Kramer “the Duke” Headless Electric Bass


 This is a Kramer "The Duke" headless Short-scale 4 string electric bass from 1983. Serial Number C1597. Appears to be all original. Plus Original Tweed hard shell case.

This is your chance to own a classic 1980's headless bass. A unique look feel and sound from the 1980's. This bass gets a lot of attention and is fun to play. The Short neck allows you to move more freely on stage or around your studio. It does take a few minutes to get accustomed to the neck with no head. It has a sweet mellow sound especially in the upper registers and great for new wave, metal or slapping.

Kramer bridge, Schaller tuners and 1 Volume and 1 Tone control. The scale length is 30 3/4". The fretboard is Ebonol and the tuning keys are Schallers. This Kramer bass uses regular bass strings. One humbucker pickup, and a three-way switch that allows you to select both sides of the pickup for single coil or humbucking sound.

The Black Ebonol body is in very good condition with a few minor scratches on the front and sides and the normal belt scratches on the back. The frets show some wear but still have a lot of life in them. The aluminum neck is straight and in good condition. The ebonite along the neck shows some surface cracking along the neck frame. This is cosmetic and does not affect playability or sound.
