But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

No no no! :nono Not Eddie's, but Seymour Duncan's because of the SD in the serial number.
I strum, therefore, I can't shred!

Not all Korean models were Ply. I have a 600ST with an SB 1777 serial and it is 2-piece soft maple (best I can tell) and quite heavy.

The recessed route was done later, without great skill by me.

The Korean strikers were no doubt top of the line Korean models.XLs and ZX models likely are loaded with ply.
I don't usually find a use for this smiley :flipa , but I like so there you have it.

After the original neck plates that simply said "Striker" the serial numbers were somewhat sequential like the Ferringtons (SB, SC, SD, SE, SF Striker plates have all been documented).

Good to see an original. Stop f :cen ing taking Kramers apart and selling the pieces people!
Excellent cost performance is a strong friend of a left-handed guitarist!
