    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.

    [DEL]$360[/DEL] $320 shipped to your door CONUS
    Might consider a trade, whatcha got?

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

    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.

    kjpollo-
    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.

    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.

    I believe it is a 31 inch scale.
