PLEASE DO NOT mistake picture glare for flaws.. If you think you're seeing something not mentioned in this listing, please ask!!

There are lots of pics, so when you receive it, its exactly what you expected, if not better. No surprises with this sale.. Buy with confidence!

Here's The Run Down:

This is a very nice example of a USA Made Kramer NightswanThis IS NOT a reissue. It was obviously purchased, properly stored and not played a bunch over the years. This one has a "F 9XXX" serial number, which puts it in the 88-89 range. There are only average signs of age and play (see pics). I don't believe there is anything other than what you can see in the pictures. Flaws to describe would be minor finish swirling, light scratching, normal play wear and some chips around the edges. There is a very small and short hairline crack on the back of the headstock coming off the high e tuner screw (pictured). I tried to take really good pics, so you can judge its overall condition for yourself (see pics). There are NO breaks or repairs and needs nothing but a new owner to rock with! All electronics operate as they should and sound incredible. There is minor scratching on the back, but nothing I would actually classify as buckle rash. The fret wear is minor and needs no attention what so ever. The Black Hardware is in great condition showing minor signs of discoloration. If your looking for a super clean example of a 80's USA Kramer Nightswan in a great color & plays awesome to boot, this would make a great addition to your collection!

Changes to mention:

Bridge Pickup Changed: Seymour Duncan PAT2B

Strap Buttons: Non Original Strap Lock Buttons

Bridge: Original Replaced With Newer Original German Floyd Rose (same as original, but newer)

Allen Wrenches: Not Originals

All else appears original

Some Good Info From Vintage Kramer:

The Kramer Nightswan was a signature model for Vivian Campbell, the lead guitarist in Def Leppard, who also played for Ronnie James Dio, Riverdogs, Whitesnake, and a few other bands here and there in the 80's. The Nightswan actually has an interesting background that most people haven't heard about, that really makes this instrument far from being a Kramer designed instrument.

Nightswan Specs:

*Mahogany Body with non-traditional Strat shape, and lower horn cut out for higher fret access

*Two Humbuckers, Seymour Duncan Full Shred and JB (bridge changed to SD PAT2B)

*One Volume Knob and a three way selector switch

*Original Floyd Rose Tremolo (black) flush mounted

*24 3/4" scale neck, R1 nut size, diagonal dot inlays, 6105 frets (tall and narrow)

*Ebony Fretboard

*Schaller Tuners

*Non-Traditional Kramer reverse, angled bananna headstock, with big "K" to small "r" logo and Nightswan logo

*Can be set up for extremely low action

This Incredible Kramer USA Nightswan sounds and plays incredible! Although I think its set up great, everyone has their own preferences. If your not happy with its set up, it will be your responsibility and cost to have it set up to your liking. The neck is straight and the truss rod operates as it should. Freshly and professionally set up.

The Included Original Hard Case is in very good condition overall for a 80s Case. All latches, hinges and handle operate as they should without issue. It will have marks, tears, scuff and other wear and tear from moving it around and use, but still a great original case in very usable/respectable condition.

Everything operates as it should, and has never had, nor does it have any breaks or repairs unless noted above.

Make sure you view all of the pics and ask questions if you have any concerns before buying.
