2) Kramer Pacer FT211S
3) LTD Viper 10

Tone is more from the amp. You should think about upgrading your amp to get a more desired tone. But out of those guitars I'd choose the Kramer without a second thought.

Agreed your amp is going to define your tone more than any other single piece of equipement. From the choices above I'd pick the Kramer hands down I have a 1987 Kramer F1000 and it is top notch when it comes to fit/finish and build quality.

Of course when buying used it is always best if you can get your hands on it first you can't tell how a guitar plays from a picture.

^ is it an older kramer, though? IIRC there was a pacer during the musicyo era which was very low end (plywood body IIRC), and i wonder if that's one of them. EDIT: maybe it was a focus, i can't remember

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Thanks for advices. Another option is Yamaha RGX620Z (made in Taiwan), what do you think about it?

i haven't tried it but i think i would likely take it over the other three.

do you have a link to it, just in case i'm confusing it with another model?

Second-hand, I'm guessing?

I haven't tried that exact model but based on the Yamahas I have tried I would take that over the other ones you listed- assuming it's in decent condition etc..

Just (as with any second-hand guitar) check it over as thoroughly as you can, do research online to be sure you know exactly how it should look etc. etc. etc. (in case the owner has swapped parts etc. )
