It's not a real kramer neck I can tell that, just by the shape of the headstock, and maybe I'm looking for problems but the dots on 12th look a little too far apart.

This pic must be pretty old she's still kinda attractive here

I could be wrong but I think it's just the lighting on the headstock thats making it look odd. I seem to recall there being a Kramer that was made like this. I remember seeing it before, but don't recall when/where.

I just read about that some place, it is a Focus neck and a custom body made by some guy for her, I think there was another with a Fender neck or maybe a Charvel neck.

After further research I found this:

A Kramer Superman! The guitar was made by Chris Woods and uses an old school Kramer Focus neck, Original Floyd Rose Trem, a DiMarzio Fred humbucker and is signed by Lois Lane herself Margo Kidde.

Chris had this to say:
“I had been kicking the idea of a Superman guitar around for a few years. I think I had a sketch of it on my website and Rudy http://www.rudetalk.com/ saw it and wanted me to build it for him. So I got to work on it. The one with the Kramer headstock is the first one built. There was a second one with a Strat style headstock and then I still have the bass guitar version and one 6 string guitar that was made in all natural woods. Alder and bloodwood to represent the red and yellow colors. These were all built about 5 years ago. This is before I had added a CNC machine to my shop so all the carving was done with hand routers.”

Also check out Chris’ other guitars there’s some pretty interesting work there!

I don't defend poor service but I know the problems you can have running your own business. You have to take every order that comes because you never know when the next will come, then really you work for less than min wage and you have to come up with passable excuses when you get more then you can handle and after so long you burn out.
