Wow, that brings back memories.
First dude that I ever saw play guitar close-up was in middle school, probably 1977. A guy from the local music store (The Soundboard) came to my music class to give us a little guitar demonstration. He had a DMZ2000 and I remember staring at the split headstock while he was playing.

I don't see too many of those original Kramers around anymore.

I remember them from back in the day. My recollection is that they were a neat looking novelty but not all that much. I recall them being harsh sounding. Since I was a drummer I didn't spend much time considering the technical merits of the thing, I just knew it had the same effect on me as fingernails down a blackboard. Back then I was more of a Les Paul through a Marshall stack kind of guy when it came to pleasing guitar sounds.

I played shortly in a band with a guy who had a Kramer and it came and went quickly. It was replaced by a B. C. Rich Bich. The Bich is still around and I think I might get to play it this weekend. He may bring over the old B.C. Rico instead.
