Presenting, the Kramer “1984” guitar. A reissue of the custom Kramer guitar used by Eddie Van Halen during his “1984” World Tour with Van Halen.

As a result, the serial number “C” (for California) “5150” was stamped on the neck bolt-plate and therefore, it came to be known simply as, the Kramer 5150.
Although not his first Kramer, t
