Hey guys, I came here from lurking on the old forum for a few years but never joined up. I'm a middle age dude that grew up loving the 70's and 80's rock.

Because of this of course I love Kramers, B.C. Rich, Dean, Charvels, Hamer and Jackson guitars among others. I currently have two Kramer Gibson Baretta's and looking to expand the Kramer part of my collection, although here in Toronto Canada new Kramers are practically non existent anymore. I'm a little concerned about this... At any rate hi to all the regulars here and I hope I can contribute to growing the new forum some if I can.
(I posted this on the other new Kramer guitar forum as well. I'm not sure which one is where everyone went to from the old forum. Seems like this is the most active place).

Hello and welcome, FS. All of those brands you mentioned have appeal to me personally. We can all speculate what Gibson will do with the Kramer name. I kinda hope they just sell it to the right group of visionaries. We shall see.

Welcome aboard, your taste in guitars leads me to believe your going to fit right in with this wonderful forum.

This is a cool place to show members your latest acquisitions, be it old or new, but it really goes beyond that ... lots of knowledge here to be learned and shared, collaborate on projects with fellow members, lots of great talent here (musically and in many other realms related to guitar building, and even raising goats).

I'm not going to say anything negative about our Facebook brothers forum, but this forum has it all and is a special place.

just to be clear, I mean no offense to anyone on facebook, I just hate facebook in general, even though sometimes you have to use that social tool just to get things you want...

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I love it here already. :toast

Yeah I'm not a Fender guy really but I love Superstrats and their descendants. As far as Fender goes I like mustangs for some reason scratch_head . Probably because of the grunge thing but also because I like the short scale and Kurt played them so...they're cool (even though I hated Grunge for helping put the final nail into the coffin of hair metal). I kinda like Jaguars too (again thanks to Kurt).

I also have a love of Les Pauls. They just look, sound and feel "right" to me. Slash, Marc Bolan, Scott Gorham, Gary Moore and Tom Scholtz had a lot to do with shaping my love for Les Pauls.

But I have a huge place in my heart for superstrats and anything 1980's... :bananahead

Yup I feel the same way. I really prefer forums and never liked Facebook all that much. My profile there is bare bones just to keep in touch with a few old friends. I post nothing there for half a year or more at a time.

I'm super happy you all started this new forum. :jump

Ok this is all I have for now. I may take this one back though because the paint is foggy/blotchy.

Another. See the cloudy paint. It's not even. But I think this is the last one they have in Canada right now. They are the main distributor for Canada. But they may get a shipment in soon so I might return it still I have time. What do you guys think?
