Comments: I bought this bass never having seen one before. I played a Precision for 30 years and thought it might be something I'd whip out at a gig for a hoot. Boy was I wrong!!! I've been playing this one non stop since I held it in my arms the first time. It is flawless and the action is low & fast. Played through an Ampeg B25B stack, as legend has it, once made a patron throw up form an open E sustained ring. It's heavy but worth it's weight in gold.!!

Comments: The Kramer plant was a couple of mile away growing up, and I know many of the people who owned it and worked there.

I am glad I brought this beauty back home to NJ. The bass itself appears to have rarely been played, almost new-old stock. Even has the pickup rings!

The tone is one of a kind. It has a really cool quality if you dial the bridge pickup to all bass and the neck pickup to all treble. Just way cool.

Warning, this thing weighs, literally, a ton. If you are going to play it all nite, be ready! But it sustains like a piano. The action is the lowest I've ever been able to get.

I gave tone a 9 only because the original pickups are a little weak, and the A string just doesn't have as much power as the rest. I had Paul Unkert give it a once over and it didn't really improve there.

All in all, whether a lumie or not, it is one amazing bass. Never letting this one go.

Comments: I love this bass. It's beautiful, great tone and a great conversation piece. I recommend light strings on it, as the necks are sensitive to high tension and tend to bow with a heavier gauge. Pick-up placement not optimal for slap/funk.
