I got mine a couple of weeks ago and had to do some work in order for it to be playable. I don't know if I got a dud but,it lookeed like mine was just assembled very quickly and just shoved into the box so it could be shipped out. It was not setup at all and when I plugged it in,the pickups would hum constantly due to a bad wiring job and lack of shielding. I ended up doing a full setup and truss rod adjustment and intonation check, during which I setup the guitar for use with 10's. Next I took out the pups and installed some Aluminum tape in the pup compartments which helped lower the hum, after which I put the pups back in. The final thing I did was to take a look at the wiring compartment in the back and to no surprise, my suspicions were correct. It was a botched wiring job. So I shielded the wiring compartment with Aluminum tape as well and then rewired the pickups and installed a Sprague Orange cap on the Tone Pot, after which, the hum was completely gone and the guitar was now playable! After adjusting the pickup height, this isn't a bad guitar for the buck. You just have to know how to do a good setup on it. I have mine set up as a hardtail, so it stays in perfect tune which I like and the neck is built for speed, which is a extra bonus. IMO, these guitars are either hit or miss, you get a winner or a dud.

I bought this kramer in jan. of 09. First of all i am a big kramer fan. This guitar is the greatest beginner guitar you can buy. But if you want a real guitar your gonna have to do a few changes. The pickups on this guitar are epiphone really. The sustain and tone of the body is alright actually. the picture is not the true red that the axe is. it is dark metallic red, by the way way to thick. Bridge is alright i like to pull out on the whammy. So if u want a great guitar buy a higher level epiphone, buy a gibson, buy a real fender, kramer, or high level jackson or charvel You can also give this guitar a makeover for $300 bucks buy a seymour duncan jb some fender noisless pickups for the single coils. the stock coils sound alrite but way to noisy sand off all the finish on the body and apply a very thin finish then maybe put on a floyd rose and some grover tuners put on some new pots too then you got a good guitar it has potential do it .. it has an alrite neck

Ok when the kramer came i ripped it from the box and pluged it into a Marshall half stack it blew my mind, the guitar was amazing. The crunch is perfect and the clean tone is the best i have ever heard. Now i have played ESP, Dean, Gibson, Fende, B.C. Rich, Ect., but this guitar one of the best and for the price why not buy it I LOVE THIS GUITAR!!!...The only thing i didnt enjoy is the high e on the first fret will not play but i dont even use the first fret so it dosent bother me that much. And that i wish i had a Floyd Rose
I have been a long time fan of Kramer Guitars and wanted one for my own. I was very pleased with this one. It is great right out of the box, but if you want to make a few mods on it it will stand up to the big boys. Either way it's all good with this one. I would reccomend it to any player at any level. The metallic red is a beautiful finish as well. 4 1/2 STARS!!!!
this guitar is awsome if has great pickup and the humbucker and single coils sound awsome. i play mine through a 130watt peavey and it blows me away i would recamend this guitar for a beginer or a 10year guitarist. i'm played guitar for almost 6 years now and bought my kramer pacer about a year ago
I have recieved this guitar during the Christmas of 07' and have been playing it ever since. I love how th neck of the guitar feels. I play this guitar through a Crate GTD 15 Watt Amplifer with a BOSS DS-1. I highly recomend this guitar for beginners and professionals.
This guitar rocks.I play this baby through a crate 15watt practice amp. This is a great beginning guitar and has great tone. I just needed to change the bridge pickup to a Seymour Duncan Disortion(Which rocks!!!!). Overall the guitar is great and the quality is great. The only downer is that it doesnt have a pickguard.It sounds great through a Digitech Gurnge Pedal.
Ran across this guitar while looking for a good stage back-up that has a bit of 1980's throwback flair. This guitar hasn't dissapointed! The good: Stock pick-ups don't squeal (sound great!), excellent action. Beautiful finish for the $. The bad: Tuning machines feel weak, and the nut is improperly cut. Some finishing flaws around the neck joint. Headstock/bridge/weak machines combo creates some tuning issues.Verdict: If your not afraid of a little work or a few parts swap outs, this is probably one of the best guitars on the market for the price.
Had this guitar about 6 months now. Once I finally got it set up right it sounds and plays great. For the money, this is a good guitar. But it does take some work to get it set up right. Might want to consider taking it to a pro.
I ordered the Kramer Pacer FT-211 a few weeks back and was initially suprised buy the look at feel of the guitar out of the box. Altho there was a minor dimple in the black finish, it still looked sleek and mean. Once I plugged it in(Randall RG100 Half Stack with a Boss Multi Effects), I wasn't as suprised from the sound it produced. Altho the bridge humbucker did create a nice aggresive crunch, the single coils did leave something to be desired. I haven't tried the trem at all. After a week of playing it(and I am not rough on my gear)the nut broke at the low E string. I was obviously disappointed. But I must say, MusiciansFriend took care of it quickly, and sent me a replacement nut. It only cost me about 5 bucks to get it replaced, so I paid it out of pocket, but MF was willing to reimburse me.The humbucker actually works good for leads, so I rarely use the single coils now. I'm still fairly happy with this purchase dispite the issues.
I baught my Kramer pacer early this summer, and I must say...I will never go to another guitar in my life..I love this thing. The Neck is thin, EASY to play leads high on the neck, incredibly low action for scaling and moving and pretty decent pickups. Now the only problem I had when I got mine were a few dead frets here and there, but a few adjustments and it was golden. So I say this guitar is almost a steel....it sounds great for the price. This guitar is also very versitle. I've played, metal, rock, blues, punk pretty much anything.
I've had this guitar for a while and i got it setup to where the tremolo is against the body. I only have to tune it 1ce every other week. Stock humbucker isnt bad, but my NEW EMG SA/SA/89 set sounds AMAZING in it! WARNING!!! if you buy EMG's, buy solder, a soldering gun, and abt 18-22 gauge wire. oh, and something to widen the hole from the main compartment to the humbucker slot.
