,lol.

ive got a 1 piece maple quatersawn beak neck,from a left handed voyager 82 to 84 from the kramer logo,everything seems cool,as i go to put it on my 84 pacer lefty it wont fit,the body is 2 3/16 and the neck is 2 1/4...??

cld use some other opinons on the matter,as to whats up as i know kramer was horrible at set specs,but the neck and the body are pretty close year wise.

thx in advance.

Wait, isn't the neck 1/16" too wide? If that is the case maybe fashion a sanding block and go to town with some 80 grit on both sides of the pocket.

I recall Korean neck pockets and necks were wider than those of the Japanese and American counterparts. Not trying to imply anything there, but if you have to modify anything, I am in favor of modifying the body whether it be shims or sanding or routing.

Welcome Aboard! :toast

@ kramer maniac,no no i hear ya ,nut its a amearican body for sure,i had the body and neck from when i was a kid,had a tilt 1 3/4 maple hockeystick neck on it orignally custom ordered for my 15th birthday from my dad,anyways that neck was broke in a altercation in early 90's.

was never able to find another decent replacment untill now,yet its to big,and i just cant remeber any kramer necks being 2 1/4 at the heel.

i mean i know what had to be done,just hate too screw up a vintage neck that someone else might be able to use.

Hey there, welcome to the forum. This banana neck from a 85 Baretta is 2 1/4" at the heel. It has a 1 3/4" nut width and a scarf joint that has failed. I'm in the opposite of your situation as I'm looking for a replacement neck for this that can fit the Baretta body's 2 1/4" neck pocket.

Btw- I think you referred to Full Crib as kremark and kremark as kramer maniac :roll but there are alot of kramer maniacs around, in fact, Full Crib, kremark and I are all kramer maniacs... and then there are kramer kommanders and such... :toast :headbang

I guess you have a neck with a wide R5 nut? Those were thus a bit wider overall. What's the exact nut size?
