Thumbs up kramer striker

so, recently i have been looking online and i went to and noticed they are selling kramer strikers fr-424cm on their site, I also noticed they are 350.00 usd. so i thought what the heck i would pick one up. It came in and let me say this thing is beast. it keeps up with any other higher end guitars I have. the stock pick ups were a little muddy and i have replaced them with emg 81 and 85s with a emg s single coil in the middle. it was 300 dollar pickups on a 350 dollar guitar, however now this thing is my axe of choice it keeps up quite well i got it originally to just check it out and learn my guitar tech skill on while installing pick ups and what not. ive recently thought about adding a floyd rose pro to it just to mess around and have a project. but the licensed floyd on it keeps it in tune great and sounds amazing. so long story short, yes i know they are made in Indonesia, yes i know it was a 350 dollar guitar, no i did not expect to become a kramer fanatic at all. But this has changed me! if you get the chance jam one or if you got the cash order one, you will enjoy it.

Re: kramer striker

Glad to hear someone's happy with the new era Kramers. A Kramer Focus 1000 was my second guitar back in 1985, then a Pacer Deluxe in 87--back when Kramer was it's own company but using ESP parts. Once they went under in the early 90s, they were never the same. Last I heard, they were owned by Gibson--not sure if they still do or not.
