Hello!

Looks like the Kramer SM-1 pickings are getting pretty low online...and thought I'd snatch one up soon. I'd like a candy red one, but it looks like only the black or white ones are still available.

How is the current/latest/(last?) production of those? I have not played a SM-1 yet...

Like any well-made $600-700 asian guitar from the same factory. The only bad thing about them is the "sticky" finish, but the back of the neck can be sanded off easily.

Here's one on eBay pretty cheap. Missing the middle pickup, but I would probably end up changing the stock pickups on the SM1 anyway.

Fair price there. With new black pot caps and a new trem arm, it'll look great.

Looks like it already got some new pups too.

Necks on those seem to be somewhat thicker.

yep, according to Kevin Bebout at Kramer, based on a guitar neck Eddie Van Halen used in the early 1980's
