i've been looking at the this kramer:

anyone have any experience with it?
i was wondering if the pickups were any good, and if the floyd was decent

other suggestions are welcome, as long as the price is similar

thanks

Kramer's lower-end guitars are the ****s. the pickups are ****, the neck doesnt fit into the base of the guitar well and it is always out of tune. If you are looking for quality at that price, look at dean's lower-end stuff. Like the caddy or the dime-o-flage

thats a low end kramer?

its solid alder, and im planning on replacing the bridge and pickups,


the vendetta looks nice, but i want something with a floyd

Um, I don't know anything about the Kramer, however, i've been hearing nothing but praise for the Agile guitars, the AL2000s are in that price range, go check out the reveiws of thier guitars in the Reveiw section. I

i've looked at agiles, but the duty and shipping would be an extra $150 or so

Kramer isnt really the best choice to look into, I would tell ya. They have some pretty bad low end guitars. I would look into some low end Jacksons, since I heard that they arent that bad (though I havent really any expirence with Jacksons, so try to get a solid answer that their pretty good).


Good Luck!

I wouldn't recommend getting anything with a floyd rose in your price range, stick to fixed bridges.
