Everyone has the right to define anything in their own mind the way they want.HowlinWolf wrote: ↑Sat Mar 02, 2019 12:17 amI have a Pacer similar to that but in trans red. It is sitting in a case as I prefer playing my other Kramers at the moment, especially my Japanese ones. It is definitely not a parts guitar if it came out of the factory that way, or else every guitar that has ever out is a parts guitar if you look at it that way. You cannot fault that Pacer for its looks... it looks great and congrats to the new owner.
Technically if a guitar is made from a neck crafted by one luthier and a body manufactured by a different luthier that its a parts guitar.
Fullerton made Fenders were not parts guitars.
Gibson guitars made in Kalamazoo, Michigan not parts guitars
Kramer guitars where the body and neck are manufactured by Sports not parts guitars
Kramer guitars where both parts manufactured by ESP not parts guitars
Early Kramers with ESP Strat head necks and bodies made elsewhere but painted at the same paint shop = parts guitars
Kramers Pacers with ESP beak necks and bodies made elsewhere = parts guitars
1983 Kramer Baretta with Holy Grail ESP non-tilt neck and body made elsewhere = parts guitar
not to say any of these guitars dont rock
