A Little Modern History

The Pacer's beak headstock and classic '80s block logo top off this classic Kramer with a locking nut to keep you in tune. Vintage Kramer nuts will notice that Kramer moved the truss rod adjustment to the headstock, but that's the only difference in the Classic's neck from the original. Just so you know, Kramer was the #1 selling guitar brand in the world in the mid-1980s.

The Playground

Classic dot inlays on a satin finished, thin tapered Maple neck with jumbo frets. No splice joint here folks -- it's all one piece topped with a Maple board.

The Guts

A Mahogany body loaded with classic Alnico magnet pups, with a volume, volume, tone control layout with a 3-way mini-toggle. The variety of tones are many! Kramer also added a treble bleed mod to the read more volume controls to keep that sparkle when you back down the decibels. It's topped off with a Floyd Rose(tm) tremolo system for all the dive bombs you can handle while staying in tune. read less

"Amazing value!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Simply put, this is probably THE best guitar out there for this price.
Sound
Sound is eighties all the way. The pickups get the job done but depending on your particular style may or may not need to be replaced. I think they could be a tad more articulate but they are still rockalicious.
Features
It has a treble bleed circuit but I don't need it because I keep my volume and tone controls dined all the time. The neck is fantastically comfortable.
Quality
High quality workmanship and a beefy weight. Very solid guitar. Feels more expensive. It doesn't feel cheap.
Value
Excellent value. Well worth the money. The Floyd Rose will need adjustment and the frets were a bit sharp but 5 minutes with a file fixed that.
