Kramer Striker?

So, I posted my B-52 head on Craigslist for $250, and a guy emails me offering his Kramer Striker and a Marshall MG100 head ( ). It sounds pretty good to me, but when I find his post on CL, I start to wonder if it's really worth it.

(Here's the link: http://peoria.craigslist.org/msg/3276086935.html )

It looks pretty nice (dat top) but it's missing the truss rod cover, it has Ibanez pickups, which would definitely need to be replaced, and he says he got it at a police auction (which sounds slightly questionable).

So, my question is, would it be worth it? Getting a new truss rod cover, which might be hard considering 198? Kramer might be hard to find a cover for, new pickups, and all that fun stuff might make it not worth it.

Thanks for any input.

Honestly I would go for it myself if I could, that is if you like how it plays and you could get maybe $100 for the head if you sold it.

That is not a vintage 80's Kramer.

Here is a link with more info about those models.

They were decent beginner guitars and he seems to have it priced about right. Question is would you want it? Did you play it?

Judging by your massive amount of Kramers and the credible source, I would say you probably nailed it.

I haven't played it, but I figured since he didn't know a whole lot about it himself I would look for some more information on it before making any decisions.

So it's not American? He told me that but at the price point I doubt it now. While it might be a nice little axe, I'm thinking I should instead just try to get straight cash so I can get closer to buying a PRS Custom 24.

No not an American,made in Korea by Samick if I remember right. Some were made in Indonesia. As for beginner guitars they were decent but if you are looking to upgrade to a PRS I would definitely pass. PRS is on a whole other level from these Epiphone/Gibson made Kramer guitars.

Fair enough. I'm gonna pass on this then.

I still play my single cut PRS even though I have replaced the pick ups now. The tuners still work perfectly, the paint still looks very nice (I only had a soft case for first 2 years), and the tone is fantastic. Never had a problem with it. It was my first electric guitar about 5 years ago, I loved it from day one, and it still impresses me. I have 2 more expensive guitars now, but I prefer the PRS all the way, but maybe I just got lucky and got a perfectly cut one or something, ya know?
