yeah.

the kramer didnt work out...dont get me wrong..the neck was nice, the frets were alright, and the sound was ok for stock pups

but the plywood thing bothered me, and the trem did too, and just all the upgrades i was going to have to do just made me sick....SO i went back and did an even exchange for a guitar brand ive never heard of: austin

austin tour pro:

they are MIK guitars but boy am i impressed...for real this time...

the frets: low, good for low action and fast playing

the neck: thin, and a little flat...its a prs style of guitar with an ibanez neck

sound: its got some al nicos in it...dont care much for em, they will be swapped but i havent had a chance to plug it in yet...(at a friends house)

Bridge: tune-o-matic....taking a break from trems...yeah lol i think we all can agree unless i buy a high quality trem, i might as well stay away

price: $150 with out a singe scratch or mark on it...looks like it hasnt even been plugged in

retails for 300 ish

picture: (ill take one of the actualy guitar tomorrow) this is the guitar but mine is in tobacco burst, this one is cherry

ok here are the pictures!

this guitar is a little different...there is no "switch" for pick ups...there are 2 volume knobs...you can turn each volume knob on or off or slightly on or what ever and that activates the pick ups....its kinda cool because its great for controlling tone...maybe ill replace it with a push pull pot but for now i like it...
