Can't beat a decent strat. There's a reason why it's the most imitated guitar ever.

Re: Strat or kramer?

I guess it would depend on what you plan to use it for. If you're looking for a combination of flash and shred machine, stick with the JS reissue of the RS Kramer. But if you're looking for some real tonal versatility I'd get an EJ signature Strat. You're talking about two different types and scale lengths of necks too, so take that into consideration also.

I know that each of them is for diferent playing type, i want a guitar not up to 900E (Its like 1000 dollars) with good tone and fast fretboard, i want her for everyday practice and some small gigs... something like a best friend... I like the EJ very much but here in Greece the price is about 2800-3000 $....

Personally I'd stick with the Strat. I hate the llok of those Jersey Stars. Tacky, if you ask me.

Jersey Star if you like stars and flashy stuff on your guitar... Fat Strat w/ the Floyd If you don't.

Re: Strat or kramer?

I'd go for the Fender, there's very little you can't do with a Strat, especially if you put a splittable humbucker in bridge position.
