Mick Mars is my hero, and I was seriously jonesing for a Floyd Rose Tele when this beauty entered my life.

A 1987 Classic II in a color that speaks for itself.

This was my first physical introduction to vintage Kramer, and I couldn't have been any luckier. I picked this up on Black Friday last year for under $700, and it basically hasn't left my hands since. The neck is slim yet round, and the frets are short and wide which I've come to prefer. The switching is very cool too; 3 on/off toggles and a switch for using the selectors or just the humbucker. I've always sucked at using a 5-way blade in the heat of a song, so having the in-betweens a single switch away from the bridge is wonderful.

Image

Speaking of the humbucker, topping off my luck was this delightful sight.

Couldn't possibly be happier. I've really bonded with it and related to it's quirkiness. And inspired by the color, I named it Buttercup.

Really nice Tele! :headbang :hit

I got one too, not Kramer but almost identical:

The 5-way switch placement is a bit stupid, but I love it nonetheless.

Oh and welcome :toast

Very nice score , enjoy! I too have been jones'in for a Floyded Tele for some time now, but haven't been able to find one at a great price as you have...so I've placed an order for a custom neck and body, and will be building my own (soon to come)!

Congrats brother, she's a keeper. :thumbs :toast
