Hi guys...

I'd like to know, what do you think about the guitar...

The $$$ is not bad... I think is cheaper than an Ibanez.

Or do you recomend something else...???

thanks

Angelo

Here's the specs if people are too lazy to search for it.

To tell you the truth, it's a ridiculously low price for a guitar like this. It may be Korean made, but I think that's just so much hype. Sure, it isn't a 7620, but for that price, I'm shocked to see what it does have. It looks great, and the specs aren't too shabby. If you want, you can always change the pups later... :biggrin:

What's your main concern? quality? or price? If the former, then go for an Ibanez. If the latter, then go for the Kramer. I don't think it can be all that bad considering what you're paying for...

Maybe as a starter guitar but I just have a hard time believing that anything that cheap is really of any quality.

I know that's a horrible stereotype but it's burned into my brain! I can't help it! :loco:

Consider that a Floyd Rose 7 will cost you about $150, and that leaves about $79 for everything else! What a deal!

The guitar actually looks pretty good. I had some Kramers in the 80s that were nice, but I haven't played a new one in years.

Hi guys...
I just think that, if in the end you don't like how the guitar sounds, you can always put other PU'S (Ibanez) and still see...
You can also buy a new Body from Warmud or so and see...
The Price makes me crazy....
I'll try it and tell you later...

the only problem is, that I'm in Germany, and Musicyo Europe doesn't have the Guitar at the Moment...

But I'll go for it!!!

I've got one, it was my 7-String learner. *I'm now getting a secondhand UV777BK though. *It's not bad, and it fact 100% excellent for the price, but the pick-ups are a bit weak. *The neck shape is very comfortable, but unfortunately mine is pretty uneven, leaving me with very bad action for my low strings. *In theory, the neck shape would be excellent for ultra-low action, but they'd have to do a better job of fretting the guitar (which they can't at that ridiculously low price). *I'd say, if you want to know what a 7-stringer plays like, but don't want to shell out a lot of money, this is a pretty good bet.

Huh, I bought a Kramer from that site.. a 6 string V shape one. Cos I wanted a V and if I don't like it my friend will be happy to take it. I played it for 10 minutes and gave it to my friend with no regret.
It has to be one of the worst build guitar I played for ages. That's the price you pay and that's the quality you get. If you have an Ibanez, don't buy it cos you gonna hate it.
It's really a beginner guitar, the construction are worst than anything, electronics everything...

I won't expect much from any of those Kramers...
