    Wow! Very pretty!
    Is the angle of the switch easy to get used to? I've never seen that before, so I am intrigued.

    Looks so much cooler with a Strat head neck on it.

    Thanks everyone! Switch doesn’t really seem to be an issue. I have another guitar with the switch set the same angle caused I thought it was pretty cool in the Sambora.

    Really cool! Always liked the Sambora. (I would have gone for a Kramer neck, but I see you using aftermarkets on nearly all your mutts, so I guess you are not a fan?)

    Thank you! Yeah; finding a decently priced good condition Kramer Maple Neck is like finding a needle in a haystack and the only ones I like anymore are Beaks. At least I can get an R2, 12” Radius and Jumbo 6100 or 6000 spec neck on the aftermarket necks.

    Well done. Is that an "inspired by" or did he really play one like that?

    I saw that same e-mail. Looks pristine. There is a Creme one on eBay or Reverb in the same price range.

    Thats bad azz my friend!! Always wanted a Kramer Sambora. $2500 is way out of reach.. Personally, Id want the orig beak, but Im a kramer fanboi too. So, also being a Charvel nut, yours is awesome too! Love your pup compliment. Need to try me a RTM one of these days. Just not sure where I would put it as I MUST start thinning the herd and my keepers are dialed in..
    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    If I remember correctly, they were coil splits on the original version of the guitar.
