OVERVIEW

This model's specs are based on the famed 1983 USA Pacer.

Kramer guitars have a long history of performance-driven excellence. In the 80's, the company itself was considered one of the top guitar companies in the world.

The Kramer Pacer Classic's body, neck and electronics layout is faithful to the 1983 Kramer Pacer, which was famed for its versatility and playability. No wonder many name guitarists from that era were Kramer endorsees!

The Kramer Pacer guitar's beak headstock and classic 80s block logo top off this classic Kramer with a locking nut to keep you in tune. Vintage Kramer fans will notice Kramer moved the truss rod adjustment to the headstock, but that's the only difference in the Kramer Pacer Classic's neck from the original.

Classic dot inlays on a satin finished, thin-tapered maple neck with jumbo frets. No splice joint here, its all one piece topped with a maple board.

The mahogany body is loaded with classic alnico magnet pups, with a volume, tone control layout with a 3-way mini-toggle. Kramer has also added a what they call a "treble bleed" mod to the volume controls to keep that sparkle when you back down the decibels. This Kramer guitar is topped off with a Floyd Rose tremolo system for all the dive bombs you can handle while staying in tune.


Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

I'm blown away by this guitar. I grabbed it off the used section here on MF and I'm surprised anyone would return this beauty.

The fretwork is perfection. No buzz. Easy to set up. It came set up perfectly right out the box, with slightly high action on the treble side. In less than a minute I had it exactly where I wanted it.

Wow! I've owned Gibsons, Ibanez Prestige... This Kramer somehow plays better then all of them. When Kramer releases more finishes of this model I'm buying a second! (My first is pearl white.)

The electronics are tops, and I even liked the stock pickups. That being said, the stock pickups are the 490T/R set used in Epiphones. Since I already own a Gibson with 490's I decided to swap pickups.

I dropped in a set of Duncan Distortions and... Words don't describe the tones you can achieve. Dokken all day long! Pretty good cleans too, roll back the volume knob (gotta love the built in treble bleed!) and you got some nice funk/reggae tones. I know a lot of strat players aren't interested in dealing with Floyds, and I completely understand why, but Floyds CAN use used subtly. No one is forcing you to drive bomb all day. You can, though, and this guitar isn't going out of tune! The licensed Kramer trem beats the official import "Floyd Rose Special". My Ibanez Prestige doesn't hold tune as well as this baby, and it's sporting an original Edge Pro! (Not to discredit the prestige, I love it, but it doesn't astound me like the Kramer does. The price difference helps.)

I love the combination of the mahogany body with the maple fretboard. Lots of snap, but it's still warm. Perfect balance.

Once I threw on some strap locks and neon green dome knobs I was ready to whip out the spandex and rock! I can't say enough positive things about this axe.

This was my practice guitar for a long time. The pickups sound really good, the tremolo shocked me with how well it stayed in tune, and the red paint looks great. The build quality doesn't feel amazing and the neck is comfortable but not wonderful, however, I was able to put the action extremely low without buzz. The guitar is worth the money, but I still prefer the Striker when it comes to feel.

Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

KRAMER is back! I could not be happier with this guitar. So solid and well built it practically plays itself. Very easy to play and very responsive. Great warm tone. Very '80's Metal sounding. The Mahogany Body and Hard Maple Neck combine to create the most amazing tone and sustain. The neck has a smooth satin finish and is very easy to play and would make it a lot easier for a beginner to learn. Very well built. High quality. I have no idea how they can offer a guitar of this quality for such a low price. The Candy Apple Red finish is absolutely beautiful. I am proud of this guitar and have a blast playing it. It feels like and sounds like a guitar that costs three times more! If you are thinking of buying this, dont hesitate any further.

