I just won this off Ebay.

No whammy arm though.:icon_sad: Will a standard floyd arm fit?

Score!:thumbs:
Looks like maybe a MusicYo Baretta - any collared arm will work.

Just got emailed the serial: S99060892
Anyone know what number means what. I guess the 99 stands for 1999 which would mean its a musicYo right

P.S Lovin the quad rail pickup

Searched the musicyo website and found out it’s a Kramer Striker FR400S

Hey nice score! That's one of the nice Yo Strikers. Yup, made in June (06) of 1999 (99) 892nd one made. Alot of people don't dig the Quad Rail. But for heavy rock and metal its pretty damn good.

It only costed $150USD!!! I was looking at buying a washburn kc-40 for $250USD but I'm glad i could get this.

Only real problem is that the floyd is missing the collar insert for that tremolo arm to screw onto. I've had a look around and it doen't seam like it'll be hard to get one. Are the kramer ones(collars) different to other floyds?

Nice ya kramer, I had the same one I bought back in 1999.
I liked the push pull pots they put on for coil tapping. I left the stock pup in there, sounded ok to me.
These are great guitars for the money!!!!! I paid $163 after shipping and then got a $250 trade in on it :)

edit looks like a jay and silent bob fan :)

It Finally arrived!!!!! Such a nice guitar for under $200 dollars.
I don't know why i thought i would be different to everyone else's take on the quad-rail, but i have to agree it's just muddy and i can't stand it. My 570 copy has better pickups!!!!

finally got a camera so figured i'd post up some pix
I ended up selling the quad-rail and used the money to buy a GFS crunchy rails.

Very nice!

You should be able to buy a Floyd arm with the assembly for around $12 at Stew Mac. If that's the same Kramer Floyd they were putting on the Strikers until recently, it will fit fine.

Haha bit old now but still, I ended up finding a trem arm with collar on Evilbay and all fit nicely. I've since got rid of the Crunchy rails and fitted a Seymore Duncan Live wire 18 volts of raw power!!!!

Ha! My bad. I didn't notice that post was from a year ago! LOL

Out of curiosity, what didn't you like about the Crunchy Rails? I had one in a Striker and liked it pretty well...
