Any chance this could come with solid claw inlays and reverse headstock ? If so, I'd be all over it.

The purple one looks cool, but can't he come up with something more new and original. Not crazy like the Turbalance, but just some more modern than repeating the same thing over and over again.

The side of the road is littered with guys who thought they'd come up with something new. The guys who buy new guitars don't want something "different" They want the same ol safe thing or what the guy in the video plays...

Agree 100% , its why we spend big $$$ to buy up those old American Kramers ..

Nothing new plays like em.

Jon what do you think about the RR2 price range ?
for me it was a toss up between the new stagemaster sm-1 or the GKC RR2 .

I can't get past the RR part, to me that means Randy Rhodes and his V. Didn't you just sell a hum - 2 single Stagemaster? And you want to buy a Korean model of the same?

Those are some intensely cool paint jobs. I really liked the original Russian Roulette, but there were a few cheesy things about it I didn't like (like the little fake bullet in the neckplate? come on.) Interesting that the earlier H/H ones have recessed floyds and these later shots are H/S/S with on-top floyds. Why two mini switches? One for coil tap and the other for what? It can't be phase right? I've never seen a phase switch on an HSS config before.

This probably isn't that big of a deal to a lot of you, but those last few pics are HUGE for me! Maple Fretboards!!! OH THANK GOD!! If only they would do maple WITH binding. I'd be in HEAVEN. Nobody does that. It sucks.

also it looks like the headstock is a little more "droopy" than the normal kramer pointy headstock... is that just me? or is that how GKG is using the headstock without Gibson going crazy on them?
