just picked up a Kramer 84 model in ruby red. Fuck yea!!! Been jonesing for a Kramer for quite awhile and this one popped up local. I'm stoked. Need another trem arm if anybody has a spare....owner lost it....
They should bring back USA Kramers
I despise 3 hb guitars but I would rock the fuck out of that....They tried back in the mid/late 2000's, but there wasn't enough momentum to keep them going. Back when the original Kramer Forum was still going strong, we used to have a Kramer Konvention in Nashville about every year. Kramer (Gibson) displayed the new USA stuff one year and some of us even got tour the Gibson factory, and the smaller Kramer division to see some prototypes they were coming up with (which included a USA Nightswan that was sitting in the corner of one of the offices in the Kramer Division, special graphic Baretta's and Pacer Imperials, etc). Some of the KF oldtimers bought some of these protos and still have them AFAIK, but I haven't really been part of that world for a looong time. LOL
I found this picture of a proto USA Kramer Sambora with WWII Fighter Graphics from that time:
