Kramer Pacer Vintage Electric Guitar

Based on one of Kramer's most popular and historic guitars the Kramer Pacer Vintage is a tribute to the era when shred was king. Its Maple body and 25.5 inch, 22 fret Maple neck and board sear through its USA Seymour Duncan JB (bridge) and JN (neck) pickups. The Kramer Pacer Vintage electric guitar iscontrolled by 2 push/pull, series parallel coil tap volume controls with volume bleed mods, 1 tone control and a 3-way mini toggle switch for endless tonal varieties. Kramer has added the truss rod adjustment to the headstock, so no more taking those necks off for adjustment (like some of those other guys). Built for ultimate playability, the Pacer sports the same neck profile as the famed 83 Pacer but added the 12 inch radius fingerboard for classic comfort and bends that never plink out.

4 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Hair Metal Tone Machine"
Overall: I always wanted one of these purely for the looks, but I must say I was very surprised on the playability and craftsmanship once I got it. I have few super strats: 2 Charvel Pro Mods (1 Japan, 1 USA) and 2 Jackson Adrian Smiths (1 USA, 1 SDX Import) and I find myself playing this one the most. I'm really a fan of the Kramer body shape in comparison to the others..I feel the higher frets are easier to reach on it and really like the feel of the neck. I was shocked on how well the action was setup and straight/flat the neck was for a foreign guitar...they did a great job. The Seymour Duncans are smoking and deliver amazing tones, from thumping lows to shimmering highs. I bought the blemished model option and still can't figure out why it was blemished. I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat...I wish they had more colors/options available, but I guess it appeals to a niche audience. My only complaint is that the guitar is a little on the heavy side due to the all maple construction....but all maple delivers some pretty amazing tone so its a good sacrifice. Highly recommend it!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pacer returned - Disappointed with product"
Sound: As with any sound this is subject to personal opinion. In my opinion the series / parallel tap was unusable. Just sounded like a muddy low output humbucker in every configuration. Don't expect a classic sound from this guitar. No points on versatility. I typically love JB's but this bridge pickup in combination with all the maple didn't sound good at all. Using a Kemper amplifier and several dozen of my favorite profiles didn't help. - Some profiles fit well with certain guitars but I went through dozens and wasn't able to find a good combination. I can't say what might make it sound better - maybe a brass trem block would help the average sustain and some different pickups but I wasn't about to experiment with what was presented as the higher end Kramer option. Feature: Has all the right features and name brands... just put together poorly with little attention to quality or if this was the right match of pieces / parts. Ease of Use: I wanted to love it! Never managed a great sound from it... maybe you can. I've never sold a guitar going back to the early 80's and I've bought some garbage and classics. Manage to find something I love about each one of those guitars. This one went back in a week.... Standard setup - no surprises here. Any FR trem will require a bit extra attention to setup properly. It was rather comfortable playing without amplification. All that maple.... it almost had an acoustic sound to it. Just don't plug it in. ; / Quality: The vintage finish was nice. That's the only nice thing I can think of. The frets are sharp, the FR had a small bit of chrome missing, the pickups wouldn't sit even (leaned forward unless you propped them back), the allen holders were cheap set screw locks, the bolt on neck was loose even though it couldn't be tightened anymore. To be honest I'm bummed Gibson bought Kramer and gave it such a half hearted effort. This is 250-350 worth of guitar with a 400 premium. Value: NO - take it from someone with 20/20 hindsight - there are better options for the price. The recent price drop is a step in the right direction but it's not enough. Manufacturer Support: Only dealt with Zzounds staff who as usual, were very helpful and responsive. The Wow Factor: Yea wow factor - Guess I was lured by the fancy finish. All that 80's lingo in the advertising - they were not making those sounds with this guitar. Gibson / Kramer is being rather loose with their interpretation of "re-issue" here. Overall: I had this guitar for over a week and returned it. Summary is that it felt like a cheap guitar with some higher end (mismatched) components added as an afterthought and a neat finish. I was going to chalk it up as a learning experience and move one but my Zzounds contact asked me to write an honest review so here it goes.
