First because there starter knock off of Fender guitars. You'd be better off getting a Fender... of if you really are short on cash a... Squire. But not a nockoff likethat.

Because the overall quality of the guitar is poor. It does what it should do, but it prolly won't sound nice, go out of tune fast and the neck might warp fast too.

I guess you could, I doubt though that it's worth it. If you'd want to do that why not use that money to buy a better guitar all in all? Just my two cents.

If your on a budget and looking for a cheap guitar with a floating trem, and an actual name brand then the Ibanex RG series are your best bet. THey are still pretty cheap...but better then that stuff...

But why do you want a floating trem? You do know what it means and how you have to block off a portion of your day to change their strings dont you?

"I just bought my son his first guitar from you. He is fifteen and wanted to learn how to play. We bought the VT-111S PlayerPack and I just wanted to tell you that I am very happy! It was delivered today and though he has never played before, two hours after he got it he was playing Smoke On The Water. THANK YOU FOR HIS OPPORTUNITY!.........A PROUD FATHER". Russell J.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the quote on one of the electric guitars...

It took my friend like 3 minutes to show me to play that the first time i've ever touched a guitar.
#26
chances are, you weren't playing it right....

chances also are, that kid didn't have someone to show him.

don't brag... or put down new players, it's annoying

don't listen to these jackasses. kramer is pretty alright guitar for beginner. there's really no point spenting a grand on a guitar if what you really want to do is explore. try it out, if you like it and think guitar is your route then do serious investment from then. my point is, try it out see if you like this type of guitar, you might end up thinking string thru is better or somethin.

sorry not really know what i'm saying, just smoked a tons of weed

Nobody is dissing Kramer. The guitar featured is not a real Kramer it is a copy made in china out of substandard materials and sold to dupe gullible idiots who beleive they gan get a genuine Kramer for $200.

Put down the weed and read the posts, because your the only one who made himself look like a jackass.

thats a decent first guitar alot better than a squier or Epi LP Special or something, that trem "looks" like a schaller/older Jackson unit but the metal could be subpar, but still for a first guitar its a good choice, have a store set it up and maybe let you watch the steps involved in string changing and tuning a floyd rose etup.

well my first guitar ever was a kramer vt. i think its like the best guitar for a beginner because it doesnt cost that much. but u get what you pay for. the quality is not real bad, but its not any good either.
#36
Just remember, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR- this is especially true for musical instruments. People spend 5000.00+ on guitars for a reason.

Hey, how are those Steinbergers?

^ Check to make sure a mosquito didnt fly into you're ear. Or that you don't have waterlog. Or its just that you're so used to the sound of a plywood guitar that it sounds fine to you.
