In another thread there is a link to this fellow http://www.baileycustomguitar.com/about.html
He makes stuff you might be into ....
Maybe he as some insight .... shoot him a email maybe
I would love to get my hands on a Kramer or a Bean and just mess around ....
Jerry's Bean had a great sound I really like ..... obviously !
Good luck .....
