that's new (old) guitar day.  i just bought a guitar i've been looking for for 20 years.  a kramer 450G.
i had one, back in 92. i loved it!  i pawned it to pay rent, and was not able to get it back.  i'd been looking for another ever since.  i picked this one up a couple weeks ago. it's a walnut/maple sammich body with an aluminum neck and headstock and ebolite board. the neck is wide, flat, and heavy. completely not what i usually play.  but i'm adapting.  this example is in pretty good shape

i suspect that if they did, kramer would sue their pants off.   ;D
there were other shapes with this design, also by kramer.  THOSE are much more rare than what i have.

Congrats!

That's one of those trip guitars. Once, in a band I played with for couple of years, bass player played a bass guitar like that one. And there was at least one local celebrity with a 6 string.
