This is a great guitar. The only problem is that the pickups have to much bass. If you like to play on a high gain setting like me you should have no problem and you wont have to swap pickups. Even though the trem is a Kramer Licensed Floyd Rose it keeps the guitar in tune very well. This guitar also has the thinnest neck I've ever played on, great for shredding. If you like to shred hard rock/heavy metal this is the guitar for the right price. BUY IT!

I bought this guitar from now-defunct online music store about 4 years ago because I wanted to have something affordable. The QuadRail pickups are very hot. The neck has the same feel as a Jackson Dinky. My main gripe is the quality of the parts they used. The tone knob on my guitar broke and the saddles on the licenced floyd are of uneven size (wierd!), so the string height of each individual saddle are not leveled... Yes, I did measure the string height. So I replaced it with a Floyd Rose II bridge, same with the tone knob. Overall, it is still a very good and affordable guitar.

EXCELLENT value!

By QNman

from St. Louis

Floyd Rose, "dual coil" humbucking pickups, excellent finish... for $250? This guitar is an excellent value for most of us! I play in my basement with my son, not professionally. For my "home use", this guitar is hard to beat for overall value.I replaced an older POS Washburn. This guitar is just miles nicer.

pretty good guitar

By music man123

from ny

Well, i bought this guitar 2 1/2 yrs. ago. so far i use it in live performances and recordings. it is a pretty good guitar, the only thing that i dont like is that the input jack constantly loosens up causing it to get bad quality sound. it gets the job done, and it dose what it says it will. it just DOS'NT do any thing more. i find that kind of anoying. if i had to make the choice of buying it again..........i probably would. i probably wouldnt use it as much as i do now.

wow!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

2 years has gone by now and I still have this Kramer. This guitar sounds like a beast compared to my carvin pickups fender strat. The overall build is strong and durable. The paint is fantastic. The Floyd tremolo is holding up well. pick ups never sounded better. If you're thinking about buying this buy it now!! you wont regret it.

The $249 guitar that could

This guitar is an absolute gem,i have been playing for years and own many guitars.I would say this is a $800 guitar with a much lower price tag.The only con on mine is that the trem arm is very tight and will take time to break in but no biggy.If you like super strats in the vein of the 80's metal monster shredders then this is for you.It also sounds great for crunching,devistating riffs.

Surprising for the price

By Traumamike

from St.Petersburg,Fl.

Guitar needs professional set-up to realize potential as a really good axe. Quality/appearance,action,tuning keys,fretboard,action,even electronics-all remarkable for what this guitar cost. I have a collection of many very pricey guitars-I play this as much as any of them. It feels like a good fitting pair of blue jeans.

This Guitar SHREDS!!!

By EJG5150

from Sacramento CA

I bought this Kramer just so I could have a guitar with a Floyd Rose and Kramer was a name I could trust. Well this guitar took a few months to get used to but it really was built solidly. I eventually made it so the trem could only be lowered and now it sound INCREDIBLE. I recommend it to ANYONE beginner or pro.

This is impressive

By Zakkfan1994

from New Orleans, LA

I own a jackson rhoads, epi custom LP, and the kramer striker im not an amazing guitarist but im pretty good i have a zakk wylde style and i know whats good and whats bad and this guitar for the price is good. The pickups have nice sound, gain, and if your gear is setup correctly then itll get good sustain. My only complaint is the floyd is a cheaper version so i got an original floyd put on it NOW ITS A BEAST. I recommend people to buy this, it was my first guitar and i still love it. Its at a reasonable price for people with a low budget...(like me) :/ but it is worth saving up for all in all GREAT GUITAR.

This is great!!

By King Cole

from Boone, NC

This guitar was purchased by a friend who brought it over to my house. This is the first floyd I have ever played and I have to say my next guitar will have a floyd, no doubt. Their were some issues with the floyd when he first got it, but I took the back plate off and it was pretty much common sence on how to fix it and then it was back to normal. My only complaint about this guitar that I noticed almost immediatley was the pickups. The pickups are super basey and look like they came from a candy store, but just swap them out and you have a good guitar. I once heard from a friend a floyd rose trem was a waste of money, because of how long it takes to tune; that is what made me buy the guitar I have now which has no floyd. This my friends is deceiving. If you have no brain, but can still breathe you can tune a guitar with a floyd. Get a floyd. Get a Kramer. Well worth the money for the setup.This is a good buy!

Great For Smooth Jazz!

By Anonymous

I love this guitar! I bought it a few weeks ago and it is the best jazz machine I have ever heard! No other guitar can touch this one when it comes to jazz/ fusion.
