Price : US $129.99
You are bidding on a beautiful vintage Kramer Striker 200ST electric guitar in a metallic Candy Apple Red. This guitar has a one piece maple neck with a rosewood 22 fret fretboard
and mother-of-pearl dot inlays completing a 25 1/2' scale. It features one volume control & one tone control (although it also says volume), plus a 3-way switch. It is equipped with two humbucking pickups, probably a Seymour Duncan design, however the bridge pickup looks as if it is a hotter pickup, and it plays a little hotter as well. The tailpiece is a Floyd Rose II and is made in Germany by Schaller. It has one fine tuner replaced (black). It also has the original Kramer sealed back tuning machines. Please see the photos. The chrome neckplate reads: Kramer Neptune, NJ USA, and the serial number is: S A1491. It doesn't read made in Japan or Korea, so it could have been made in the USA, we don't know for sure. After researching, we find the headstock is considered as the 'third banana/pointy hybrid' style, which indicates a 1988 manufacture. It has a couple minor dings on the front edge, and a wear mark just below the bridge pickup. You'll find a couple more on the backside also. The photos do not do it justice, it is really in great looking shape for a 20-year old! This also comes with a padded gig bag. Buyer pays shipping. So~~Don't Worry--Bid Happy!

This headstock was only produced in late 1985 & ran into early 1986.The serial number should start with SA or SB.The Floyd Rose 2 was not fitted on Kramer guitars until 1987, & they were recess mounted,not flush mounted as this one is/was.This Guitar would have had an original FR fitted as standard.
