    The pickups on those old Kramers were pretty good. I think they were made by Schecter.

    I've played a few of the 'lawsuit' headstock guitars and the necks I've played have been very fat. Not in a bad way, but definitely not thin. I'll add one of those to the collection at some point.

    The three bolt Strats had beefy necks. Also in those days necks were built by hand and could vary. Today on CNC equipment it's more consistent. Kramer was transitioning from the aluminum necks to wood necks at that time. I have no idea if the law suit necks had the same fretboard radius as a Fender. Really it was the time people were starting transform the Strat into being a better rock and roll guitar. Eddie wasn't the only one tweaking that design.

    Here you go. Humbuckers in a Strat in 1976. Before Eddie came onto the national scene.

    I was going to go to Guitar Center out by the airport, but the CIC is in town and I didn't want to get stuck waiting for the motorcade to go by. I'll go Monday and maybe bring another one home.

    I have a Kramer Elliot Easton. Probably my favorite guitar.
