    Man Kramer… I deleted my disparaging thread. But seriously. Think Twins, Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger. You know which is which. (It would have been even better as a Strathead)

      Very nice!

      I haven’t played a Kramer in 15 years or so

        The first three actually looks pretty decent to my eyes, the White Lotus is just meh. But the the Danger Zone and Hot Rod look like they are straight from a Toys-R-Us all in one starter set. But that's just my opinion, they might very well be dream guitars for someone....

          Those Kramers make me sad.

          Now, that bullseye Charvel on the other hand...I could get down with that!

            The Charvel is in a different class of guitar.

            The Kramers look something like if you asked a 13 year old to design something that 'looked cool if you were in the 80s' but had to use MS Paint from Win95 to design it.

                The Illusionist would keep me from ever looking at my pick hand. It is making me dizzy just looking at it here.

                    Yeah, man all these Kramers are just trash design full stop, but if they manage to sell, good of them. I still believe it's nothing else but a publicity stunt, no one in their own mind would even think about taking one single photo of such junk, let alone put them up for sale, the camera lens would just cringe and shrink!
                    L.E. Hold your horses folks, my wife likes the Feral Kunt and Viper. My 12yo thinks they're all "yeah nah"... De gustibus, the jury's still out there...

                      Ummm.... Hmmm......Umm...... Well..... Ummmm...... (scratches head)..... walks away.
                      The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

                        Oye. They did it again. As if the last attempt at a graphics series wasn't bad enough. Seriously, those don't even look like they are painted on but some decal that is slapped on and then clear coat over that. In fact, I bet that's exactly what they are. And that's a slap in the face to the graphics done in the 80's by Felise, Kline and Knapp. The "Hot Rod" is almost a straight up rip from the Charvel catalog. I don't think Kramer when I see flames on a guitar like that.

                        I'll stick with my vintage Kramer with a Kline graphic. I wish Gibson would let this brand die and rest in peace.

                          Dean has been building guitars in this niche and I think they do a better job with their graphics.

                            I was going to post the Hot Rod Charvel too.

                              Not my thing so much. I might play the hot rod, but it would have been better red or a warmer color. The 'danger zone' idea is ok, but not well executed. They should just sell blank bodies and a set of stickers and templates and you make it your own.
