Re: ESP guitars questions

: : Hi,

: : An original Floyd is actually produced by Floyd Rose. They are more sought after and built nicer.
: : A licenced Floyd is produced by someone else(like ESP)with the permission from Floyd Rose. They pay for this right.
: : These are generally made in Asia and are not as desierable as the originals. They are pretty good, just not as good.

: : Hope this helps.

Re: inventor of electric guitar info needed

: The inventor of the Electric Guitar is Mr. Terauchi Takeshi. His father was an electrician and he was tinkering with the radio set to connect it with the guitar. I do not know the exact date but it was invented in Japan. I just met this guy last week.
: He was 64 and still playing concerts. A really kind and nice guy who thinks of others before himself.

: I did not read the follow ups so I do not know if you already knew.

: Thanks

he invented the guitar in the 1930"s

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

: : Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?

I have two Baretta's. Both have nice actions and play well. Since I play several different styles of music, they obviously don't suit my needs all night long, but pieces of crap? Certainly not.

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

The NEW KRAMERS are certainly not peices of crap, and whoevr says so does not know what they are talking about

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

: : Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?

: I saw these guitars at hairballmusic.com awhile ago. I looked at what they are made of and they are true pieces of crap. you really don't expect to get a quality guitar for what they are asking. If you really want to get a piece of crap guitar, that sounds good, buy a danelectro. The original Kramers were crap, and these follow in the tradition

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

Ben doesn't have a clue - Barrettas are great, the new one's are great (not as good as the USA made, but GREAT for the price). Also, MusicYo.com is the only people who carry Kramer - they've got exclusive rights to the brand.

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

This is quite an interesting post. The new Kramers are junk, Ben is right about that. Serious players don't consider them real instruments, they are more like toys. The original Kramer guitars manufactured in the USA in the 1980's were very high quality guitars. The original company's Baretta was designed by Ed Van Halen. It's a shame that Gibson ruined the good name of Kramer. The Kramers by Gibson are made in Korea from extremely low grade wood. What do you expect for a $69 guitar? Musicyo is the only place selling the Kramers by Gibson because they could not get any real retailers to sell them. Gibson bought the Kramer name in 1998 and tried to marjet them for two years before starting up Musicyo. Musicyo is a division of Gibson, they sell all of Gibson's low end brands.

: : Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?

: Suggest you check out the review reprinted from Guitar Magazine at www.musicyo.com. The review is more favorable than Ben's. However, musicyo sells Kramer, which explains why they reprinted the article.

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

: Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?

I'm looking for a backup/2nd guitar, and both the new vangaurd and striker models looked like they might be a good deal, but for those prices I was skeptical, I know that such people as dave mustaine and eddie van halen played them, would they be worth it?

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

Does anyone know anything about the Kramer "American"

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

: Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?
I`m sorry but no questions there, but I am curious
about the nightrider and whats up with left handed
models in general. Is there a problem with the floyd
rose trems? If this guitar was available lefty, I
would give my left or I should say right nut for it.
Please inform. Thanks...Kerry Velleff

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

I dunno from experience because I've never owned a Kramer, but I AM interested in buying because for days I looked for reviews and so far, all of them were GOOD reviews(well, except for 1 or 2, which is understandable!), so I would encourage you to try it since it's really not a lot of money. If it sounds horrible, hang it up as art or something! ^_^

Re: New Kramer guitars (Gibson era)

: Does anybody have any opinions on the New Kramer guitars,namely the Barettas?
I recently purchased a New Kramer Striker 424cm custom let me tell you I play metal and punk exclusively. I have played Jackson, Ibanez, Gibson
Esp etc. These guitars play even better they have that fat hard crunch and screeching highs you need for soloing and are well worth their price considering it plays just as good as a Dk2 compare 375 to 250.

Ben, I think you need to get your head out of your ass. The original Kramers (USA MADE) were great guitars. If they were such a "piece of crap" then why did so many players use them? They had great necks!! I havent had the chance to get my hands on one of the "NEW" Kramers yet But for the money they can't be to bad!!! I do know that they are made per the original specs. I own a Jackson pro and 2 les paul customs and I still miss the Kramer ST I had in the late 80's it was just a great playing guitar with killer tone. All in all it's player pref. and if the guitar looks and sounds like you want it to then go for it.

Re: Value of a 1966 Yairi Virtuoso

: I've looked all over the internet, but can't find anything on the value of Yairi guitars from around the 1966 period.

: Label on the inside reads 'B&M Virtuoso, Hand Made by Yairi, Serial Number 33, AD 1966 (Japan)'.

: I'd appreciate any help, thanks. Hi it looks like we are both in the same boat! I have just inherited my late father's guitar. This is also a Yairi Virtuoso dated 1968, serial No 215. I will be seeing a guitar expert on Tuesday 26th Oct, I will let you know how i get on!
