ESP VH-250 Kramer 5150 (Replica?)

$ 1950.00

I recently bought this from a Japanese auction as an ESP made In Japan Kramer 5150 model. These are commonly known as the “VH-250” model from the 1980’s and sell for over $5000. The seller is a reputable guitar dealer and swears by its authenticity. Spending hours looking at different versions, it matches many that I have seen. The only problem is that everything looks brand new. The seller says that it was completely refurbished including airbrush touch up of the paint. Let me make it clear that I am selling as a replica as I cannot verify authenticity.

Plays great, has a ‘59 Seymour Duncan pickup I believe. Finish is beautiful. About 9lbs on Bathroom scale. There is some paint chipped off on tip of headstock and a second hole on upper horn where it look likes strap hook was put at some point. Comes with case and strap as shown. Selling as-is replica. Original listing can be searched on Yahoo Japan Auction site.
