Never seen that before, good find. Not too keen on the body/pickguard but that neck and the headstock looks pretty sweet. Looks really 80's. OFR's a bonus as well.

yeah - They've done a reissue of that guitar via Epiphone, but yeah - for the 80's, Gibson had Kramer, which worked like a godsend, but when trends changed against the 80's rock, Kramer died on its' backside, so Gibson tried to rbing some new stuff out to appeal to the trends at the time. I'm guessing it didn't sell too well, because otherwise they'd still be doing it themselves rather thanm pawning it on their other companies
The rig:
Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)
Backup: Vintage AV1

Gibson didn't owe Kramer in the 80s. Kramer were the biggest guitar seller of 1986, it got killed with hair metal.

That's the MIII alright. Never heard it called the MKIII until now.
