can you maybe explain to me why it sucks so bad?
It is the same electronically as the explorer body style that every one else had me look at.

The bridge sucks, the pickups suck...its just real cheap quality stuff..like the bolt on neck. Don't get me wrong though, Kramer guitars can be made pretty brutal. But not that one. I'd save up for a neck-thru NJ series Warlock. Even if you don't like the shape, its still one of the best guitars you can get for the bucks. That or an Ibanez RG model guitar. Those, like the Warlock, come with Floyd Rose bridges and decent pickups.

if you like that so much, just save up for a jackson RR, it has the body style, and it'll have even better electronics, and will come with a floyd rose.

Kramer was a well respected guitar company in the 80's and the even gave gibson a run for there money. then they went outta buiness. I guess the 80'd looks died in the 90's But now gibson owns them lol. There quad rail pickups r pretty dman nice for stock pickups. I have one of there explorer bodys with the quad rail pickups, i cna get any sound from a single coil to a kickass bassy humbucker. And i got a jackson neck on it But that guitar does look like pure shit, and the pickups r extremly clsoe together, y even have 2 if there side by side??

the pickups are so close together because its a middle pickup, and a bridge pickup. Like on LP customs, they have 3 pickups. This is just like that, minus the 3rd neck pickup.

It's a fucking hardtail, you twat.

The axe could be a pretty damned good one if you replace the pickups (and probably the tuners).

No really? Looked kinda like a Floyd Rose to me...









Hardtails suck. Especially for metal.

I hope you're kidding about the Floyd....

Whether you go hardtail or floyd is all about personal preference.

if i were u i'd ask at your local shop to see if they could get any in. Then you have a chance to play on some of the kramers and see whether they are for you. Thats what i did and i now own two beasts

It's a nice guitar, but it's also more than double the price of the axe he's looking at.

I know but has a much better sound, is a better guitar and is more than $140 off the list price. Im just suggesting he think about it.

the d tune that comes with certain kramers is crap though because it doesnt work with a floating bridge like a floyd unless u fix it down. So i took it off and sold it
