    Alright, I put in an EVH/Bourns low-friction volume pot, wired in a 750k resistor (brings the output resistance to a measured 302k), and swapped out the factory sustain block with a Floyd Rose 42mm big brass block. It’s nice and growly, and no more spikiness!!!

    I really like it! It’s got a bit more attitude than the striped series 5150 for sure! I’m assuming it’s alder vs basswood body, and the EVH Frankenstein Humbucker vs the EVH Wolfgang Humbucker. The 5150 is still a freaking awesome guitar - I absolutely love it - but it’s more “polite” sounding (for lack of a better word)… and the Kramer is more like “fuck you” sounding.

    I always love the mess left after screwing around with guitars…

    I’ll be putting this guitar through the paces over the long weekend… hopefully my other guitars don’t get too jealous.

    All-in-all, the Kramer 84 series are pretty awesome little guitars. I’d highly recommend them. They’re super playable out of the box (literally, a freaking box!). I just had to fiddle-diddle with mine a bit, because… well… that’s just how I am! Lol!

    Now I have to keep myself from ordering one of those EVH Limited Edition 5150 Deluxe Ash numbers… ugh.
