since I used that silver Kramer's neck to make a partsbass, I really didn't need another plywood korean junk bass but it was like the silver one....too cheap to pass up.

So here's a ZX70 in all white. This one is a different year as the headstock is way different. It is what it is, the pickup is more of a microphone than my sm58, and the zero fret is chipped in all 4 grooves..but you know what?, it plays fine after I set it up I'll throw my extra Jackson picup in there this weekend, since I wanted to try it out at practice to see how it sounds in the mix.

i cant get over the angle of the strings from the nut to the heads.

some of my favorite basses have been $100 planks.

well with the head shaped like that it's a wonder Kramer didn't put brass nuts in EVERYthing, since it was a given that the nut would chip.

even the other "newer" 80's Kramers I have that don't have that silly headstock on them is still the same with the string angles..chipped nut grooves.

Hmm yeah...I remember that the Gibson Explorer basses had them too for a similar reason.

the higher end models had the brass...most of the cheapies got plastic which I guess would last for years anyway. I never had one new to see how long it lasts under my playing it before the huge break angle started chipping the nut grooves.
when I change the strings and nut finally on this white one, I'll try it without the tree like I did to my other one but with the head so far down, I'm gonna bet it will have to stay.

As do all the USA Spectors (the Euros might too, but I'm pretty sure they don't)