Kramer pacer classic - great value for money

By James Oliver

from California

Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

Lets put it this way, if i wanted to buy another guitar it would be very hard to justify not buying another Pacer Classic (except this time in Red, as mine has an awesome white finish). Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great playing versatile rock guitar. Be prepared to learn about Floyd Roses to get the most out of this guitar, but that also applies to any Floyd equipped guitar. Buy it.
The guitar has several great features that I like, solid mahogany body, maple neck with maple fret board, a well made licensed floyd rose, two humbuckers each with a volume control and a master tone control. The volume controls feature a treble bleed mod. It stops the sound getting muffled when you roll down the volume. I really like this feature as i use my volume knob a lot to control the amount of overdrive in my sound, and the treble bleed mod keeps the tone crisp at lower volume settings.
When the guitar arrived i needed to put on new strings, completely set up the floyd rose so it was level with the body and had to set the action . This may put off some people but once i set it up it is one of the best playing guitars that i've played. The neck is amazing, flat radius for easy bends and fast lead work but with some depth, it is not a super skinny neck and is very easy to play. Fast legato runs, tapping and chord work are all easy, and the guitar is very hard to put down. The licensed floyd is actually very good, a surprise at this price point, and keeps the guitar in perfect tune after divebombs and pull ups. The stock pickups are also pretty good, especially for high gain stuff, they have good articulation and top end sizzle, great for 80s rock. Have upgraded to Seymour Duncan JB and 59 and the guitar has an amazing sound now, great for rock, metal and even blues.
This is one of the best value guitars available today. The stock components work great and if you ever need to upgrade an original Floyd Rose drops right in and some Seymour Duncans or Dimarzios would be an easy upgrade. The body and neck are well made and the frets well dressed. A really great playing guitar.

    Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

    This is a sweet guitar. So smooth, effortless to play. My strat is now a lawn ornament.

    Previously I owned a similar style of blue or red guitar from a similar price range. It was a piece of junk, the worst guitar I've ever owned of prolly four dozen. Impossible to get in tune. I never once got the thing in tune and finally gave it away for next to nothing. I should have just junked it to save anyone else the trouble.

    Ok, this guitar, the Kramer Pacer Classic I got used. This is a dream. A thin, yet fat neck. Just right so that your hand doesn't close all the way and get cramped up. You don't have to apply much pressure to play a note, so moving from one to the next is effortless. I can play licks on this that would be impossible or, at least, very tedious, on my strat.

    The body is a very nice shape visually, and is large enough that it is very comfortable to play while sitting.

    Ok, to the pickups. They are not super hot by any means. But, they aren't garbage. They are adequate and I won't be replacing them. They are what I would call average.

    Tuning stability is very good. I might remove the locking nut once a week or so to tune, then use the fine tuners for a week.

    Ok, get this axe, it's probably the best guitar you'll find in its price range. In reality, it's likely the best guitar you'll find even in a slightly higher price range.

      Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

      Ok, overall not a bad guitar at all. Sound is pretty good and I personally like the feel of it. I am not too picky when it comes to how the neck feels and plays, as long as it ins't uncomfortable. The only problem I had was that no matter what the action was horrible. If i set it so that the action didn't buzz on the lower end of the neck the action was too high at the higher end, and if it was nice at the higher end it buzzed at the lower end. I had to actually carve a bit of the neck off where it bolts into the body so that it was even throughout the frets. GO OVER THIS GUITAR WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB!!! Make sure everything is in order before you decide to keep it. In the long run its worth the money but only if they send you one that is of the quality and worth the Kramer name.

      NOT a Floyd Rose

      By webwarmiller

      from DFW

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

      Kramer (owned by Gibson) is misleading people into thinking these new Kramers have Orginal Floyd Rose Tremolos. They atually have Kramer branded licensed Floyds which are NOT made anywhere close to the same quality as a true Floyd Rose. No where on the Kramer website will you see them mention the word "licensed" nor will you ever see an up close picture of the trem. I find this ironic as Gibson is the most aggressive brand out there when it comes to protecting their intellectual property, yet they have no issue with stepping on the Floyd Rose name...

          Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

          I've owned only 2 (electric) guitars in my 4 years of playing guitar, and this definitely beats my old one. It has a smooth neck feel, a comfortable body shape/feel and is surprisingly light. I honestly think that this won't be my first and last Kramer i will own.

          In my opinion, it is the perfect guitar for me. The pickups are the only downfall, yet they are great pickups in my opinion. The only con i could mention at the moment would be that it is made in Indonesia. What i mean by that is that it could only be better if it was made in America. But it doesn't bother me, i don't see how it could be much better, i would only be paying for what i probably wouldn't even notice

          The neck has a glossy look, yet a very smooth feel. A thin neck, perfect for speed and comfort. The knobs are not stiff and are super easy to move, although i'm not sure if the stiffness in the knobs are the same on all the guitars of this model. It stays in tune no matter how much i bend the whammy bar.

