Gibson Kramer 84 or Evh 5150?

Post by sixxdoguk » Tue Apr 04, 2017 2:54 pm

What do we think? Vast price difference. The Kramer has a seymour duncan and floyd 1000 the EVH has stock EVH and is nearly double the price.. Is the paint job and a hamer stlyle headstock worth the extra money? Would a Mean Street custom be better? I have the Kramer 84 modded with a brass block and evh dtuna. love it.

MeanStreet would be better quality IMO.
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Save the cash and get the real thing (used). None of those is like a real Kramer.

Get a real deal used one or go to some aftermarket place like Mean Street or Musikraft.
Practice cures most tone issues.
