my friend's brother is getting a jackson soon. and i'm going to buy his kramer. but should i put the kramer pickups into my squier? pretty much will the pickups on the kramer (which has a floyd) line up with the squier's strings?

Depending on the Kramer you could be getting a guitar 100 times better than the Squire. Why part out the Kramer to put it's parts on a cheapo guitar?

Depends on the Kramer. If its an 80's Kramer, it might have come with Schaller pickups, which are suprisingly good.

About Kramer:
I've noticed it's hit or miss, unless you know the model for sure, you might be getting garbage.
I had a decent one, but made of plywood, and apparently there was no other model like it with limited info.
Then, I got another one, thinking it was a Baretta.
Turns out it was a VERY low end one made of plywood, ironically it was made in Korea but had the same junk quality as Chinese made guitars today.
Cusp of Magic

I think the Strikers were the ones with plywood bodies.

Yah plywood guitar and cheap electronics. Necks were surprisingly nice to play though.


"Pretty much all Kramers except the 90's era guitars are great."

Pretty much a broad false statement.

A lot of junk was made in the 80's and there were some VERY nice MIA Kramer's that came out of the Gibson factory during the 90's.

You just got to know the models and be able to identify them.

Personally I would keep the stock pups on the squire over the old Korean stuff from Kramer. Then I would upgrade the Kramer electronics with some decent humbuckers. Then you would have 2 guitars that could get a variety of different sounds.

Just MHO

Good luck with your decision.

well dude if you are doing the work yourself like I do then you have the joy of mixing and experimenting.

Have fun with your project and mix and match to see what you like.

Got low- end Kramer (imperial) myself.
Made in korea, great neck, decent woods, ok electronics.

Mine has 2 quad-rail pups, nothing to write home about but not terrible either. Gets the job done. Maybe that future kramer of yours has coil-split function aswell, nice feature indeed.

There's nothing wrong with strikers. People talk bad about them because they were the lower end Kramers but they are still a very good guitar for what They are. They are alot better then any kramer that has been made since the cumpony was sold. I would chose a striker over a squire anyday, actully I do everyday because I own both. If you are changing the pickups yourself I would say change them around and see what you like and try diffrent pickups in diffrent guitars.
