    Be interesting to see what they are asking for it...

    https://www.rockstarsguitars.com/pro...-serial-c0176/
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    A guitar with provenance like that.

    Itís gotta be six figures. Easily. If not more.


    One thing thatís also interesting is the realization, when you see a guitar youíve seen in music videos or live videos up close either in person or in pictures, that itís just a guitar. Itís not some elusive, magical, mythical thing.

    Just looks like a well played and loved Kramer.

    agreed bro.... it'll be at least 6 figures for sure. Definitely one of the more special Kramers out of all of them that go up for auction. Plus its the last one Paul Unkert built. I had dinner with Paul about 5 years ago and he was telling me about that one how it was his fist rear loaded striped guitar he did hahaha. He was proud of that one. Basically the 5150, the 1984 and the HFT were Eds 3 main Kramers for the 84 tour and thats why this one is so special cause Ed actually played it on tour and it was one of the main ones. Its been in private hands since the early 90s but still is one of the special ones. I just had to upgrade my neckplate on my replica HFT now that I see the serial number on the real one hahaha.

    Rob,

    that collection is worth a mini website that gives a little detail on each one.

    I turned my 1985 MIJ Kramer Focus 1000 into a 5150 with a different neck and sold it to some guy in NJ who was going to hang it in a bar. If I would have known that, I certainly wouldn't have spent the extra cash on the proper neck, duncan pickup or German Floyd! Space tape was very hard to find back then (2002).

    I did keep the original Kramer backplate on it, so maybe I might find it one day?

    Cool Kramers!

    Just out of curiosity, does your black and white Franky have a floyd on it? If so, where did you get an arm with the plastic tip like a Fender bridge? Thanks!
    I'm just here.
