I wanted to show my Kramer Paul Dean made by Larrivee in 12/1987, for Kramer.  It is similar to the Larrivee RS4 of the same period.  It has Seymour Duncan pups and a Floyd Rose tremolo.  I like collecting the older Larrivee electrics.   Does anyone else have an older
Larrivee electric?

I have a black LT-1. A lot like the cream coloured on you show there. I lurve it. Matthew Larrivée called it hideous so I named it Hidecki the Hideous. The bird of prey headstocks grow on you.

Thanks for sharing that - interesting.  I knew Larrivee had made some of the Neal Schon signature model, but I didn't know these Kramers were made by Larrivee!

I too luv em gotta disagree with Matthew on his assessment of the RS4's from the 80's. Many were truly special. Maybe not in the league of today's RS 4 BUT very nice.

Here's mine:

I agree.  I believe that alot of the 80's models were special indeed.  What model is yours?  Can we see the rest of it, especially the head stock?  Do you have any other info on it?

I also like the iroc blue color.  You definitely have a looker there.  I like the shark fin fret markers, they go well with the head stock shape.
