Kramer Crusader vs Charvel So Cal

Hi all -

Looking at these guitars:

Seem very similar in specs but very different in price.

Any comments on them would be greatly appreciated....

thanks in advance,

Re: Kramer Crusader vs Charvel So Cal

I was looking into the Kramers recently, and those are nice deals. The biggest difference is that the Charvels are USA and the Kramers are Korean. For the money the Kramer is still a decent deal, but I had to swing towards USA made. So, I actually ended up getting a Charvel body in slime green that was loaded with the pups and Floyd off the bay, then I put on one of my old Japanese Charvel necks. I figure I can eventually get the "correct" neck off the bay at some point. (I actually had an old Jackson USA neck I wanted to use on it, but the neck pocket is 2 1/4" while the Jackson neck is 2 3/16", so that sucked...)

The other thing is that if you keep watching the bay, you can usually find those Charvels for $700 to $800 if you are patient.