          Overall, it is perfect. Perfect for tapping, too. Not much more to say. I don't see how you can possibly go wrong with this guitar...honestly!!!

          One last thing, in terms of staying in tune, i am tuning this guitar more than i expected. I tune it about 3-5 times every practice session (a few hours of practice). Yes, i use the locking nut. I am guessing it has to do with my own style of playing. Or maybe because i play my strings to the point where they break, instead of replacing them regularly.

          Great Guitar, but could be modified

          Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

          Overall, with a better pick up, It would be even more fantastic.
          This is my first review of any guitars. This guitar is a great looking guitar and it plays nice, the neck is a pleasure to play. Surely, for the price range, you can't do better, I don't think.
          While, the Pick ups has more pros than cons, but the upgrade would make this guitar and absolute great guitar.

          I am running it through Laney amp and RP 155 Digitech.

          Clean channel sounds very nice.

          The sound is clear and even with distortion and overdrive every note can be heard without getting lost in the translation or hide behind the distortion. Very good articulation. Very bright sounding and not muddy or too bassy. However, for my taste is sound a bit too dry and It would have been nicer it it has more warmth. However, it lacks chunks and too dry sounding when playing chords, riffs, etc with overdrive and distotion. Not good at all. The pick ups are weak, I am replacing the pick ups with SD Hot Rod.
          With all the complaints, It is great guitar for the price range.

              from Fort Smith, AR

              Comments about Kramer Pacer Classic Electric Guitar:

              This is proof that you can get a guitar at a good price that doesn't have to look cheap or play cheap. I have yet to find a flaw in the finish or the "out of the box" setup. I have a real 80's American Pacer and this feels and plays better than it. I have had several American Gibson and Fender guitars and I would put this guitar up against any of them. I currently have a Strat Deluxe that doesn't play as smooth or quick as this guitar. Buy it, you won't regret it.

              When i tried this guitar in the store I bought it just 'couse I fell in love with the neck. Low action, no fret buzz and good unplugged sound, but PU's are bad and so is licenced Floyd. That can be solved! Comparing to my 57 RI strat or EBMM EVH, this cheap axe is a good value for the money, just needs a little modification.

              I bought one of the Pearl White Pacer Classics and love it! The neck is great and the finish is slick and flawless. I was surprised on the tone as original Pacers came with a different body wood, but the Mahogany body paired with the Maple neck on this is a great match. I can't see anyone finding a better guitar in this price range.

                  I am overseas and was looking for a good shred guitar that I was not going to be worried about due to cost in case of damage. This, after changing the strings to a nice lite set and breaking in the neck a little plays as good as a guitar worth much more $$. I would say the closest I can compare it to is my 1987 RG-550. I like that neck a little more, but this is close...for under 400 I am really, really happy! You wont regret buying one!!

                    I absolutely love this guitar, I mainly use and prefer Les Paul style guitars and ibanez guitars never appeased my taste...however the neck on this guitar is awesome, I can not stop playing this guitar!! I did replace the stock pickups with some Seymour Duncan's other than that I did a quick set up on the bridge and I got it just perfect for my hands.

                        So, I bought this guitar because I had a Kramer when I was a kid. My old one was awesome, rock solid. Gibson bought Kramer and let it go to garbage. This guitar has sharp fret ends, terrible setup (not a huge deal) and the Floyd is not recessed like 80's Kramers. To boot, the licensed Floyd doesn't hold tune at all. I had this set up, changed the strings, and adjusted the tension on the Floyd, and it still sucks. For the price, buy a Jackson if you're looking for a good dual humbucker/Floyd guitar. I've been playing for 25 years, and have played everything from classical and percussive acoustic finger style, to blues and rock to death metal. This guitar is not worth it's price, do yourself a favor and get a dinky.

                          I loved the sound & feel of this guitar. I didn't have any problems keeping this guitar in tune. The neck feels great & I could get the action low with no buxz. The finish was perfect (white) and all the electronics functioned smoothly. The one thing that I couldn't deal with was that the high E string sat so close to the edge of the neck that it kept slipping off. After a week I decided to return the guitar. Maybe this was just a fluke but it doesn't happen at all on my 2015 Pacer ltd. edition. If it wasn't for the problem with the high E string, I would defuhave kept this guitar!!
