judging by mine (striker) that I got a few years ago, they're better quality than the price would suggest, but don't expect miracles.

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.

I'm drooling over the Striker. I'm definitely getting one as soon as I have the money. After that it'll be time for an OFR and all new pups.

I CAN'T WAIT!!!
We're only strays.

^ assuming they have the same studs as mine, the studs are too small for an OFR, you'd have to drill. And there's a little plasticky thing you'd have to dig out too, under the trem, for some reason.

No way, that friggin sucks dude. Is the trem atleast useable??? And what about a different kind of high quality FR that would fit??

BTW How are the pickups??

^ the FR, to me, seems to be one of the higher quality cheapo licensed ones, but it's still no match for OFR/Schaller/Gotoh/Ibanez Edge and equivalents. I'm not aware of any good quality which'll fit without drilling the studs.

Pickups are very, very hot (the quad rail). Not great, ok for a metal crunch type tone, not great for leads.

EDIT: my feeling is if you're willing to switch pickups and trem you could probably just buy a guitar with a good trem from the get go...

Well the Striker has all the features I want in a guitar. Unfortunately though there's only that cheap version.

So basicly the pickups are muddy?

#9
^ yeah, not great. you'd want to switch them sooner or later, more likely sooner.

Theyre great! I love mine- I have a Vanguard too, just like the one youre talking about. I dont really liek the quadrails so im swaping them out for some other pickups. Great Axes too

here are my Kramers (3 of them are Yo's, the black one is from 1989)

Maniaxe, what is the overall quality like? And how well go the FRs stay in tune??

Edit: Nm, you have the higher end US models.

ive played the cheaper ones, im thinking of buying one as a backup, they feel pretty solid, not as solid as say a Gibson but more solid than any ibanez ive ever played. Cant comment of the trem though bcause ive only ever played the ones with stopbar style bridges, and thats all ive ever ben interested in because im not a fan of trems.
