Kramer The Duke (like Steinberger)
Here is a super rad headless bass that will let you get your 80s on all over again.
All original, 1983 Kramer "The Duke" 4-string, Aluminum neck bass with OHCS, made in the USA. Thats right, the case is the original hard shell and it looks lie you are bringing a piccolo flute to practice.
The pots are a bit scratchy and could use some love. I bought this for my son, but I think an Epiphone EBO might be better for balance on the leg or another type of short scale bass.
$320 shipped to your door CONUS
Might consider a trade, whatcha got? http://www.vintagekramer.com/alum.htm

Pretty cool! I have a VM Jazz with a P neck if you're interested in a trade.

Thanks for the offers twocargar and subtlstew, however, I will have to pass. Bass is still available!

Does this one have any weird grounding issues?
I had one back in the day and one reason I traded it was because it suddenly developed an audible hum that would only quit when I was touching exposed metal (strings, bridge, unpainted aluminum strip along the side of the neck) Obviously not much of a problem while playing but enough to drive you nuts in between tunes.
I took it to 2 different techs-both said it was some kind of grounding problem and neither one could find it. So I ended up trading it in on a T-40.

I havent noticed any hum or grounding issues, but I've only been playing it at home on my little ampeg ba112. I can take it to the studio and run it through the big rig to see if we get any unwanted noise. I can understanding how annoying that would be.

Seems like all the interest is coming from New England! I have an original Guild Ashbory with original bag and extra silicone strings, if your interested in a tiny-for-tinier trade. The Ashbory is in very good shape, with an updated pickup element (the real Ashworth one) installed a few years back.

I had one of these bad boys back in the day. Great little bass and really cool tone.

Played the duke for an hour this week. Other than a scratchy pot, not odd sounds or hums. Fun little bass, just no use in my projects.
