    I bought a Candy Apple Red Kramer Pacer, and the guitar was simply beautiful. It came set up with 10s, but I play 9s, so I did a new setup on the guitar. First, I put on the Cobalt 9's, then did the laborious task of adjusting the screws and re-tuning numerous times. There were times when I...

    Found an ad for this on CL, thought it was gonna be a faker or maybe something was gonna be weird. Turns out, everything is legit. 1983 Kramer Pacer Deluxe, upgraded pups, but the originals were included. Not a bad find!!

    Here's a great vintage axe. 1985 made in the USA Kramer Pacer Deluxe with the banana headstock and maple board. It has an Original Floyd Rose, Schaller tuners, Duncan JB in the bridge, Duncan APS-1's in the neck and middle. Very little fret wear and the body is in great condition considering...

    I've got a few guitars for trade. First is a 1989 Kramer Pacer. A bit of an oddball for 2 reasons. Pacers never came with reverse headstocks like this one and the multicolor firecrackle finish is very rare for Kramers of this era. Another oddity is a non-recessed Floyd Rose. All Pacers had...

    I bought a Kramer Pacer Deluxe off a forum bro from another forum. This plays really great! The neck is fast and the pickups sound great! It just needs a setup because its not staying in tune at the moment and isn't tuning up well (Then again I haven't changed the strings), but I suppose...

    I got my new American Deluxe QMT a week or so ago. I really dig it and the S1 system is pretty hip. I really like the ebony board. I dig the quilt and the wavy grain. Almost like having a flame and quilt in one guitar. The SCN pups are nice and lowered are very mellow which I dig. The DH-1 is...

    I really haven't found much backup on this, just here and there. Understanding this forum may be biased towards Ibanez, I would still like all opinions of superstrat type guitars and how they compare sonicaly and as far as quality (and visually if interested). Which guitars I have in my mind...

    I have 2 rg470s that have served me pretty well gigging. I use the whammy bar extensively and experience lack of trem tunining stability. So, I researched this forum (thank you to all) and other sources extensively; I considered 1570s, 2570s, and 8570s, and so far, I've bought on 570. I've...

    After seeing the Jackson/Jem hybrid I thought of my first guitar which is at least 16 years old now This is a Kramer XL2,I scratched off the XL2 because I thought it made it look nasty! :lol: You may notice I filed the bottom horn like the Green Meanie.I burnt the pink knobs like the PAW...

    I'm calling this project "PMC-inspired" since I know it won't be right, I just enjoy the look of those guitars and figure I might as well enjoy what I got... So here is my 91 Jem777SK "collection of parts". I got it in boxes and in a horribly-repainted state. Some people did not like the...

    Kramer Neck-Hard to find 'Hockeystick' headstock, excellent condition, frets have very little wear. I believe that they stopped making these in 1986. Schaller tuning keys. The only reall flaw is that there are very small holes below each tuner where there were different keys previously...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    I'm pretty damn sure that everybody here has had a guitar that they sold at one point or another and wished they could get back :( So I was thinking, what're the guitars that you let go in the past that you wish you could hunt down and retrieve? I had a gorgeous silver MIJ RG450DX and I sold...

    Sorry if this question has been asked already! Mine was a black Satellite Les Paul copy, bought in 1979 from a local tobacconists that also sold a range of cheap guitars. The body was a sort of plywood although you couldnt tell because of the thick black finish, the neck was a bolt on but...

    Hey guys, I have an 87 Kramer Pacer Hologrid I have had since 1990. I am the 2nd owner. I bought it off of my guitar teacher when I needed to upgrade to my second guitar. The guitar is in excellent condition. The hardware and paint is still glossy. There is only 1 small chip in the black on...

    Hey guys, I just wanted some thoughts on some guitars I'm thinking of getting. First would be something like a early 80's Kramer focus 3000/2000 or similar. The other i'm thinking would be older Charvel model 375 or something similar from them. Anybody have any experience or thoughts on...
