Kramer 420?

Anyone ever played one of these? They have a pickup combo like a Nightswan, they look pretty cool. Some guy on my local Cr*****st is selling one for $300, what do y'all think? I've never seen one before, maybe its kinda rare?

If memory serves those are MIK guitars and are likely to be plywood bodies. The necks are decent, for that kind of money I would buy a Focus series Kramer, those are the MIJ models with necks made by ESP and bodies by Sports or ESP, very well made guitars for the money. I have played quite a few Kramers, jonesing for a new one myself. Check out Vintage Kramer.com to learn about Kramers, awesome resource on these fun guitars.

Re: Kramer 420?

100 series Kramers were low level imports with Duncan Designed craptastic pickups. I had a 210 (2 humbuckers in standard position). They came with a Floyd Rose II IIRC. I loved the body and neck, and changed the pickup to a JB and it was a great guitar.

$300 is a little high for the initial quality, if you can score for $200 I'd jump on it.
