Comments: What a wild guitar!! I have a thing for Kramer's after first putting my hands on one. The Duke is a one of a kind classic. Patterned after that "other" headless guitar, it can hold it's own in any Rock N Roll band. It looks a little strange..OK..a lot strange( resembling a black boat paddle), has split DMZ pickups, one volume and one tone control. The shape of this guitar takes some getting used to and whatever you do, be careful when switching over to a standard model bass during a gig...The difference in scale and optical illusion of where notes should be can be distracting to say the least. But overall a real show stopper. I play through a big Ampeg rig and it BOOMS! If you can pick one up do it.
