EVH never had a problem with no neck pickups! besides...think about the possibilites...get a red one...and cover it in black and white tape :twisted: ... and then you got a genuine icon of a guitar!
(P.S. im sure they are pretty decent axes, ive played a couple of these new 'kramers' one of the top line USA ones, (baretta pro i think) which was a very decent guitar, and the other was a cheaper V model (vangaurd) which wasnt exactly great, but for 170dollars... i couldnt think of anything that came close.)
Ever since gibson bought these companys up they havent been sticking their neck out enough to market them. Im sure these would sell in a better marketplace, but they arent being pushed. So unfortunatly, we probably wont get to play one for a LONG time
