    Can someone tell me where to find a vintage kramer neck, like the one seen in the Jump video? I looked at grguitars.com, but i think they only had the banana headstock. I'm in no rush, but just starting a franky project and I want that style peghead if possible. Any website or other custom company would be cool. Thanks

    Try ebay, they pop up on there from time to time. I have an old Pacer with that headstock, but I have a Rosewood fretboard not Maple. But I have seen all Maple ones like that on there. Go for $100-$200.

    Copy that, and correct me if I'm wrong, but you're probably going to have to sand one of those early Kramer maples, IF you wan't it bare...

    That's just what I've noticed
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    Look for another maple neck, and then shape it to the Kramer profile you seek. You can also find Kramer decals if you're quick enough. They ususally come and go in spurts of three-day auctions. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    Here is a neck just itching to get a new headstock profile...

    You could pick up one of these and have a Tele project to work on once you finish the Jump guitar.

    Are those necks any good?

    I have a tele which is fast becoming a frankentele of sorts, and I could use a new neck on it after I get the SD hotrails in [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    </font>[/QUOTE]I have one of those necks like that, that came off of one of their 99 dollar strat jobs that I still use on my parts strat. The one on that Tele job has locking tuners and a graphite nut. All in all I think that guitar is an unbelievable value considering the quality of wood and the hardware.

    Classic Kramer is the name of the peghead you want
    www.greggrogersguitars.com will sell a neck with the Classic Kramer peghead that is what I used for the Jump version of the Franky

    Fuck that and Classic Kramer wasn't even listed, but compared to the other necks around $200 you can do a hell of a lot more price shopping for an excellent neck. You can even buy a Kramer Focus for a hundred bucks from Musicyo.com, and get an actual Kramer neck! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Kramer classic is the name of that style of peghead, it probably isn't listed by name but it they have picture of it. Also it depends on how accurate he wants to be, if he doesn't care about accuracy then there are tons of necks that will work, if he wants to be accurate then finding an old original Kramer Classic or getting one from Rogers is what he wants.

    Try this:

    http://www.vh-guitarstore.com/necks.htm

    The "Classic" is $165, and I've found the site's proprietor to be a nice gentleman.
