Kramer Pacer Classic - thoughts?

I was looking at the Kramer Pacer Classic.

It is a recessed tremolo? Also, what are the pups? For under $400, I've heard its a nice machine.

thanks in advance!

Not a recessed trem. It's an incredible machine. I now have 2. One with stock pups and the other with a Tone Zone in the bridge. I honestly can't decide which I like better. That says a lot about the stock pups.

Here's my review of the guitar: http://www.jemsite.com/compare-elect...assic/reviews/

I think it's probably decent for the price if you like them. I always thought the body shape on them was just a tad little bit "off" but that's personal taste anyway

I dont own one, but thanks to lespauld's review, I went and tried one out. For the price, you wont get a better axe, ever. I had a GRX40 Gio Ibanez before and the Kramer blew it out of the water. The stock pups are amazing, the bridge feels nice, it's overall an amazing axe. I wish I could get my hands on one, but I may have found an old RFR RG550 so I'm eying that right now

Check out http://www.vintagekramer.com for a rundown of all the classic Kramer guitars from the '70's and '80's before they went bust and Gibson resurrected them.

Owning a Kramer makes you 2.5x more likely to date a supermodel
