Gearank Recommendation

The Kramer Pacer Classic was featured on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from November 2016 until May 2018.


Kramer is known for being one of pioneers of the modern tremolo bridge design, and while they were not as successful as other big brands, they did have quite the endorsers, with Eddie Van Halen being the most popular.

Interestingly, vintage Kramer guitars have become sought after and highly collectible, and this led to modern reproductions of their classic designs.

This led to the re-release of guitars like the Pacer Classic, which is based on the original Pacer models from 1983.

Its ’80s metal friendly features include a Floyd Rose tremolo, two humbuckers, and a fast action long 25.5″ scale neck.

Here’s another reasonably priced Floyd Rose equipped shred machine for those who are looking to rock the stage ’80s style.
