American Kramer - Custom Snakeskin & Stone Finish!
Up for auction is an American Kramer solid mahogany guitar body, serial #G 0939. Genuine one-piece snakeskin top on textured stone finish! Purchased in semi-rough condition, this body already had the snakeskin top, and had been sealed with a thin satin coating. The neck plate had been glued to the body with a very strong adhesive. I say 'very strong' because I was unable to remove it and was forced to mask around it for painting. THIS BODY WAS HAND FINISHED AND DOES NOT REPRESENT A MASS PRODUCED FACTORY FINISH. That being said it came out killer and I hate to sell it!
The body flaws were smoothed, and the stone finish was applied and allowed to harden for seven days. This was followed by several (at least 10) full body coats of gloss. Wishing to maintain the texture of the snakeskin, I stopped there.
I believe, from the low serial number, that this body is an 80's era Kramer, and had the nicks and dings that accompany a piece of this age. After some research, I also believe that it may be a Nightswan.
I hope you enjoy this body as much as I enjoyed customizing it. This is a hand finished piece that promises to play beautifully once it is set up with your choice of neck and electronics hardware.
