    Default Kramer Pacer

    Added a Floyd Rose brass block, brass claw and Floyd Rose noiseless springs to my Kramer Pacer. Pretty sweet upgrade, the guitar tone sounds so much better, has a bigger presence (if that makes sense).

    I didn't know they made noiseless springs! I've been doing a trick I read where I bought some clothesline and run it through the springs with a piece of guitar string. It works, but over time I'm sure the clothesline will dissolve and flake into the cavity. It's been probably nine years, though, and still working.

    That's lovely! I remember seeing an LTD much like that for $300 and I didn't buy it. In hindsight, would've been a cool deal!

    Nice looking guitar, as I said before, Scotty.
    Cool deal on the upgrades. I never did those to any of my guitars; only swapped out Sterling trems for Floyd Rose Specials, and added D-Tunas to a couple of them.

    Noiseless springs? Hmmm...

    One of these days I'm going to try one of those big brass blocks. They intrigue me.

    The brass block makes a big difference in tone and sustain.

    Are you moonlighting as Satchel? That's a super cool guitar
