They have got a new boss so things may be different now.

I bought two SM1’s back when they first came out. I still have them and I’m very happy with them.

I bought a Baretta Vintage. It’s a bit heavy (almost a pound more than my 87) and I’m very happy with it.

I didn’t like the entire Pacer line. In fact , I returned a brand new one.

I’ve had at least 6 Baretta Specials and I kept two. I love them.

I’ll certainly pick up a Nightswan, if I can get one.

I don’t care where they’re made. I care how they play. I’ll reserve judgement until I play one.

Also, I must be lucky ( no sarcasm intended). Sam Ash in Tampa carried all of the models I purchased, so I didn’t have to buy them sight unseen

Well, they say Chinese guitars reached US quality (e.g. The 60's Tribute+, Bonamassa signature model). Plus we are not drowning in negativity. Some of us just got used to "made in Korea" or "made in USA" axes. That doesn't mean we will not buy new MIC Epiphones or Kramers.

It doesn't matter how the guitar sounds or if it is MIC or not. Its how it looks;) You know, hockey stick headstocks, maple boards, etc. One more time we are not drowning in negativity. We hate because we care ;)

I still want my vintage Kramers, my 60s les pauls and when im feelin like it the sweet bell tone of my vintage hardtail Fender. I saved money for a long time to get each one of those.

but hey, its your prerogative to get the 2-for-2$ meal deal at Macdonalds everytime. And, you know what, they say the burger at Mickey D's is almost as good as a home-made gourmet burger.

I luv my vintage Kramers but will be in the market for a new Swan & SM-1, maybe a Retta vintage too :yikes

Like Tommy said above, I don't really care where they are gonna be made as long as the quality is good & they play good then that'll do for me :thumbs

I had a Burger King Whopper for lunch yesterday. It was better than the one I had at Ruby Tuesdays over the weekend, which cost three times as much.

I'm def gonna have to go check out the new kramer guitars at a local shop.

I think the re-issues will bring the OG price back down to earth. like why spend 5k when you can buy new right?

My concern is if the re-issue swan has a Ebony board or fony ebonol.

I really want to like it.
