I looked at various used guitars at music stores. I chose it for the price. I think everyone should buy one whether they play guitar or not. It would look great just hangning on the wall.

Candy apple red. S/S/S in a Strat style. I am very happy with it. I own a Fender Mustang, an 70's Epiphone, a Cort Steinberger copy, and a Kay archtop acoustic as well.
The tuners are real cheap. But so what? It plays great and the intonations was almost perfect.
I use a Magnatone amp. The Kramer has a really great sound in the second and fourth pickup positions. Hardly any hum.
I haven't had it long enough to rate it's durability.
