found this at a local GC, I think they may have it marked wrong, they say it's an F2000, but everything seems to point to it being a late 80's Pacer. From what I gather somewhere around 86 (when they started to use the pointed bodies) to 89 (when they started to scoop the treble horn).
It's got an OFR, and a neck plate that clearly states 'neptune, new jersey'. The thing that throws me off is the 3 way strat style switch, all the ones I've seen up till now came with 3 way toggles. Can anyone confirm what this is exactly? Any idea on how much it's worth, I'd figure it's more than the 300 bucks they're selling it for. Any info would be much appreciated.
That could be a 'real' Kramer, though by the time that one was made, both the Focus and American Series were made by ESP in Japan. I think the only real difference between them is hardware quality and maybe some fit & finish. If that's a Focus, I believe it would be a 1989 Focus 2000. You can't go wrong either way. Hell, it's got a real Floyd, which is worth probably half that much alone.
Besides any headstock logo (1989 Focuses didn't indicate that on the HS), the serial number is the easiest way to tell. An American Series guitar would have a single letter followed by four or five digits.
