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.

Simply amazing

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!

Great Guitar for the price and more!!!!

By Ali Kushanfar

from San Francisco,

See all my reviews

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!!!!!!!

<< OUR LITTLE SECRET >>

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

Amazing, it is the only thing I can say about the workmanship on this guitar. The fretboard takes a little getting used to but after that it's amazing. The reason I gave the value 3 is because the stock pickups are horrible (too muddy and bassy). I threw in a dimarzio ej set and dimarzio area 61 pickup and this thing sings. I dont pick up my $1000 ibanez any more. I can now take this guitar from a sweet and creamy jazz/les paul sound all the way to metal. Get it professionally setup, throw on some good strings (gibson vintage), change the pickups .. and man you will have saved yourself at least $1000 .. DONT LET THE PRICE OF THIS GUITAR FOOL YOU .. SOLID PRODUCT ..

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

This is a very good guitar for the money.It has great harmonics and sustain.It also stays in tune very well.I gave it a 4.5 because when they cut the center hole out for the dual rail pick up,they did not cut the hole big enough to remove the layout ink line marking,then they did not sand the line out and clear coated over it.Other wise this thing is GREAT and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a rocking guitar.

This Striker is a Liker

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

This is one great axe, especially for the price. The Striker plays and sounds just as good as my more expensive guitars. It has a very nice finish, great sustain, and the Floyd Rose works great and keeps it in tune no matter how hard I play it. I highly recommend this guitar, great value.

GREAT STEAL

By rlsnowboarder

from Red Lodge, MT

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

Everyone should buy this guitar! Ive had mine for about a year and man this thing knows how to shred. Perfect fretboard and once tuned you never tune it again. This guitar also has coil tapping via a push pull hat witch widens the range of sond alot to near strat sound. Over all I highly recomend you buy this, it is a great deal and is a very good guitar for experts and beginners alike.

incredible guitar

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

I bought this guitar a few days ago and it was amazing. Features: The floyd rose is great, once you got it ready too go it never goes out of tune. plus the coil tapping is really great if you want a brighter thinner stratocaster sound.Quality: The guitar is very well built, incredibly fast and the floyd rose is great. The only issue was a loose input jack but that was an easy fix.Value: this is one of the best playing guitars ive seen, it plays better than jacksons that cost 3 times as much, and the pickups sound good. Overall: this guitar is amazing it feels like a cross between an ibanez and a stratocaster. also you can that stratocaster tone or that thicker meaner humbucker sound due too the coil tapping. plus this guitar is amazingly fast. This guitar is perfect if your into 80's shred or neoclassical

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

Usually, guitars around this price made from agathis body-which is many luthiers underestimate this type of wood. So, its a good news that this kramer made from alder body. Also, I think you shouldn't replace the pickups because for me they're great! Very unique thick and chunky sound...it looks so beautiful with flame maple top. Mine is vintage sunburst.I've own it for 3 months now..and the only bad thing is, the tremolo arm need to be replaced. Also, mine makes a lot of noise if I push the potensio knob. So I'm looking forward to rewire it and buy a tremolo arm now

Better Then an Epi???!!!!!

By Kramerguy1

from NY

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

It's true, this thing blows the epiphone lp 100 away. This Kramer is by far the best thing I have ever played in my life, and I played alot of great things. The quad rails can give you a smooth clean blues sound or you crank up the treble and a perfect zeppelin worthy guitar. I gave it a 4 for over all because I think this would look bettern with a rose wood fret board. other than that everything is great. It stays in tune for a good chunk of time even if you go all out with the floyd, good tone, perfect weight, great guitar

Excellent guitar!!!

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

I've owned my guitar for about a year, and it is excellent. The finish is top notch, but even better is the way the guitar plays. You can get harmonics all the way to the 24th fret. The tone is amazing. The coil tap gives real nice strat tones when pulled up, and true heavy metal tone when pushed down, in all 5 pickup positions. I will definitely buy another one, or more of these guitars. I keep my present guitar tuned to Eb, but I want one I can keep in standard tuning, maybe tune one to D.I plan to order a 422, & put a van halen paint job on it, after all EVH used these guitars & I already know you couldn't buy the parts & build one without spending a lot more money than this.

EXPLOSION for you buck!

By Kramerman

from Lakeville, MN

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

This is a completely honest review and I have to say that this thing suprised me completely. I saw reviews, kind of heard what it sounds like but there is no guitar center where you can try this thing out. So it was all chance when I bought it. I had high expectations and this thing still boggled my mind! The tone is very good for that cheap of a guitar and the pickups are interesting, but I really like them. I may or may not change them in the future. I can get Dimebag squeals all the way up to the second. So they're very high output pickups, but way on the bassy side. I had to turn the bass down on my amp and crank the highs. It's also coil split which makes the clean sound very tasty. Even though the floyd is licensed, it hasn't given me one problem and holds tune very well. I'm very pleased.I couldn't imagine a better guitar for the price! Buy it now!

Wow, For the price!

By Anonymous

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

Okay, I've had this guitar for about three months now. And all I can say is WOW. I can get a VERY wide veriety of sounds out of it since it has a coil splitted humbucker, single and a humbucker. It has an extended reach input, so if you step on your cable it wont automatically come out!. The neck is great, the finish on the guitar is great. and the Dual rail pickups give you a really, heavy distortion. All in all for the price, this thing is simply amazing, and i dont see why anyone would spend more money on a guitar that would have the same value as this amazing Kramer.

Nice guitar for nice price

By the shredder-W721U

from Kettering, OH

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

This guitar is definitly a steal!!! I've had this guitar for 4 months and it still plays great! The only problem is mine came completely unsetup. Every thing had to be adjusted. The pickups are nice and get a good distortion sound. The floyd is pretty good, its a license but hey a floyd is a floyd. Everyone has admired its stunning finish. I have the cherry sunburst and it is awesome. Another great thing is there is an allen wrench holder on the back of the headstock;that is a genius invention! However, the neck isn't as thin as I thought, its more strat thin than Ibanez or Jackson thin. Overall, it's a great guitar and I think it's suitible for anyone at any skill level. Its nice to know that Kramer is made be Gibson now! Rock on Kramer!
