It comes with an original hardshell case featuring the Kramer logo. Get this fantastic instrument while you can.

CONDITION:
This guitar is in very good condition and 100% original except for the strap pin at the bottom which was replaced with a new old stock Danelectro 1960's strap pin made in the same factory as this guitar in Neptune, NJ. This Kramer 250G is pretty close to mint. There is no wear on the body and only about four small surface scrapes on the back of the neck. All the electronics work properly and the instrument sounds great.

TUNERS:
The all original, six, closed back, individual Schaller tuners with metal buttons function smoothly and are in good working order. Description from VintageSilvertones.com

NECK:
It has a straight neck attached to the body by three hex bolts underneath a narrow aluminum plate that features the serial number, place of production and strap pin. The neck has 22 specially designed "center-touch" frets with a zero fret on an ebanol fingerboard with aluminum dot inlays and a 25" scale. The ebanol fingerboard has the look and feel of ebony but the folks at Kramer say it will not crack, warp, chip or shift. This guitar has a patented "tension roller nut" designed to eliminate tension and sticking when the string is bent or stretched so that it returns smoothly to its original pitch. The neck is kept straight by its aluminum skeletal T design which also gives the guitar great sustain. The aluminum neck has slots for walnut wood inlays to provide a natural warmth for the player's hand that the aluminum cannot. There are four small surface scrapes on the back of the neck that does not effect the playablity of the instrument. The aluminum, tuning fork headstock has no wear. The action is fast and the neck feels good to play.

PICKUP:
There are two metal, single coil pickups embossed with the Kramer logo. The neck pickup has a clean, rich, full strat sound. The bridge has a full, clean, crispy, edgy tone. There is one volume knob and one tone knob effecting both pickups plus a toggle to switch to neck, bridge or both pickups. Using the controls, the player can acheive a wide variety of tones suitable for a myriad of musical styles. The pots are clean and in good condition. All guitar electronics work properly.
