Just picked up a rare and cool 80's Kramer American Shred Machine (pics)

Hey Guys,

I have always liked the 1980's Kramer American guitars and was lucky enough to pick up a neck through 1987 Kramer Liberty 86 American of which just a few where ever made and are considered as the "Holy Grail" of the American made Kramers.

This one is supposed to be mint and stored for the last 15 years with no strings on it! It should be a good bookend for my JEM10 as they look similar and I hope is sounds killer with the neck through and the Duncan JB in it.

IMO Kramer American guitars are really nice guitars and have a cool vibe to them as well. Forgive the pics but they are from the auction I won. I will post some proper pics of it when I get it in if anyone wants to see it.

RG

I really had no idea what to pay for it and ended up getting it for $1025 plus $45 for shipping which I am happy about. The list price in 1986 was $1499 which bought allot of guitar 21 years ago!
