Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great Sound (pickups) and Sustain.Strings action looked like they where a mile away from the frets,neck (truss rod) was not adjusted correctly.Once everything got adjusted buzz,buzz and more buzz frets started coming loose.Kramer dropped the ball on this one. General Your general opinion of this product. Get ready to spend a few 100 of dollars on neck and fret work. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? EMG's pickups sound awesome full and HOT. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint looks great.
this thing is a versatile tone machine!!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? ver ywell-made, MIK quality that compares favorably to LTDs and Schecters! General Your general opinion of this product. great reissue of the classic Stagemaster series, I'm playing this all the time, it reminds me of my USA Jackson Soloist, only with better pick-ups and switchinmg options Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? this is where this guitar totally shines---all the options at your fingertips, you can literally playanything with it--the Duncan Cool Rails and Alternative 8 does deliver!! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? finish is strong and solid plus beautiful, a light creamy white color

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar is very well made, with quality components and workmanship throughout. Original Floyd Rose, Duncan pickups, ebony board, neck through construction, etc. General Your general opinion of this product. This is obviously a reissue of the late 80s arch top Kramer Stagemaster. It's very well made, but feels more like a Gibson than my original 80s Stagemaster. (Gibson owns Kramer now.) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The Duncan version actually has a Duncan Alternative 8 in the bridge and two Cool Rails, not the Duncan JB/Hot Rails combo cited by AMS. The Alt 8 has more output and bass than a Duncan JB. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish and binding are absolutely flawless. Big thumbs up here.
