I do not like this guitar at all. All the knobs are loose and rattle around, the floyd rose bar doesn't tighten, it just hangs there. The locking nut does not work on the one I have and the pickups do not give very good tone. Compared to my jackson dinky dxmg, this thing is horrible. The dinky is only a little more and a lot better. This guitar is good for people who don't care about sound quality and don't mind tuning their guitar every 10 minutes. Don't buy.

Great Guitar for the price and more!!!!

By Ali Kushanfar

from San Francisco,

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

This guitar sounds even greater than its price range, nothing wrong with it. I am doing the modification because of my taste, not the weeakness of the guitar or pick ups.
Al the features are great and in place with good quality.
As I said everything is great and the guitar is very versatile.

The Neck Pick ups soundsexcellent and it is warmth with good articulations. I don't see a need to change that.

However, The single coin and Bridge Pick ups while are still good, but not as good as neck pick up for my taste, I find them a bit too distorted and the articulation is not as good as neck for my taste, but they still sound nice.

I am going to change the single coin with a Saymour Duncan single coin and the bridge with EMG HZ.
Can never beat kramer at its price range!!!!!!!

Ask me a question

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

I have owned this guitar and have played it an hour a day for three months. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this product; It has given me a credible sound on a poor man's budget. I will someday have a charvel so cal hss but until then I will rock out with this and love it! And you never really have to worry about the finish cause who cares?
I rated this a nine based on my overall satisfaction of this guitar. I am not trying to say it is equal in quality to higher end axes. But if you can push over 300 bucks, this guitar will be everything you need until you can afford another.
I gave quality a nine on this guitar because some of the work is sloppy but it is cosmetic. The middle pickup hole looks like it was cut out by middle school shop class and theres's burn marks on the maple. I think it's hilarious though and doesn't effect any part of playability or sound. Frets were perfect. Pickup install perfect. Hardware works perfect. Set up was terrible but I can give you some tips. Change the strings immediately or youll have terrible fret buzz. I just pushed the spring claw screws up against the wood and set string height at 1/16 in above the fret metal at the 12th fret. they include the metric wrench you need 3mm. I used 10-46 dean Markely Blue Steel and they sound great.
I can play all day on this. The neck is fantastic; smaller at the top for easy chording and it widens at the bottom for better bending. The thing never goes out of tune without extreme divebombing. The stock pickups are awesome if you love 80s metal for me like Iron Maiden or Ratt etc. I have been able to get many tones out of this and I have never had to adjust the pickups. Intonation has been perfect even at the 24th fret of all strings. I cannot fault this guitar in any way except for the minor cosmetic blemishes I described. Buy this axe when you can find it.

My Killa Kramer

By Jim Melton

from Arizona

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

Read above, didn't know that they broke it down this way...
I've owned my Kramer axe for about 9 years and it still plays great. Just to let everyone know, that Kramer is NOT a generic brand. This guitar is made by Gibson, and plays/ acts like one as well. Mine came gloss black with white lightning bolts all over it. Mine's equipped with the Floyd Rose Floating Tremelo and that shows hardly any wear at all. This is a very well made 'lil axe. I also love the fact that it has a full 24 frets of metal destruction. I have mine paired up with my Fender Stage 160 twin cab amp. It gets so loud, it will rattle your teeth. I love the way it looks, with the all maple neck against the glossy black finish it has. The action on it is like rose petals, very easy to "flex" when playing. I've never owned a guitar that's this easy to hit harmonis with. When I'm playing lead, I can make her scream with harmonics that are way too easy to hit! I would recommend this guitar for any level of playing. Makes great sound and sustains so naturally that it should be outlawed. I would NEVER sell this axe for any reason at all...

decent guitar

By John Snarzyk

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

pretty good guitar. i've owned mine for about 4 years now. they are still made the same today besides the finish on mine is sunburst to black, the newer ones look like they fade out into a cherry red color. i did have to replace the tremolo system on mine. the actual floyd rose itself had a very hard plastic base on mine, with metal string locks and everything. two bolts got stripped and one broke off, so i couldnt change the strings... so i finally bought another complete floyd rose to put on it. im still happy with the guitar itself it has held up pretty well, sounds great for all types of music. i think its a sick looking guitar, nothing to over the top, nothing stupid looking.

Simply amazing

By james hildebrand

from Athens, Georgia

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

I owned an Epi Les Paul and never got used to the thick neck. I bought a used Kramer Striker 424, had a friend of mine replace the stock pick ups, and I've been in love with it every since. The neck plays like butter. Well built axe that rocks. My only complaint, a minor one, is that this is my first maple neck guitar, and with my poor eyesight, I find it harder to see the strings than with a rosewood fretboard.
But the guitar stays in tune and sounds incredible.
The one I own has the splatter body.
You can't buy a better guitar for this price.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS GUITAR!

By Retired Grunt

from Colorado Springs

Comments about Kramer Striker Custom FR-424CM Electric Guitar:

WHOA! I bought this two months ago to replace a Strat that was ripped off. (Friggin shame the thiefs house burnt down a couple of weeks later) I played a Kramer Striker ST100 when I was a kid and I loved it. My Les Paul standard collected a lot of dust after I bought the striker. I didn' know what to expect when I bought this guitar. I'm older with about 25 more years of experience so I opted on the safe side and bought some quality hardware for it. A real Floyd Rose, an SD 100 for the neck and a Steves Special for the bridge. For kicks and grins I got a trem setter. If The Striker was the only guitar I owned all of that would have been a waste of money. Everything about this guitar is Amazing. The sound is Hot on the bridge pickup nice and smooth in the middle Warm and Fuzzy on the neck. The trem goes right to zero on its own and the neck just shreds. After I scalloped the frets on the Striker Custom,I put the Dimarzios and Floyd Rose in the dean Vandetta 4.0 and put my other Strat on Moth Balls. What a DEAL!
