    Default Kramer Ad Franky replica

    Finally got this in my hands. I always wanted a replica of the Kramer Ad Franky. My guy knocked it out of the park with this one. :thumbsup:

    Custom cut body with the big horns.













    let's be real...EVH was GOD

    Runnin' might put too much focus on the fact that there's a little kid on bass - knuck

    I see three bona fide ROCK GODS, and then somebody's kid. - CaboTime

    That is undeniably the BEST replica of that particular guitar I've ever seen. Makes mine look like wet dogshit.

    As far as I know there was no "original run"...these were just Ed's guitars. The Vitas Gerulaitus Kramer was one that was similar that was probably built around this time (of course this one is owned by the owner of The Music Zoo), but the Kramer Ad Franky was the first one as far as I know.

    Oh really , eh ? Thanks garbeaj .
    I honestly thought that some of those guitars made it out to the public . I have no info to support that though - it's just an assumption that I had , based on the ads themselves ...

    Glad you cleared that up for me . I was wondering why I'd never seen one pop up on eBay etc. LOL
    Cheers

    Default Kramer Ad Franky replica

    If you haven't, check out this page on VintageKramer about Walker guitars...

    http://vintagekramer.com/company25.htm

    But yeah, I can't say that any were ever sold though. Possible there are prototypes out there though.
