Those Music-Yo Kramers - hmmmmmmm.

After visiting the Music-Yo website. I'm considering one of those new Gibso-Kramers. *Have any of you seen these things? I mean come on! A neck-thru for under $400, Seymour Duncan PU's, Gotoh tuners. The Original "German made" Floyd Rose. Hell , there's $400 in hardware alone on this thing! Even the the non-neck thru models, *have a high quality Floyd unit on them. Go to the site and see for yourself. Just curious if any of you have played one of these things, if so, are they worth it or are they total junk? Anybody know?

I use to own one of the metallic blue h-s-h strikers, the neck was nice and comfy and the floyd was pretty good the only two things I did not like about the guitar were the reverse headstock and the rail pickups(they were a little too bright). I sold it because at the time I needed some effects pedals more than an extra guitar.

One thing that i hate about this kramers is quality electronics, they have weak switches dirty pots and the d-tuna on everyone of this models doesnt' work. I think they are a waste of money. The pickups are horrible to. You will be spending tons of money fixing these up.
This is a prime example of cheapy korean made guitars

I never had any problems with the electronics. I took the d-tuna off as soon as I got the guitar so I can't coment on that but the electronics were fine.

I took a gamble and purchased a Striker model for a modest $225.00 and to be honest, it didn't even feel like a $100.00 guitar. It just didn't get a nice/decent feel from it at all, the Floyd Rose was really stiff and the neck was of the worst quality wood I have ever played.

Not all Korean made guitars are crappy, but this one was.

I was able to flip it on EBAY and only took a $30 loss.

You get what you pay for. Live and learn.

I actually love the neck on my striker (it's a 7-string striker though), so I guess it's a matter of taste. *Perhaps I'm not very discriminating about guitars, after all, my main one's a Jackson and not an Ibanez

*prepares for the flaming*

No flames here....I could've just received a dud.

Jackson's are awesome guitars! Enjoy.
