    Default Gibson Kramer 84

    Did anyone see that they have released this guitar again?
    I always wanted one when the 84 reissue was out, but then they stopped producing them.

    A little more expensive now, but hopefully the price drops like it did for the 84 reissue. I remember those being around 800 dollars.

    yeah they are really decent guitars. Very similar to the music yo 84s with a few small changes.

    very smooth axes though...

    Ive only played a black music yo 84.
    That was at a guitar shop years ago and i didn't even plug it in.
    Must try a new one sometime.

    The new ones bear only a cosmetic resemblance to the original, or the Musicyo 84s. No
    skunk stripe, different pickup, body wood...

    Not a great representation of the original.

    I'd rather buy a vintage Kramer than anything made by gibson. And for the same price you can have a Barretta.

    I'll have to check that out.

    And there is a gibson store nearby....I'll have to see if they have any of the 84's and take a camera and do some playing, and see how it is.

    I played one of these at NAMM. It's not really that close to the holy grail '84s. My guitar teacher from when I was a kid bought one of the '84s when the guys from Kramer were driving around to each music store in NJ, pitching them. He got one of the very first ones and I played that one a lot. That neck was magic. Another good buddy bought one about a year later once the logo had changed. It was the candy apple red one like Sammy plays in the LWAN video. It also had a great neck. The Gibson neck felt way, way thicker. And the headstock doesn't have the same shape. It's a subtle, but noticeable difference. I'd rather do my own build for less money.

    yeah I had a yo one too and that makes for a good 5150 replica. However the black hardware (other than tuners) does make for a good 1984 EVH replica (Good Enough) guitar from the 5150 tour.
