As most know, Michael Jackson owned Kramer Guitars. Will the models from the years he was in charge now increase in value?
#5
Don't think so. He wasn't recognized by his use of the guitar
#7
probably not then again people have chucked up a ****load of michael jackson memorabilia within the past few hours and asked for some rather ridiculous prices...

i think someone will make a tribute model. it's bound to happen.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I don't think so, he didn't have any signature models with Kramer or anything (i don't think). The guitars he owned will be worth money to MJ fans and collectors and stuff like that.
#11
i doubt it because its not like he played the guitar himself.

I hope it doesn't turn in to 30 models like dean did with dimebag.

I doubt just because he owned a controlling interest in a company that everything they made will suddenly go up in value. If he personally made the guitars or played them then you would have a shot.

i know the person who owns THE ACTUAL MASK he used in the thriller music video. that will be worth a fortune now.

What? Michael Jackson never had any stake in the original Kramer. The Jackson 5 used some aluminum Kramer guitars that's about it as far as I know and read.

probably not since he never played guitar, at least not in his videos
maybe theyd make an MJ tribute kramer but thatd be a tasteless way to profit from his way

Even if it does, if they make a model that magically makes you moonwalk with no effort, I'm buying it.

Dean Dimebag guitars, s'all I'm saying.

I doubt that they would make a tribute guitar for MJ at all.

Thats because he never owned Kramer where the hell are people getting this? Like I said the Jackson 5 used the early aluminum neck Kramer's but thats it.

ts might be referring to this bit

A company of Michael Jackson's in 1992 agreed to fund the reorganization of Kramer with Henry Vacarro Sr. In 1992, the Jackson company agreed to purchase the former Kramer Guitar Co. from HVV. The Jackson firm paid only $200,000 of the $1.5 million purchase price, according to Henry V. Vaccaro Sr., of HVV, which was formed to buy the Kramer assets. The company eventually defaulted on the contract when Michael Jackson was facing legal troubles in other areas of his personal life and career. HVV Corporation, the owner of what was left of Kramer by Vacarro, obtained a $1.8 million judgment against Jackson Communications, Inc. In 1996, U.S. marshals seized a grand piano Jackson used to compose the songs for his classic Thriller album, as well as two Rolls Royce automobiles. Jackson himself was not named in Vaccaro's lawsuit since he did not take any money out of the corporation.
