    So my loving wife just gave me a new digital camera and I decided to snap some pics of the guitar room for all to enjoy

    thanks Mike, it's a new room/home for the guitars too. They've been in storage for a couple of months, it's good to get them out again.

    Just a guess but I'd say probably a Travis Bean based on the headstock shape and what appears to be aluminum in the head stock (they had aluminum necks as I recall).

    I'm guessing it's an aluminum neck Kramer...DMZ, they made basses like that as well...very cool!

    Thanks guys.

    As far as the guitar on next to the piano, that's a 1977 Kramer 450G, based on the travis bean design but like half the price.

    As far as the skull guitar, that's sambone. No I didn't name it, the guy who built it for me did so it stuck. It's perfect when I'm in the mood to play some Dokken or just puton some spandex

    Sometimes I just sit in there and gaze up at the walls. It's a beautiful thing. I just got the room cleaned out, new carpet, new desk and some art work of course. It's my home away from home inside my home if that makes any sense????

    "You've got alot of great guitars there, but the skull-guitar is absolutely disgusting."

    So are your manners.

    "I was gonna ask what a polite way to say that skull guitar is flatly retarded, but you sort of said it for me."

    The polite thing to do is just keep your mouth shut.


    I, for one, am not ashamed of the 1980's.
    Here's another "disgusting" "retarded" remnant of that decade.

    very cool, I'm more of an explorer fan myself but a good V is always a welcome addition to any collection.

    Wasn't it also about half the weight? I owned a Travis Bean from that exact year and it was a true brick.

    BTW, I like the range of your instruments. Its nice to see so much different ground covered in one collection. And I think happen to think the skull is fun.

    I Jim,

    I honestly can't say if the kramer is lighter, I've never played a travis bean but I would assume you are correct, didn't the TB have the neck running half way throught the body? The kramer mounts the neck similar to a fender style pocket but with a recessed metal plat and 3 hex head bolts.

    Thanks for the compliment, I'm more of a Gibson type guy but I keep my options open. And I like the skull too :) because of all the carvings it makes it super light and fun to play.
