    Wow, great to see these. Poor quality black and white pics of the same room have been out there for years, but these are awesome!

    I see the purple pacer with all the colored tape on it, the bumblebee, the shark, and I think a glimpse of the snake guitar in there!

    Always wondered what happened to all those R/W/B Kramer bodies in that stack!

    The black/white kramer with the integrated VH logo is really killer. And it looks like the striped EBMM Silhouette is in there!

    I don't remember seeing the white guitar with the thin black stripes. Have we seen that one before?

    I don't recall seeing either of those black/white Kramers before, this may be their public debut! This is also the first pic I've seen of the Silhouette besides the studio-ish shot of it from EBMM.

    Btw, thanks for posting these!

    Those two b&w ones can be seen in this old pic from VintageKramer.com


    Borrowed from: http://vintagekramer.com/5150e.htm

    But these new pics definitely give much more detail! Looks like a Kramer Pacer Deluxe (or maybe a "The Pacer" since it's SSS) and a Pacer Special.

    Also in the new pics I see the Kramer with the Transtrem installed on it. It's the one with the black pointy headstock.

    Very cool! I never knew there were TWO prototype Ripleys! And I always thought that Vox teardrop guitar was painted red...shocking to see that it was green!

    I think Ed didn't like the first Ripley he got because he said it was too complicated. I guess there were knobs for effects and other things and he didn't know how to use it. So he asked for a simpler version, and that's the one he used on Top Jimmy.

    If you look carefully in this one you can see the OU812 Steinberger...



    It's behind the yellow double-neck facing the wall, but you can see its reflection in the mirror towards the right.

    Great catch! As observant as I am I would never have noticed that!

    I've never heard that story...but as I look at the two guitars, one has two single coil pickups and a humbucker in the bridge and the other (which is the Ripley that he has commonly been photographed with and the one that I think is the Ripley used on the recordings of "Ripley" and "Top Jimmy") has three humbuckers with cream colored pickup rings. The pickup switching and pan pots appear identical fromm what I can see in these pics.

    Yep...and you can see a softcase with the "Steinberger" logo on it directly behind the red and white striped double-neck.

    Great shots and great observances gentlemen !
    I just noticed how the Marshall head is just barely sitting on top of that office chair . Doesn't seem like a lot of protection , especially on a rolling chair
