General What is your overall opinion of this product? I bought the Tiger stripe just because I like Steel Panther. I figured it would be a wall hanger. I was wrong This guitar plays better than some guitars costing thousands more. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Versatile tones. Adjust your playing and there you go. All in all I want another. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very comfortable neck, very smooth and fast. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? I'm just use to brighter pickups. The Jb is a bit dark for my tastes, but a quick adjustment on the amp and all is fine. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Perfect finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The price is amazing for what you'll get. Playability How was the action out of the box? I reset the guitar for Eb tuning so the original wouldn't have worked for me anyway but the original setup was close.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Out of the box, the Pacer appeared to be well made. There were no cracks, chips, warped wood or other issues. The only thing I noticed was that the action was high from the factory and the edge of the frets weren't filed down so they were a little sharp mostly on the higher frets. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall the product is good. The factory setup isn't great. A few buzzing frets on the high frets, sharp fret edges and high action. The sound through my Marshall stack and through my heavier Peavey JSX is great. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The JB is bright and responsive. My only complaint is that the sustain sucks on single notes. I own a few Gibson Les Pauls and Fender American Strats and compared to them, the Kramer just doesn't have much sustain whatever. The notes trail off very fast. The pickups tone is very bright and it has a great attack. Through a high gain tube head, it really shines. The coil taps also work great and sound nice although they don't give you a real strat like single coil tone. More of a humbucker/single coil mix. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint was perfect. No scratches, cracks, chips or other issues.
