Product Description

The Kramer Pacer Vintage Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose is a tribute to the era when shred was king. The Pacer Vintage is based on one of Kramer's most popular and historic guitars and features a maple body and 25.5 inch, 22 fret Maple neck and board sear.

Kramer added the truss rod adjustment to the headstock, so no more taking those necks off for adjustment (like some of those other guys). The Pacer Vintage has a USA Seymour Duncan JB bridge and JN pickups. Each is controlled by 2 push/pull series parallel coil tap volume controls with volume bleed mods, 1 tone control and a 3-way mini toggle switch for endless tonal varieties.

The Pacer was built for ultimate playability and sports the same neck profile as the famed 83 Pacer but added the 12 inch radius fingerboard for classic comfort and bends that never plink out.

The Kramer Pacer Vintage Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose Features

  • Truss rod adjustments on headstock
  • Same neck profile as 83 Pacer
  • Maple body
  • 12 inch radius fingerboard
  • USA Seymour Duncan JB bridge

What is your opinion of this product?
OFR, SD pickups, push/pull coil taps. so many great features at a great price. The reason for four starts is, it is heavy, and required a full setup to get it right including truss rod adjustment and intonation adjustment. It is now a permanent member of my collection.

Good bang for the buck
What is your opinion of this product?
I have 2 if these,the magenta and the green one.Great guitars .The magenta one came with a hardball case,but the green one didnt.Don't know why.Dincan pickups and a Floyd Rose trem.The green came and was setup bad from the factory,no big deal since I use A different gauge of strings.So a quick setup and the guitar was fine.Fir being an import guitar the frets ends are smooth,neck reminds of the old school Kramers.Great bang for the buck if your looking for a Floyd equipped guitar

More versatile than you may think
What is your opinion of this product?
Well, I must say, I bought this thinking, ok, van Halen all the way, but I'm glad it's not that way really. I love vh to death but I have played and own wolfgangs and this is a versatile breath of fresh air really. First, the trem is set to float. Vh heresy! But it's not bad at all. You can do Jeff beck, satriani, and believe it or not, strat stuff like, gilmour, clapton, and any strat stuff you may enjoy because the coils split and you can roll off the volume and get those sounds too. And the fret board feels like a strat because it's all maple with smaller frets. Yes, fender style medium jumbo frets. And a 12 inch radius which means some curve, but not extremely flat either. I hate when a guitar frets out, and this is like a gibson or even an eric Johnson shape, but remember no lacquer! Just a satin, or bare wood feel. It's not a thin neck like ibanez! It's classic, it's capable of vh too, just not exact because of the floating trem and the Duncan's may not be vh's preference, but it still does pretty good. Maple body is a little heavey, bit if George lynch can do it.... It's not that bad, really. Tone is worth it. All quality. Korean, yes. So what??? I have american made too...quality as well. Plus I'm thinking the neck looks quarter sawn to me. Only real down side was I thought it came with a hard case, but mine did not. Had to order separately and at this point it was hard to find. Awesome emerald finish too. I dont know what kramer's future is, but I'm glad to own this even though I used to hate kramer because in the late 80's I got kramer's ending junk. That's ok, it's all good now...

Heavy better for short term use a full night on stage may break you.
What is your opinion of this product?
Super sick looks, heavy not fully upgraded. That is good for me I like dunkin's and the flowed needs a replacement block to build the tone. A far better guitar would be a signature sterling music man Jhon p 150 fully up graded with most of this stuff for the $700 range, but you want deny the killer looks of the pacer tiger.

"I love this thing" "Well worth the money"
What is your opinion of this product?
I own many guitars enough to open my own shop in fact many are vintage 80's guitars and these play better than some of the American Kramers of the day enough that I own 4 of these in different colors plus two of the Baretta models too

Great Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
This axe is perfect for 80s gigs. The Floyd Rose Tremelos are the best I've used. I had a Kramer like this when I was in high school (in the 80s) and played in a band with almost every song used a Tremelos for pitch bends and dive bombs. The guitar has a feature that is ingenious. The Allen wrenches you need are fastened to the back of the head for quick access instead of searching through my gear bag for one.

What a pleasant surprise.
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this on a whim. I owned dozen of Kramers back in the 80's. Even then they were just so so guitars they never lived up to the hype in my eyes. They were nothing compared to the Jackson and Charvels of that area. So now that I'm old and a long time guitar buddy and I were talking he had said he pre ordered the satchel signature model. So I decided to take a look at the guitar I have seen him play the tiger stripe pacer. The price seem good and the reviews on here are all favorable. So I decided to take a chance with one of these Korean made kramers. This being my first order with AMS in years. First thing AMS is great and I will be sure to order more from them in the future. The guitar came FAST well packaged and in mint condition. This is not my first guitar though the mail I have been ordering guitars for 35 years. It took me about 5 minets to set the guitar up the way I like it to play this thing is far better then the 80's Kramers I love it Yes I would buy more and will.

Beautiful Guitar.
What is your opinion of this product?
Awesome guitar, Feels great and sounds even better.
Out of box quality is excellent, it plays any genre of music.
Controls are not hard to get too. I think the neck is fast.
Very bright
Could not ask for a better finish, I bought the tiger finish and it looks awesome.
I have played a fair amount of guitars in this price range, I was debating on whether or not to take the risk on this Kramer because you do not see any of them around, and I am really glad I did. Its unique to any other guitar in this price range.
Perfect. The box was packaged great, everything was tuned and in spotless condition. Thank you AMS.

More than i expected!
What is your 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.
Versatile tones. Adjust your playing and there you go. All in all I want another.
Very comfortable neck, very smooth and fast.
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.
Perfect finish.
The price is amazing for what you'll get.
I reset the guitar for Eb tuning so the original wouldn't have worked for me anyway but the original setup was close.

Kramer Pacer Vintage - Tiger Stripe
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.
After a month owning this guitar, it has held up well to daily play. I haven't gigged with it yet but do not foresee any problems doing so.
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.
The next is like a thicker Fender Strat neck. It is not thin or low profile like an Ibanez or Jackson Soloist. It is lightweight and plays similar to a Charvel Pro Mod and other super strats out there.
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.
The paint was perfect. No scratches, cracks, chips or other issues.
The action was high for my taste and there was some buzzing on the higher frets on certain notes which is not all that uncommon coming from a factory setup. A quick trip setup at a guitar shop fixed the issue.
