    A good friend of mine just ordered THIS GUITAR. Does anyone have any opinions of the guitar? The price is right, but I don't know about the quality of it. Did he make a good choice?

    P1 - no offense to your friend, but the new Music Yo Kramers are pieces of shit. They are not real Kramers, the name was bought and sold to some Korean company I believe (or Gibson bought it and is mass producing these cheap guitars, I forgot). They are not real Kramers like the ones from the 80's and early 90's. They don't play like old Kramers, sound like them, or made with the same workmanship. I wouldn't pay $2 for one, and a guy in my band actually bought one to bang around on it. Then I let him play MY '86 Baretta and he was like..."Uh....ok so there is a difference." Just a bit.

    That's what I was afraid of. That price seemed too good to be true. He has made some less than brilliant decisions in the past - like trading in his Les Paul black beauty and buying a Peavey Nitro. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] He's still kicking himself for that one. At least this time he didn't trade in his Strat.

    P1, Happy 8th B-Day to the Ticket!
    I don't know most of the pickers here, but in my opinion, the best guitar anyone is going to get for around $300 is a mexican strat. I would suggest sending that "Kramer" back and picking up a Strexican or investing some more denero in a better axe.

    He already has a Strat (American made) for blues. I think he was looking for more of a "metal" guitar (humbuckers, floyd, etc.) just to screw around on. It won't be his main guitar - just a beater.
    I have one of those Mexican Strats and I don't really like it that much. But it probably has more to do with my playing ability than the guitar!
