Thats a strat-head Pacer in that picture you posted, tough to find. '83 Pacer Specials have the 'beak' headstocks like mine. Here's a photo.....



They pop up from time to time on Ebay and Craigslist but are also not easy to find especially with original parts. You gotta be careful, lots of parts mutts out there being passed off as Kramers with aftermarket necks and so on. If you really wanna get one then be patient and join the Kramer Forum, lots of info from the guys there.

Good to see Kramer Love on this forum! Late 80s & early 2000s Kramers are great guitars!

Never played a Gibson/Kramer Imperial, but I own 2 early 2000s Gibson/Kramers and they are excellent guitars with quality parts.

Thanks! I actually got the job so I'm going to start looking more seriously into grabbing an 80s Kramer. Always wanted one.
