What? I could get an Indo Ibanez for that kind of money!
The Nightswan is perhaps one of the best looking reissued guitars.
On another note, EVH & Gear TV is a very good channel for anyone who likes EVH/Kramer Guitars, Line 6 products and interviews
Was he able to drop those prices with a straight face, and if so, did you ask him how he did it?
For a short time I had a kramer V type made in indonesia and it was the first non-MIJ or MI-USa guitar I didnt want to use as firewood. Now if Ibanez could get consistency like that with their indos...
I like the fact the kramers are back, I'm curious as to what they'll retail for here in japan because I could use a cheap guitar to practice soldering and modding on.
I'm assuming it'll be the same factory where Epis are built?
I love the look/spec of that blue SM-1, but those prices for made in China are a bit steep (to put it mildly).
Those are only the MRSP though. Once they hit the stores it will be a good bit lower.
Kinda wish they'd bring back the neck through, floyded, SD equipped Baretta Pro from the Music-Yo era. Had one for a while and it was seriously a beast of a guitar for peanuts.
The EVH Gear youtube channel had a live even with an episode of Kramer Korner that featured the Product Manager from Epiphone/Kramer discussing the price of the new guitars and demoing some of them.
Looks like 31 minutes in for pricing... Jersey Star $1144 and Night Swan $899 for those that don't want to watch the LONG video
They need to bring back the tele instead of that abortion Assault.
If they are still indonesian made, thats a LOT of money for possible firewood. Gibson pricing?
Not really. Schecter, LTD and Ibanez have pushed Indo pricing comfortably into the $800 to $1200 range, not to mention certain Sig. models in the $1500+ range and Strandberg pricing.
But, it's been indicated that these are likely not going to be Indo.
Maybe Korean made at world music? I'd totally get behind that if it's the case.
It's probably going to be MIC in one of the Gibson owned Epiphone facilities, which makes the prices seem high, but some of the best, most consistent guitars coming out of China are Epiphones.
I doubt we're going to see as much large-scale production stuff coming out of WMI anymore. They seem to be positioning themselves as more of a "boutique" OEM working on smaller batches for smaller brands.
I agree on the Tele. Do like they're doing with the Jersey Star and release a line of unofficial Mick Mars sig models.
Speaking of WMI, they make the Brian may guitars with the Wilkinson and when i was at kurosawa in Tokyo today, they had ZERO in stock and are taking pre-orders basically, and the color that I REALLY want, Violet Dream, is on the website but is NOT in production... Fucking hell.
Yeah I was only half paying attention to the video while I was doing other stuff, but I do believe it was said that they are being built in the Epiphone factories...
"Kramer guitars 2019" is not a combination of words that I expected to see today. Hm.
I dont think anyone did man. I know that Pixxylixx (now steve from boston) is a massive kramer fan and had been wondering what Gibson was going to do with the property rights and stuff.
