Thanks for the add!! I got this guitar in a trade and was told it was made by Gibson in the USA. Quality makes me think this is legit but wanted to try to verify. Grover tuners and I'm guessing the pickups have been swapped. Is there a way to tell what series the Floyd Rose bridge is?I've seen other Pacer classic series online but the natural figured headstock is throwing me off. Also, any idea of current value?? Any and all info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!! Joe

Welcome.
These classic series were Indonesian made.
They had factory no-name electronics & tuners. Kramer branded lic Floyd. Cheap stuff.
I will say the HS on yours has some nice flame. :thumbs
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Any way to post sharper photo of the main body? Tuners and DiMarzios suggest upgrades, so would be lucky score for you if the Floyd by chance also was upgraded. That flame looks really nice, never seen one like that before.

That´s an upgraded Kramer Pacer Classic. Made in Indonesia. One of the older batches - say somewhat around 2012 - the later ones have matching headstocks. Bodies made from Nato, some sort of quick growing and even quicker dried asian mahogany, necks made of maple.

Upgrades: DiMarzio Pickups, Grover Tuners, FRT1000 (I´d say, I don´t think someone really put an OFR MIG in there), standard size toggle switch, period correct Speed Knobs.

That intense quilt on the headstock is completely unrelated to the bare-bones rest of the maple neck. Wonder how that came to be scratch_head .
