But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

lol, well its no carerra but I do think an ebony board beak might be cool.

most of the stuff they have been putting out have been beginner and mid tier grade stuff. so far nothing Gibson has done with the brand has really impressed me.

and well I can't really comment of the reissue non-tilt rettas as.... nobody has had their pre-order shipped yet...
I own kramers :mrgreen

I wish they would make a proper Kramer beak shape. Other than the ‘08 Pacer reissues, the beak headstock they use on all the different Pacer models always looks off to me.

You're not wrong!

Looks like they gave it the ol' Gib-Kramer round over.

Though I don't find it as offensive as the non-pointy pointy... even though I own a couple. shrug

+1

I'd buy a Jax or a Charvel any given day over the stuff Kribson is putting out under the name "Kramer" since 2010.
Practice cures most tone issues.

Gibson have exploited the Kramer name with cheap beginner level mass made low denominator guitars. A saturated mass market.

Zero fucks give by them - the guitar that started as the US non-tilt white baretta in the EVH advert is now a shitty baretta special in purple made in the cheapest overseas factory they can exploit.

Their range is just garbage along with a few reasonable re-issues that do a job. Its shameful.

I don't recall that being released. It can't be a new model with a 2021 serial scratch_head

Here’s another one with a different serial number… 23112901948… Maybe they’re using the Gibson YDDDY… serial number format, making these both 2022 builds?

EDIT: that looks too much like an Epiphone Serial number actually. Guessing the 21 one was a proto for press pics, and the 23 one was recently built and is out in the wild.

There’s also a listing on Manny’s Australia… but it has the same stock pics as the EBay one.

Nothing says "rock & roll" like fast cars and fast guitars! So, Kramer decided to bring them together with the Pacer Carrera, a Seymour Duncan®-equipped tone machine with a shred-ready ebony fretboard and a sleek, Black gloss finish inspired by the fastest cars on four wheels. The satin-finished maple neck has a slim profile for the ultimate in control and comfort as you weave your way around the track.

And the hot-rodded Seymour Duncan SH-2N neck and JB bridge pickups are well-known for cranking out plenty of horsepower and tonal variety. Add a genuine Floyd Rose™ 1000 Series vibrato and R2 Locking Nut, and you've got an axe that's just begging to be played fast and mean. A Kramer premium gig bag is included.

Features

Pacer maple body
Maple slim profile neck with ebony fingerboard
Neck Pickup: Seymour Duncan SH-2N, Bridge Pickup: Seymour Duncan JB
Scale length: 648 mm
Number of frets: 22
41.3 mm wide Floyd Rose R2 Lock Nut
Bridge: Floyd Rose 1000 Series Tremolo
Tuners: Kramer Premium Black Die Cast
Controls: Master Volume, Neck Pickup Tone, Bridge Pickup Tone
Premium Kramer Gig bag included
